There is cause for celebration! Last night, the West Hollywood City Council voted unanimously to ban the sale of fur. This makes West Hollywood the first city in the world to refuse to support caging or trapping animals or electrocuting, gassing, bludgeoning, or hanging them and then ripping their skin off, sometimes while they are still conscious.

Fur Free West Hollywood campaign organizer Shannon Keith remarked: “West Hollywood’s ordinance banning the sale of fur is a historic step for the rest of the world, as it is the first city in the United States to pass such an ordinance. Cities like West Hollywood and communities all around the country are recognizing that the fur trade is barbaric, cruel and not fashionable.”

Here’s hoping that more cities follow WeHo’s lead!

    Yay!! This is why I love my city. WeHo was also the first in the nation to ban the declawing of cats. The sale of dogs and cats is not allowed within the city limits, nor is the sale of firearms. In the city’s laws, pets are referred to as “companions” and owners as “guardians.” There are 1,000 dogs per square mile here (that’s 1 dog per 17 people!). We are a very peaceful and animal-loving people. : )

I’m an only child. 8. I knit. 9. I like to press flowers. 10. I like to shrink potato chip bags. I have a tattoo on my wrist that says peace in braille. I feel like I should've been a teen in the 60’s-70’s. I have rainbow gauges in my ears. I’m FTM transgender but only identify as a gay male. I will write to anybody! I love fast food, glass blowing, making solar sensitive paper prints, ceramics, making friendship bracelets, tie dying, decorating my room, shopping online and off (but mostly online), cuddling with my Cockapoo named Mickey,eating candy, making things, fashion, & going to the mall. I can’t cook to save my life. I enjoy Netflix, crafts, & making people laugh, I am generous and enjoy Oldies. Green is my favourite colour. I hate the colour orange. Halloween is my favourite holiday. I’m addicted to playing Kardashian on my Ipod and using Instagram. I want to travel a ton one day, learn German, drive and lifeguard, and be an elementary school art teacher. I collect international stamps, coins, postcards, Betty and Veronica Archie Comics, kawaii stuff, cameos, *stickers*, and trinkets (I pick things off the ground, I’m a klepto like that). I write in a diary everyday. I hate candy corn. I have two cactus plants. I have Facebook, Snapchat, Tumblr and Instagram, so HMU if you want my usernames. I believe loosely in karma, fate, kismet, déjà vu, reincarnation, dreams, destiny & fate. I love for stores: Etsy, Hot Topic, Francesca's, & Claire’s. People say I look like Brenton Thwaites. My Celeb Hotties are: Joseph Gordon-Levitt *swoon*, James Franco, Paul McCartney, Jake Gyllenhaal, John Krasinski & Josh Hutcherson (I have no idea why they all mostly start with “J” lol).

Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that." - Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. "If you wait to tell someone you love them, it’s too late." -Paul McCartney "If you don’t shoot, you don’t score." "It’s all okay in the end. If it’s not okay, it’s not the end." "And in the end, the love you take, is equal to the love you make." -Paul McCartney Looking for: • Penpal • Art Pals • Package Pals • Snail Mail I send small gifts, and even surprise you when I’m thinking of you. **I ask that your age is 18-23.** No country requirements, I enjoy using stamps lol. What I expect from a pen pal is LGBTQA respect and a consistency to correspondence. But I seriously love meeting new people with different interests and writing to them.
