Oh, and did I mention I love NPR?

Photographer Jeff Sheng's current project, titled Don't Ask, Don't Tell, involves taking portraits of people in the U.S. military who identify themselves as LGBTQ. He does it in such a way, though, that the subjects do not give away their identities. The pictures end up communicating their frustration very clearly. It really makes you think (if you're not already thinking it), why the heck does this law exist? These are proud, free, American people. Let them live openly, damnit.
Successful political artistic ventures never cease to impress me.
NPR wrote it up.
