Saturday fun activity: Where IS this?



     We focus so much on intolerance—and rightly so, particularly during this memorably awful presidential campaign of 2016—that we forget just how compassionate people can be. Despite the goal line stance that certain Southern states are making regarding toilet use — they just can't move from one room into the next without leaving claw marks on the doorway, can they?—in general the mainstream seems to be not making quite the huge honking deal over transgender people as it did over other minorities.
     Maybe it isn't compassion, but Repression Fatigue. 
     Anyway, I don't know that this prominently displayed and charmingly amateur portrait is a transgender woman. It could just be a blonde gal with broad shoulders and a five o'clock shadow. But I've always considered it such, displayed prominently in a place where I go as often as I can.
    Where is it? Shouldn't be too difficult, I imagine. Notice, if you can—I didn't focus on including them when I took the shot—what the light fixtures are made of. Creative. But there you go.
     Winner receives one of my endless store of blog posters. Place your answers below. Good luck.

  1. I don't know where this is but did you mean a Trans WOMAN ( which refers to someone born genetically male but identifying as female). A Transgender man would not likely choose to wear a flowered top and long hair, things associated with women

    2. The distinction is apt and pointing it out unfortunately necessary. It's very difficult not to regard a transgender woman as "really" a man. And if people inclined to be tolerant and accepting have that difficulty, you can easily imagine how utterly impossible it is to accept a transgender woman as anything but a faux woman for those not so inclined.

  5. Seems like a slow day here. Must be the holiday weekend. I keep checking back to see the answer, and nothing. It looks to me like the light fixtures were made from colanders, and that made me think it could be a cafe affiliated with a culinary school. I did a bit of research along those lines but couldn't come up with anything to point me to a specific school.

  7. NO idea why it says "Parent of 4th Grader", said Lowtech LarryL. I can't figure out how to put in my Comcast email address.
