“This highlights the daily pressures that the LGBTIQ community faces,” Terese Casu, Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras CEO, said in a statement.
“It’s a simple and loving gesture to hold your partner’s hand, however for fear of discrimination, and experiences in violence and abuse the reality is that many in the community still don’t feel safe. We love the awareness that ANZ is raising about this issue for the community.”
While there are infinite ways to celebrate Valentine’s Day, Hater, the dating app that connects you with people who hate the same things, took an unusual route in celebrating love this year: by projecting a drawing of Vladimir Putin cuddling a pregnant Donald Trump.
That’s not a typo; that’s really the image it projected in several locations around New York City on Tuesday night.
The image was projected at three locations throughout NYC: N 6th and Wythe, 14th and 8th, and 15th and 9th. The projections also included Hater’s logo, the upside-down heart, and its slogan, “#LoveThroughHate.”
As for why the app decided to take this approach, Brendan Alper, CEO and Founder of Hater said it was all for the lulz: “Theres a lot of animosity out there, regardless of which side youre on. Were just trying to make people laugh. Through humor, hate can turn into love.”

Sure, you can celebrate your love of Migos any day you’d like, but thanks to a creative project from Spotify, celebrating Valentine’s Day with the Atlanta trio and someone you love just got more exciting.
The streaming service created a website for the holiday that lets you plug a name into the Migos card generator and voila! You’ve got a custom “raindrop, drop top” messagea phrase repeated from the group’s smash hit “Bad and Boujee.”
If you’re unfamiliar with Migos, the Atlanta group rose to prominence with the help of a remix from Drake in 2013. They, however, soared in popularity when they landed their first song atop the Billboard charts with “Bad and Boujee” which Donald Glover famously shouted out while onstage at the Golden Globes.
The catchy refrain of “raindrop, droptop” spawned countless memes, with people taking their own spin on the verse.
Now you too can make your meme, fit to send your significant other on Valentine’s Day. Swipe “dat way” on their site to see all of the hilarious cards and share them across the internet.
For girls, taking the perfect Instagram picture is both insanely important and difficult.
It takes a ton of posing and reposing to look flawlessly breezy, candid and carefree. And posing to look like you’re not posing is truly an art form.
Behind every great Instagram photo is a great photographer we don’t usually think about. The “Boyfriends of Instagram” Facebook page features the men behind the social media beauties and the ridiculous lengths they go to to capture a pic that will get ALL the “likes”.
