Twilight Lovers (1994) by Tina Fiveash
Inspired by ‘Girl’s Own’ annuals and the Australian Women’s Weekly magazine from the 1950s, Stories for Girls is a tongue-in-cheek attempt to recreate missing lesbian photographic history from an era where homosexuality was a criminal offense, and lesbians were forced to remain in the closet and keep their relationships hidden from society.

Actress Gemma Arterton on a break during the filming of ‘Byzantium’. She went out to the balcony for a smoke and forgot to clean the fake blood off her face. Awesome.

Ayad Ali Brissam Karim was born in Baghdad in 1991.  In 2003 during the Gulf War, the farm of his parents gets into the frontline and is attacked by US-American helicopters.  His uncle Mohammad loses his leg.  His grandmother Telba is injured too when trying to help Ayad.  Ayad’s face is badly burnt, and his right eye becomes blind.
"He left school because the other boys teased him," says his 42-year old father, Ali Brissam Karim.  "He can speak, however he cannot read.  He cannot help us with field work."
Worse than the physical injuries are the psychological consequences.  “Many times a day he asks the same question and becomes aggressive for no obvious reason,” his mother says.  In the meantime, Ayad has undergone medical treatment in the US, however, his eyesight could not be recovered.
