Had to wear a party dress for the premiere of GLOW!! So proud of @officialalibrie and co-creator Carly Mensch. Two of my favorite people made television magic together.
My grandpa was my dad for all intents and purposes. Here he is- guarding over me as I sleep, kitten on tummy, arm resting on a pile of stuffed animals. He would do silly voices, sneak me candy, pretend to be asleep when we were annoying him & generally be the best. He held your hand so tightly that we called it, "the claw." I think a lot of grandpas & family members fill in the gaps for biological dads who are ill-equipped or unable to parent well. I'm so grateful that Papa made it to 95 but, boy, do I wish he was still here with us today.

I have learned about so many of the women of early Hollywood from the Women Film Pioneers Project from @columbia. Here's what they are about: Women Film Pioneers Project (WFPP) is a freely accessible, collaborative online database that showcases the hundreds of women who worked behind-the-scenes in the silent film industry as directors, producers, editors, and more. Always expanding, the database features career profiles on each pioneer, longer overview essays on national cinemas and occupations, still and moving images, and archival and bibliographic resource materials. The goals of WFPP are to jumpstart historical research on the work of women filmmakers from the early years of cinema, ending with the coming of sound; to facilitate a cross-national connection between researchers; to reconfigure world film knowledge by foregrounding an undocumented phenomenon: these women worked in many capacities.

As I watched the latest episode of RuPaul's Drag Race, I wondered, "When did I first fall in love with RuPaul?" It feels like I've been a fan my whole life. Then I realized it must have been my dance teacher Doug Miklos who sparked this love when I was a kid. We warmed up to "Covergirl" every week in class. At the beginning of Pride Month I wanted to take a moment to remember Doug Miklos and all the other extraordinary LGBTQ people we lost to AIDS. I'll never forget watching Doug's final dance performance. He was very sick and frail at this point but it was one of the most incredible performances I have ever seen. Thank you Doug for your patience (I must have been one of his worst students), kindness and for introducing me to RuPaul. I wish you were here to see Drag Race and all the amazing Pittsburgh queens slaying on the show.
Jean Sammet wrote a comprehensive book about the history of computer programming languages in 1969. #womeninstem
I love wearing @creaturesofthewind. Thank you to @bobbyeliot & @stephensollitto for the hair and makeup! Styled by @caleyrinkerstudio.
Jean Sammet learned to program computers when the classified ads were still separated by gender. Jean developed FORMAC. Jean was the first female president of the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM). Jean was on the committee that created COBOL. Jean Sammet was a badass. I'm so grateful that I got to meet her.
