Kerry Soraci (@kerrysoraci) from St. Louis, Missouri is a tattoo artist and many of her clients are breast cancer survivors and post-op mastectomy patients who want to reclaim their bodies after losing their areolas and nipples. So this “tit-too artist” tattoos mandalas, flowers, or butterflies on their breasts. Soraci’s body-modifying art challenges our notions of aesthetics and feminine beauty standards. In her own words, Soraci is “going to rewrite what beautiful is.” . . . #cancer #cancersurvivor #breastcancer #tattoo #womeninbusiness #nippletattoo #areolatattooing #mastectomytattoo

Wife and husband duo Shannon and Phil Kirkman (@shannonkirkman and @philipkirkman) created and photographed the New York City Taxi Driver calendar (@nyctaxicalendar). NYC taxi drivers provide an essential service and 90% of them come from immigrant backgrounds -- yet most passengers never seek to know them beyond the transportation they offer. To challenge this paradigm, the Kirkmans celebrate cabbies from January to December, showcasing their personality and humor. A portion of their sales even benefit University Settlement, a resource for 40,000 immigrant and working individuals. . . . #nyctaxi #newyorkcity #taxi #wildnewyork #ilovenewyork #photography #nycphotographer

BOOM doesn’t go the rat. In Tanzania, rats are trained to detect landmines leftover from times of political unrest (@herorats). Unlike humans, a rodents acute sense of smell and lightweight frame allows them to safely detect landmines without triggering an explosion.

Miles Kilburn (@miles_kilburn_design) of Loughborough University in England is the designer of Breathe, a gender affirming chest binder for trans men and non binary people. Chest binders compress breasts making gender identity expression easier to present. But traditional binding methods can lead to shortness of breath, overheating, and breast tissue injury. Alternatively, Breathe has an accelerometer that adjusts tightness using just a button, for a safer experience. Kilburn’s hopes more gender affirming products will enter the market, changing more lives. . . . #transgender #nonbinary #genderfluid #transman #trans #ftm #binder #agender

In 1998, lawyer Rob Bilott discovered evidence that a local chemical company wanted to bury. DuPont chemical had released an unregulated chemical, PFOA, into the drinking water. The synthetic “forever chemical" is impossible to break down and killed 190 cows in the West Virginia area. DuPont’s negligent water pollution caused countless cases of cancer, thyroid disease and possible birth defects, and poisoned the world for the last 40 years. . Inspired by true events, @darkwatersmovie, starring Mark Ruffalo, Anne Hathaway, Tim Robbins, Bill Camp, Victor Garber and Bill Pullman, is now in theaters.

Habiba Nowrose from Dhaka, Bangladesh photographs from the lens of women’s rights. Her portraits are rich with motifs that signify personality, from bright flowers to colorful garments. But the most identifying aspect of the Nowrose’s subjects are missing -- her models’ faces are covered with fabric, leaving only an outline of a figure behind. Her series “Concealed” reflects on women’s personal sacrifices to meet societal expectations. This assimilation leaves the faceless subject anonymous to themselves, and their viewers. . . . #bangladesh #photography #textiles #genderidentity #femaleartists #portraitart #womenartists

Every weekday in North America, 46 mothers find out their child has some form of cancer. So each year, in solidarity with their children, moms like Courtney Moore gather to shave their heads at the "46 Mommas" event. Through these head-shaving events St. Baldrick’s (@stbaldricks), the organization behind “46 Mommas”, has raised over $2.2 million. The event and network raise awareness for pediatric cancer, but most importantly these moms honor their children who are in remission, still battling, and those they have lost.

When Eva Sweeney (@crippingupsex) was a teenager, there were no sex-education programs catered to her — Sweeney is queer, has cerebral palsy, uses a wheelchair, and is non-verbal. So for the past 15 years, Sweeney has been teaching the mobility-specific sex education that she always wanted to learn. The advocate educates from assisted masturbation to talking to aides about dating, and when she’s not teaching, Sweeney runs a sex toy review blog through an accesssibility lense. Sweeney’s goal is to help people with disabilities learn how sex can work for them. . . . #disabilityawareness #accessibility #sexeducation #inclusivity #documentary #shortfilm #accessible #inclusive #representation
