Every year since 1955, young women have come from across the country in polished boots and their best fringed chaps in order to compete in the Miss Rodeo America pageant. Primarily from the South and Midwest, they bring with them the hopes of garnering a scholarship to further their educations, a Black Hills Gold crown to perch on the brim of their cowboy hat, and the pride of knowing that they’ve earned the title of America’s premiere rodeo queen.

“Sometimes I was worried that maybe my music wouldn’t be embraced by other people because it doesn’t really correlate with what’s trending at this moment, but I think embracing the isolation of that and tasking the risk of making things that doesn’t sound like anything else right now makes music exciting," says Kali Uchis ( @kaliuchis). "That’s part of what makes life exciting. That’s part of being an artist.” Tap the link in our bio to watch the full video.

“We really wanted to create the best content we could ever create for an Arab audience but also from Arabs,” @sofiaguellaty says about @mille_world. “Who better than me or my female colleagues to explain to you what being a woman in fashion, an Arab woman in fashion, means today? It’s a somewhat controversial identity for someone looking in, but being Arab has never truly been explored on a large scale within the digital space.” Tap the link in our bio to read more about the online platform giving a voice to young fashion designers in Arab nations.

The modern seaside city of Tel Aviv is poles apart from Israel’s religious hubs like Jerusalem or Tzfat. Here, on the Mediterranean coast, the beach is a daily congregation of flesh, salt, and tattoos. “People don’t like to dress up—it’s too hot for effort, so lazy, pretty, and naked is the look,” says photographer Mayan Toledano ( @thisismayan), who spent a few days capturing the locals on film.

Los Angeles hosted one of the country’s first #Pride parades in 1970, when homosexuality was still illegal in the state of California. Every year since, a vibrant community has come together in West Hollywood Park to protest injustice and celebrate diversity. Meet Corey Rae ( @imcoreyrae), a New Jersey-born blogger and the first documented transgender prom queen in the U.S. “It’s one thing to transition, [but] it’s another thing to be out and proud,” says the hopeful L.A. transplant. “I’m noticing a lot more trans women here and much more gender fluidity.” Tap the link in our bio to see more from our trip to the West Coast to cover L.A.'s #Pride Parade—the first of a multi-city project that aims to document the diversity of age, race, gender and sexuality of the LGBTQ+ community.

The mother and daughter duo Ashley Rudder ( @ashley_rudder) and Ke’andra Samone ( @cocosamone) attended #Pride out of respect for each other and the queer community. “My mom taught me that I have to be a leader of the next generation and to love everyone no matter our differences,” says Samone who, like her mother, identifies as as a straight female.

At the #Pride March on Sunday in Los Angeles, the official theme of the event was “ #JUSTBE,” a call for participants to each express what Pride means to them in their own authentic way, and in the second year of celebrating Pride under the shadow of the Trump administration, and just a few days after the Supreme Court ruled in favor of the Colorado baker who refused to bake a wedding cake for a same sex couple in 2012, there was an air of rebellion mixed in with the rainbow and glitter-adorned costumes of attendees.
