Hello, boot weather. We’ve missed you. Forget PSLs, our favorite fall accessory is a great pair of boots. That earthy, autumn color palette is always a welcome change in our wardrobe, and nothing complements a chunky sweater than tastefully rugged footwear. To Boot New York is a no-brainer for beautiful, expertly crafted shoes and boots, and we are head over heels for their new Halstead lace-up in Brown.

Half suede, half polished calf, this boot is the epitome of classic fall style. Wearable with jeans, cords, and anything in between, you’ll be ready to lace up a pair and dive straight into a freshly raked pile of leaves. To Boot New York is famous for creating a boot that will last for years and still look current every season. These aren’t just boots; they’re an investment.

To Boot New York Halstead in Brown. $495.00, available at To Boot New York.

Adam Lambert, AT&T, and around 200 fans celebrated the successful end of the second #ATTLiveProud campaign on Monday night at the Highline Ballroom in New York City. Fans gathered for an intimate, acoustic performance by former American Idol contestant, longtime LGBT advocate, and bona fide superstar Adam Lambert. Passport was proud to send three lucky winners and their guests to the event in NYC to raise and encourage LGBT awareness, empowerment, and, of course, pride!

The Live Proud campaign encouraged fans to submit a unique meme on AT&T’s Facebook page telling the world how they “Live Proud.” Four winners were selected from this nationwide contest and brought to New York to attend the finale. As one of the most LGBT-friendly companies today, AT&T is committed to enriching and strengthening the LGBT community nationwide, and has been listed on the HRC Foundation’s “Best Places to Work” since 2004.

Given the success of this year’s campaign, we wouldn’t be surprised if Adam and AT&T teamed up for a third consecutive year to continue this inspiring initiative. Here’s to those who #LiveProud!

Passport had the chance to speak with Adam Lambert on an exclusive #ATTLiveProud Google Hangout earlier this year. Check out the interview here.

Little-Known Philadelphia Artist Creates First Offical Portrait of Chelsea Manning

Since one of America’s most famous inmates, Bradley Manning, officially began living as Chelsea Manning, there has been only one grain black-and-white picture of her. (We’ve used it many times.) Now, a little-known Philadelphia artist, Alicia Neal, a graduate of UArts was commissioned to create the first official portrait of the WikiLeaks leaker.  The official portrait was thanks to The Chelsea Manning Support Network who recognized the unique challenges of getting a portrait drawn because of the high-security facility Manning is in. So, Chelsea Manning drew a self-portrait and mailed it off to the Support Network who commissioned Neal.

Check out the fascinating story over at the Verge for a detailed account of how the portrait came to fruition.

Remembering Jerrie Mock: The Flying Housewife who Became First Woman to Fly Around the World Solo

October 15th, 2014 Joseph Pedro

Jerrie Mock didn’t set out to defy gender norms of the post-World War II generation, but she did when she became the first woman to fly solo around the world. Her aviation destiny all started with a simple conversation with her husband.

“If I don’t get out of this house, I’ll go nuts,” she told him.

“Why don’t just get in your plane and fly around the world?” her husband replied.

“All right,” she said. “I will.”

She did just that. Not only was her proclamation quite grand, her enviable determination is even more admirable. It only took her two years training before she received her pilot’s license in 1958 and she shattered the glass ceiling in 1964.

Leaving Columbus, Ohio aboard her single-engine Cessna 180 with a 36-foot wingspan (which now hangs at National Air and Space Museum) on April 17, 1964, she returned to Columbus after 29 days and 23,000 miles. Dubbed the “Flying Houswive,” Mock was awarded a gold medal by President Lyndon B. Johnson.

Mock passed away earlier this month at the age of 88.

Find out more about this fascinating woman over at the Washington Post.

ABC (the Associated British Coopration) has given a green light to a half-hour comedy about an openly gay soccer player. The network announced the new show, Men in Shorts, which will focus on the real-life of player Robbie Rogers. The celebrated player once played for Leeds United, but retired from the sport after coming out in 2013. Recently, he joined LA Galaxy. While the themes of the show focus on self-acceptance and societal acceptance for gay people in sports, the show will most certainly be lighthearted thanks to writer Claudia Lanow (Rude Awakening) and Jordon Nardino (Desperate Housewives). Lonow told Deadline: “To me, a sports team locker room is a workplace we haven’t seen beforeI was absolutely captivated by his charm and his humor, and I just thought it could make a great show.”

It only took a day before the Vatican backtracked on statements that the Vatican released yesterday that appeared to show a huge shift in the institutions outdated teachings. It was revealed today by Cardinal Wilfrid Fox Napier that “The message has gone out that this is what the synod is saying, this is what the Catholic Church is sayingIt’s not what we’re saying at all.”  The Cardinal also said that the report released yesterday is part of a “working document.” According to CNN, the backtrack comes after outrage from conservative Catholics.
