Jumper Maybach brings The Pride Collection to Nashville

LGBT artist and philanthropist Jumper Maybach has unveiled a timely and important new series of works celebrating Pride 2018. The series, titled “The Pride Collection: Introspection,” will be on exhibition (and available for acquisition) beginning July 2 at the Mary Hong Gallery in Nashville. 

These works in this series were created by Jumper to show his love and support for the LGBT community, in addition to all those taking part in the #MeToo movement. 

“This series of works is one of the most engaging and important of my entire career,” said Maybach. “I wanted to create something to show my ongoing love and support for my community as well as the courageous men and women partaking in the #MeToo movement. As a victim of workplace sexual discrimination, I felt it was my duty to stand up and express myself at this pivotal time in history. I want my art to be that beacon of hope that inspires others to standup to ending injustices within society.” 

The collection was unveiled and on display in June in Houston, where the artist was named the Official Artist of Pride. The exhibit was an official part of Houston Pride’s event schedule and received great acclaim. 

“Pride Houston is ecstatic to have this unique opportunity to collaborate with Jumper and The Pride Collection series,” stated Jeremy Fain, Secretary of the Board of Directors for Pride Houston. “Jumper has done so much for our community and we’re looking forward to an evening where the community can come together to celebrate him. This exhibit and evening is going to be very special not only to our family here in Houston but to our family across the country and around the world.” 

Jumper has been featured in major media platforms throughout North America and continues to rise to national prominence as fine artist. His celebrity collectors include transgender rights activist Jazz Jennings, Edward James Olmos and a host of other well-known collectors. 

Again, the exhibit will be hosted by Mary Hong Fine Art July 2–31, and pieces will be available for purchase (both in person and online for those who are unable to attend the exhibition). For more information visit jumpermaybach.com and maryhongstudio.com

I don’t know what it is with men’s jeans that make it so difficult to find the right pair. It takes time to go through all these denim brands and try styles like straight-legged, boot-cut, and then the disco favorite, flared jeans. Thanks to popular metal bands back in the day, acid-washed and stone-washed jeans were a thing–pair those with a biker jacket and some big hair, and you were set.

I think we’ve all been there back in the day when we smoked our first joint, and then some, (sorry mom)–hacking, coughing, and choking on the herbaceous weed. Nowadays, there are several products on the market that produces the same effects but without a sore throat like the popular cannabis edibles.

As an LGBTQ+ patient, you should be able to expect the same high-quality care provided to all patients. Unfortunately, this doesn’t necessarily always prove to be the case. There remains a notoriously significant disparity in healthcare outcomes for LGBTQ+ patients, often related to issues with discrimination among providers.

Even when you find a good physician, this doesn’t mean that everyone interacting with your healthcare information will be as respectful or responsible. It is, therefore, important to be vigilant about how your data is handled. You have a right to privacy just as you have an expectation of fair treatment.
