Serena Williams and Secret Deodorant Team to Promote Gender Equality

Serena Williams is continuing her mission of women’s equality with a new job title.
The tennis champ is Secret Deodorant’s newest brand ambassador, teaming with the P&G-owned brand to promote gender equality in sports.
“[Secret] has a history of supporting women’s issues and fighting for women’s equality,” Williams said in an interview with WWD, ahead of the announcement on Tuesday. “That’s what I do. I fight for equality and I’m vocal about gender bias. It only makes sense for me to join in this charge with Secret.”
Together, Secret and Williams will be conducting a study on gender inequality in sports to see how gender bias plays out for athletes ranging from high school players to professional sports leagues. The brand will then donate $ 1 million to organizations that address these issues.
The partnership is a natural one for Williams, who has routinely been outspoken on gender-inequality issues throughout her career. Williams most recently spoke on her activism at a press conference on July 13 after she competed in Wimbledon, stating: “The day I stop fighting for equality and for people that look like you and me will be the day I’m in my grave.”
She’s also used fashion as a way to communicate her

Melania Trump Hits Snake River During ‘Be Best’ Trip to Promote National Parks Service

HEAD FOR THE HILLS: While the impeachment inquiry into President Trump heats up inside the Beltway, First Lady Melania Trump winged it out West to visit two National Parks and to promote her “Be Best” initiative.
After landing at the Jackson Hole Airport, FLOTUS arrived in the town square to find several hundred people lined along the sidewalks, including some singing “The Star Spangled Banner,” according to a pool report. Shortly before noon, the First Lady greeted local Boy Scouts, spending 30 seconds to a minute with each. Her latest goodwill mission is meant to draw attention to the wellness pillar of her child-friendly “Be Best” program. Last week she took that message to a more adult audience by ringing the starting bell at the New York Stock Exchange with the help of fourth graders from the United Nations International School.
The First Lady’s 48-hour tour of Teton Country will include stops at two of the 380-plus units in the National Parks Service — Grand Teton and Yellowstone. While the Sept. 23 appearance on Wall Street called for business attire — a black cap-sleeved Prada dress — her journey into the great outdoors started with more relaxed looks. Trump touched down in

Micaela Erlanger Signs On to Promote Platinum Guild

Celebrity stylist Micaela Erlanger has been named official ambassador for Platinum Guild International USA, a marketing board that supports the platinum jewelry industry.
Erlanger — stylist for Meryl Streep, Lupita Nyong’o, Shailene Woodley and Diane Kruger and who last year released a book dedicated to accessorizing — will also be the face of the guild’s Platinum Born jewelry collection. She will make personal appearances and will feature in marketing materials related to the promotion of platinum jewelry.
“I’m passionate about accessorizing, I wrote a book last year about the topic,” Erlanger said of her decision to sign on with the platinum guild. “I think jewelry and accessories really represent your personality and jewelry is such a key component of self-expression and transforming one’s style.”
Erlanger recently became engaged, an occasion that she and her new fiancé marked with a platinum ring.
“Micaela is known for providing a fresh perspective on styling and turning her clients into fashion icons, so she will undoubtedly inspire women everywhere with her accessory advice. Plus, she has an authentic passion for the metal platinum, so it is a perfect pairing,” said Platinum Guild International USA president Jenny Luker.

Jason Momoa Shaved His Beard to Promote Plastic-Waste Awareness—and Looks Damn Good

Jason Momoa is known for having one of the most badass beards in Hollywood. Through all his major roles, like Aquaman and Khal Drogo on Game of Thrones, Momoa has always rocked grizzly facial hair.

But for the first time since 2012, Momoa is going bare-faced and clean-shaven—and it’s for a very good cause.


How to Grow and Maintain a Long, Unruly Beard Like Jason Momoa

Momoa shaved his beard to help promote awareness of plastic waste around the world and encourage people to recycle and ditch single-use water bottles. On Instagram, Momoa wrote: “Let’s make a positive change for the health of our planet. Let’s clean up our oceans our land. Join me on this journey. Let’s make the switch to infinitely recyclable aluminum. Water in cans, not plastic.”

Oklahoma Run ‘N’ Gun Biathlon Use Rainbow Flag Target To Promote Event

 

The organizers of an Oklahoma biathlon have sparked the ire of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community come after using a rainbow flag as a shooting target in a Facebook post promoting their event. 

A photograph which appeared on the official page for Oklahoma Run ‘n’ Gun shows two gun-holding men flanking a rainbow flag, KFOR-TV first reported. A caption beneath the image, which has since been deleted, apparently read: “New high visibility targets on the 500 yard range.”

Organizers of the July 18 event, which combines running and shooting, told Freedom Oklahoma Executive Director Troy Stevenson that the post was intended as a joke rather than an offense to the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community, and that the colorful print had been selected because participants had complained about not being able to see the targets clearly.

Stevenson, who says he reached out to members of the group, nonetheless described the image as something that had been created by “people [who didn’t understand] social media or how bad their joke was” in an interview with the news station.   

But that hasn’t stopped local advocates from condemning the image. 

“Since it said, ‘Our new target,’ and it had guns…I took it as a threat,” one told the news station. Added another: “I think for many gay men and women in the state of Oklahoma, we feel as if we walk around as targets.”  

Meanwhile, Oklahoma Run ‘n’ Gun officials poked fun at the backlash in a subsequent Facebook post.

“Alright. I’ll admit. We’re not the brightest crayons in the box,” they wrote.

Giant Penis Sprays Confetti To Promote Safe Sex … Come Again?

When a man in a giant penis costume ejaculates confetti on people, you pay attention.

But are you thinking about practicing safe sex?

That’s the dilemma facing a wacky PSA in Norway to combat the increase in STDs there. “Penis can surprise you,” says the tagline in Norwegian.

The PSA was produced for Norway by the Swedish Association for Sexuality Education (RFSU).

penis

A spokesperson for the Involve! ad agency behind the spot told the Mirror the commercial is intended to highlight the fun and naughtiness of sex, though admittedly many over 30 “thought the campaign was pointless and some went so far as to brand it banal and idiotic.”

Silly as it is, the video aims its use-a-condom message at 16- to 25-year-olds, the Telegraph reported. “This is a group that is not swayed by lecturing, facts or scaremongering,” RFSU’s Christina Placht said.

The guy wearing the getup, 19-year-old student Philip van Eck, reportedly told a Norwegian outlet that he’s happy to do his part: “I thought it was hilarious. If I can help others, just by being a dick, there is nothing better.”

Here’s What Happened When a Lesbian Photographer Used Art to Promote Love

It all started with a hot shower and a little mind-wandering. Photographer Steph Grant, famous for her lesbian wedding photos, which have won the Internet, started the Promote Love Movement because she realized her true life’s mission is, “Promoting love…one story at a time.” Grant says that the movement is “centered around being true to yourself, loving others and sharing all of the stories.”

Grant is inviting everyone and anyone to upload pictures to Instagram promoting love in any form (like volunteering, falling in love, connecting with family, working to change the world) and to #PromoteLove.

Starting May 1, every Friday, Grant will choose one photo and contact the poster so that she can feature an image of her or him or them along with a Q&A on her site. To assure that the movement serves its purpose of serving the community, a portion of all the proceeds from Promote Love t-shirt and sticker sales, which Grant hopes people will use to show their support of the movement, will be donated to a charity of the month.

Jenny Block: How did the Promote Love Movement come to be?

Steph Grant: I’ve spend a majority of my time traveling the world photographing lesbian weddings and corporate events. In the summer of 2013, I photographed a wedding in Los Angeles and the photos went viral. It travelled all around the world and love was spreading like wildfire.

When talking about this wedding, I found myself using the phrase “Promote Love.” Since then, just about every lesbian wedding I have photographed has been featured somewhere incredible. What a good feeling to have these love stories told to the world. My goal is to showcase the LGBT community in a positive light and knock stereotypes out the window.

Last month I was singing in the shower and I had this idea to make some products surrounding the idea of promoting love in hopes of bringing people together through my love of storytelling.

Two weeks ago, I walked into a store on lower Greenville in Dallas, TX called Bullzerk. Struck up a conversation with the owner, shared our stories and I told him about my idea with Promote Love. Dan was on board and is really big into helping out small businesses in the area. Right then and there we designed a logo, designed shirts, tanks and he was going to have them all printed in a few days. Basically I watched my entire idea come together in a matter of hours. All because two strangers started talking about their lives.

I had the shirts in time to go to Dinah Shore in Palm Springs, CA where I started talking with people about the brand and passing out stickers. This was all last weekend! I started selling shirts out of my loft and completely sold out of the first batch within a couple of days.

Jenny Block: Why do you think it’s important?

Steph Grant: A few reasons. It’s important because I see it changing the way people view others who are different than them. It may be at its very beginning stages but I already see it bringing people together. If it only brings a few people together then my job is done. Also, this project has helped me get out of some dark places. When I refocus during those times and put my energy into helping others, it always brings me out. I hope that this will do that for others who are possibly struggling.

Jenny Block: Do you think promote love will help the LGBT movement?

Steph Grant: Absolutely. That is my goal. This is not just an LGBT movement though… that just happens to be my story. Although we have made progress in the world as far as the LGBT community and marriage equality there is still so much hatred and bullying towards our community. Perfect strangers will comment on my images of loving and happy LGBT couples with hateful comments like “first class ticket to hell.”

This person does not know that I was born and raised in church. I was a praise and worship leader for years and volunteered in just about every area of my church. A lot of my friends actually come from that same background. So before you spew words of hate in person or online, check yourself. Form your own opinions. Don’t just repeat things you were told. Do your research because there is someone on the other end of that hateful comment, someone with a heart and a good story.

Jenny Block: Where are the furthest places you have been asked to ship your shirts?

Steph Grant: I’ve been asked to ship shirts to Germany, Italy, Australia, Ireland and Canada.

The Instagram account has been live for basically one week and there is such an outpouring of love and support. I am super excited to see how big this can get. I’m determined. People just want to get on board and I love it.

Jenny Block: Why do you think people have responded to it so openly and positively already?

Steph Grant: I think that everyone just desires to be and to feel loved. Accepted. Not tolerated (I think that word is gross.) There are so many of us who go through life not feeling loved and completely alone, dealing with some huge circumstances by ourselves. I don’t want that. I want someone to see this message… see all of us wearing these shirts and for it to spark a conversation. Maybe even end with a hug. I want it to bring strangers together.

Who better to model Britney Spears’ lingerie line than the pop icon herself?
