Demi Lovato says they may not always identify as non-binary

Aug 21 2021 Share

In a recent interview, Demi Lovato expressed that they may not always identify as non-binary as their fluid gender journey continues to evolve.

The singer posted the non-binary announcement back in May, with the term meaning that one does not subscribe to the traditional male & female gender constructs. Whether it is through fashion, lifestyle choices or behaviour, an individual identifying as non-binary is free to express themselves beyond the constructs of the traditional male and female identity.

“I was very nervous in the beginning to come out as non-binary because I didn’t want people to think it was inauthentic. I just wanted people to see what coming out as non-binary meant to my healing process.”

Local youth shed light on unsafe abortions in Malta through art display

Aug 21 2021 Share

Youth pressure group ‘Young Progressive Beings’ and artist Emma Grima have put on an artistic display near Triton Fountain in Valletta which highlights the reality of unsafe abortions in Malta.

In Valletta right now. This project has been a year in the making, and it has been an incredible moment to finally see…

Posted by Young Progressive Beings. on Friday, 20 August 2021

The activists for reproductive justice state that “the total decriminalisation of abortion is discriminatory as it is cruel and it continues to cause unnecessary suffering in Malta.”

The display illustrates ‘we will not be silenced by stigma’ painted in red over a collage of black and white portraits of men and women, aimed at shedding light on the risk and danger of illegal abortions in Malta.

Malta is one of the last few countries in the world with a blanket ban on abortion.


Rare zebra calf with polka-dot pattern becomes internet famous

Rare zebra calf with polka-dot pattern becomes internet famous
Aug 20 2021 Share

The general consensus amongst zebras is a black-and-white stripe pattern, but a little calf has defied the odds and gave the pattern a twist. Born in Kenya’s Mara Reserve, the baby zebra rocks a polka-dot pattern and spotted by a group of photographers who were on the search for rhinos. Photographer Frank Liu noticed the calf which seemed to be of an entirely different species. 

Named Tira by a Massai guide named, you guessed it, Antony Tira, the zebra was thought to have been captured and painted upon. But after this was proven incorrect, Tira followed the tradition of naming animals of significance after being the one to find it. The polka-dot pattern seems to have occurred due to a genetic disorder called pseudo-melanism which forces animals to display stripe pattern abnormalities.
