that make me feel alive

Love isn’t soft, like those poets say. Love has teeth which bite and the wounds never close.

David Wojnarowicz wore this jacket in 1988, just 4 years before he’d ultimately die from AIDS. Sadly, just a few years ago some of his artistic work was censored at the Smithsonian. People in power are still content to try and erase his history and the continued struggles of people with AIDS.

Happy Easter.
