Man, wouldn’t it be cool if we could jump on manhole covers and get lifted 4 stories and collect gold coins for running for the subway?
“‘Q.U.E.E.N.’ definitely is an acronym,” Monae explains during an interview at Fuse HQ. “It’s for those who are marginalized.” She says the “Q” represents the queer community, the “U” for the untouchables, the “E” for emigrants, the second “E” for the excommunicated and the “N” for those labeled as negroid.
"It’s for everyone who’s felt ostracized," she adds. "I wanted to create something for people who feel like they want to give up because they’re not accepted by society."
omg this is beautiful

did I reblog this??? so what.
It was filmed in Kuujjuak and the dogs in it are owned by an actual dog sledder, they did their research. The actors are mainly from Nunavut and they had to learn the Nunavik dialect to make their lines more seamless since Inuit have varied words. They also consulted Innu people to be as true to the cultures as they could. They hired first nations women who know how to sew and consulted elders on how to work with animal hide the way it was done before settlers. The amount of effort put into the movie is great and I can’t wait to see it.
Hazel Ying Lee 李月英 (1912-1944), a native of Portland, Oregon, took her first flight in 1932 at the age of 19. She joined the Chinese Flying Club of Portland and in that same year, received her pilot’s license, becoming one of the first Chinese American women to do so, and among the 1% of American pilots who were women. Following the Japanese attack on China in 1933, Lee traveled to China and volunteered to serve in the Chinese Air Force. As the Air Force did not accept women pilots, Lee settled in Canton and took a job flying for a private airline, before returning to the United States in 1938. In 1943 Lee joined the Women Airforce Service Pilots (“WASP”) which was created in an effort to sustain the war effort and overcome the shortage of male pilots at home. She became the first Chinese American woman to fly fighter planes for the U.S. Army Air Forces. Lee was killed in a flying accident at Great Falls, Montana on November 23, 1944, while ferrying a P-63 from Buffalo, New York.

Look at your bicep definition!!
This means so much to me! I’m working towards emancipating myself from this gangly form and into the glorious transmutation of Angela Bassett (and her muscles) and that’s probably not going to happen but thank you! ; _;
