After Reggie Bullock’s sister, Mia, a trans woman, was tragically murdered in 2014, Reggie made it his mission to spread awareness about issues facing the LGBTQ community. After recognizing his own lack of knowledge, he got educated and is now working with the NBA to use sports as a vehicle of inclusion and acceptance. VICE Sports was with Reggie and his son for their first New York City Pride Parade.
As I was cycling towards White River Park, I saw this guy on a high wheel bicycle. Later, I learned that he crossed the country twice on a bike after first rehabilitating himself from paralysis, clinical death, and a seven-week coma as a result of a car wreck.

What a mark Aretha made on the history of music in my lifetime, from the earlier hits of "Respect" and "Chain of Fools," to my all-time favorite, "Freeway of Love." That song was released in 1985, just a few years after I came out. It was my favorite dance song of the 80s. Her voice just kept you moving to the beat! Plus, the saxophone solo by Clarence Clemons was exhilarating.
It's cool how the video is in black and white until the very end when the car with a RESPECTful license plate turns PINK!
