DIY Spell and Potion Book Tutorial from Better After. This is a really good tutorial using plastic toys, a glue gun, cardstock, paper towels etc… This DIY is based on a tutorial by SEEING THINGS - my favorite Halloween Blog that had great printables and tutorials and is now DEAD & GONE. This is why if I see a printable I like, I don’t wait until later to download it.

Woah, this is next-level rad and could be adapted to all sorts of neat projects!!! =O

United Nations Support LGBT Rights In India With Beautiful Bollywood Gay Wedding

Earlier this year, homosexuality was re-criminalised in India. It was the backwards step nobody saw coming, least of all the LGBT community. 

The rights of lesbian, gay and bisexual people in the south Asian country remain unchallenged, despite India now recognising a 'third gender'. In response, the United Nations are using a ground-breaking new pro-gay Bollywood-style music video to push for the country’s Supreme Court to decriminalise homosexuality once again. 

The Welcome sees an Indian family prepare for the arrival of a male relative and his ‘special friend’. Everyone - young and old and even the dog - seems to buckle at the stern glare of their elderly matriarch, so when the ‘friend’ is revealed to be male, we expect her to explode in a firework display of fury. 

But the song’s lyrics instead mirror the matriarch’s internal dialogue, from her hesitant shock to eventual surrender, as she chooses to accept the two men’s relationship. ”It’s a new look, it’s a new attitude”, the lyrics reason. “You might wonder where the old way of living has gone, but who is worried about who likes what? As long as in the world of love two people want to be with each other”.

Featuring the vocal talents of Bollywood singer and UN ambassador Celina Jaitly, The Welcome gives us a visual spectacle to compliment its timely message. And the party that follows expertly demonstrates how a culture doesn’t need to press the reset button to embrace diversity.
