Photos explore dynamics of youths’ sexual identity

In this photo taken on Monday, April 21, 2014, Foster Noone, 17, of Pelham, Ala., looks at a personal photo in a new exhibit featuring images of young people with varied sexual identities and preferences during the installation of the work in Birmingham, Ala. Self-identified as gender fluid, Noone is among a dozen young people who posed for photos in the exhibit, which opens Wednesday, April 23, at the Birmingham Civil Rights Institute. AP

For many, it’s difficult to understand Foster Noone’s sexual identity. The 17-year-old uses the labels of bisexual, trans and gender neutral all at once.

Entering the monkhood a rite of passage

In this April 8, 2014 photo, a boy, right, reveals his newly shaved head to his mother as a Buddhist monk shaves the head of a man during an ordination ceremony at a Buddhist monastery in suburbs of Yangon, Myanmar. Though most boys only remain monks for a few days, ordination is seen as a right of passage in this predominantly Buddhist nation of 60 million. AP

With golden umbrellas covering them from the equatorial sun, boys in princely attire are hoisted onto the shoulders of their fathers and uncles, part of a ritual carried out this time every year at Buddhist pagodas all over Myanmar: young would-be-novices preparing to enter the monkhood.

Literary Dublin offers much more than Bloomsday

This March 14, 2014 photo shows the Samuel Beckett bridge across the River Liffey in Dublin, Ireland. The bridge is designed to evoke the image of a harp lying on its side. Many famous writers were born or lived in Dublin and the city is filled with plaques, statues and bridges commemorating them. AP

James Joyce immortalized this misty port city in his literary epic “Ulysses,” though many Dubliners freely admit they haven’t read a word of the stream-of-consciousness novel. That doesn’t stop them from throwing a huge celebration every June 16, honoring the day in 1904 when the fictional Leopold Bloom perambulated through the streets of the author’s hometown.

‘A Window on Eternity’ finds joy in African park

Book Review A Window on Eternity

Biologist Edward O. Wilson doesn’t spend a lot of time in his exploration of Mozambique’s Gorongosa National Park on the American entrepreneur who sponsored its rebirth after a 14-year civil war. Instead, “A Window on Eternity” focuses on what is working among the animals in the park, and the result is a virtual nature walk through an African landscape.
