All images are for sale. You can also special order different size, or any other image from my web site, www.artdykes.com. To arrange a purchase please call Blue @206 359-5230.



It has been written that I, "S.M. "Blue" Selby transcends the everyday via SLR and LCD. A landscape, a crow, a dew-bejeweled bridge, and the moon become icons either by unblinking exposure via digital SLR, or by destroying and recreating via the kaleidoscope of PhotoShop. Blue has spent a half century in the Pacific Northwest, creating art as musician, sculptor, stand-up comedian, and photographer."

Come see for yourself.

Washington Decline to Sign Referendum 71 [23 May 2009|11:03am]

queerunity
There is a signature drive for referendum 71 to eliminate the Domestic Partnership Expansion Law of 2009 in Washington state. The new law gives many of the rights of marriage to same-sex couples, without changing the current state definition.

Protect equal rights pledge to decline to sign referendum 71.

Move to seattle [03 Mar 2009|11:42am]

pdmorehouse
I'm currently in the process of moving to seattle. I was wondering what everyone uses for internet. Does everyone use comcast? is there an alternative to comcast? is there fiber optic availability such as FiOS? I will be 3 blocks from the QFC at Broadway and Harrison. If anyone has any info that would be helpful please let me know. We are 3 gamer/techie geeks and like our connections fast and loose. well maybe not so much loose but preferably fast.

Did Obama Team Play us On Bishop Robinson? [19 Jan 2009|01:21pm]

queerunity
During the inauguration kick off party at the Lincoln Memorial, openly gay Bishop Gene Robinson of the Diocese of NH gave the opening prayer.

The problem is it was not televised by HBO or NPR and there were 'technical difficulties' making it nearly impossible for the crowd of 500,000 to hear a word.

Demand to know why Bishop Robinson was part of the "pre-show" and therefore not taped.

Diversity Lesson 101: LGBT/Queer Little People [23 Dec 2008|12:41pm]

queerunity
Little People like LGBT people are considered "freaks of nature", they get stares and people misunderstand them. In looking for resources for Little LGBT People, I found virtually nothing. I decided, to make an entry to educate people about little people as well as provide as much info as I can for LGBT Little People. It is my sincere hope that LGBT Little People can find solace, comfort and community and that they can begin to network and build a foundation and support system for their own sub-section of the community.

For more info and resources on LGBT Little People, check out:

Queer Liberationist or Gay Assimilationist? [19 May 2008|09:34am]

queerunity
There are two opposing political viewpoints when it comes to advocacy and than of course there are a variety of more moderate middleground opinions that fall in between the Queer Liberationists and Gay Assimilationist camps.

Gay Assimilationists - This ideology is to make gay/lesbian people seem like average, normal everyday citizens in the eyes of the general public. They want to make the case that gay families deserve equal rights and recognition and they want what everyone else wants: a house with a white picket fence and 2.5 kids. Some Gay Assimilationists are not inclusive of Bisexuals or Transgender people because they feel these groups hurt the gay rights movement. This is not the case for all Assimilationists and many seek to include all LGBT people and create a sense of assimilation into the general society. Gay Assimilationists often seek to advance their agenda through corporate sponsorships and see getting big business and government on their side as a way to advance equality. The assimilationists strive to paint the LGBT community as being no different than the heterosexual world and just want to fit in. They want the rights to marriage, the rights to adoption, to serve freely and openly in the military. Part of achieving these means, Gay Assimilationists seek to tone down the sexual aspect of gay pride, they feel that sexuality is one component of gay relationships and seek to emphasize much more the loving, financial, community, and faith based aspects of LGBT relationships.

Queer Liberationists - This camp of political theory views gender and sexuality in non-conformist ways. They do not apologize for the differences of Queer individuals and do not seek to "fit in". They embrace the idea of "We're Here, We're Queer, Get Used to it!" and believe society must change to accept them rather than they change to mold into hetero-normative society. Queer Liberationists are often but not always concerned with Queer issues as they relate not only to LGBT people but also to capitalism, anti-militarism, sexism, racism and other aspects of social justice. They are less concerned with same-sex marriage, adoption, and don't ask don't tell. Many times but not always they are against the institution of marriage altogether, feel gays are liberated from the idea of raising kids, and are against gays serving in the military because they are anti-military to begin with. Queer Liberationists often disagree with the idea of corporate partnerships and having big business and government intervene in LGBT issues. Queer Liberationists do not seek to hide their sexuality and gender expression, they seek to embrace it and encourage what has conventionally been frowned upon as inappropriate.

These are two diametrically opposed political camps. Most people have various opinions that don't fall so heavily into one party or the other. Where do you lie and what are your thoughts?
