Today is the last in this semester’s series of my college students’ Sexuality in the Media projects.  We’ve had three so far (body shapes, teen parents, and LGBTQQIA).  But today’s project is easily my favorite of the semester.  The beauty of both the image and the message are both stunning.  Melissa Hernandez created this image with the assistance and cameras from her friend, photographer Kat Bevel.


These images are, of course, riffs on the well-known shot from the movie American Beauty:


Thank you, Melissa, for your beautiful creativity.
