Memorial da Paz de Hiroshima, Cúpula Genbaku (原爆ドーム) ou Cúpula da Bomba Atómica
O hipocentro da explosão atómica de 6 de Agosto de 1945 situou-se apenas a 150 metros de distância do edifício, que foi a estrutura mais próxima a resistir ao impacto.

Em 1966, Hiroshima declarou a intenção de preservar a agora chamada "Cúpula da Bomba Atómica" de forma definitiva. Trinta anos depois, em dezembro de 1996, a construção foi registrada como Património Mundial da UNESCO, baseado na Convenção sobre a Proteção do Património Cultural e Natural.

A Cúpula Genbaku insere-se no Parque Memorial da Paz de Hiroshima que contém diversos outros monumentos erguidos posteriormente. 65 anos depois ainda se aguarda por um julgamento por crime contra a humanidade que condene inequivocamente o uso de armas nucleares em conflitos.

A party for transgender people, cross-dressers, transvestites, and the guys and dolls who want to mix it up with ‘em—Trannypalooza isn’t really about female impersonators lip-synching the hits; if that’s what you’re looking for, swan on over to here and here.

Houston LGBTs to celebrate anniversary of repeal of ordinance banning cross-dressing
Back when I was in junior high school — the early to mid 1970s — our school had a dress code that prohibited girls from wearing pants with rear pockets. See, pants that had pockets on the back were “boy” pants, and girls weren’t allowed to wear “boy” pants.
Having always been a jeans kind of gal myself, I broke that rule often. And I got in trouble for it more than once.
