Ruby Rose has admitted she doesn’t identify as either a woman or a man and instead describes herself as gender fluid. The 28-year-old model and DJ last week released a short film, Break Free, dealing with the topic of gender identity, which she wrote, produced and starred in. In the emotive piece, Rose transforms from a buxom blonde with long hair to a heavily tattooed man with short hair. It quickly went viral and earned praised from her fans, who saw it as semi-autobiographical. “Whether straight, gay, bi, trans … body image and identity can be a struggle for us all,” said Rose. “This video was made to challenge that status quo.”
Gavin Peacock from FlippedSociety custom built his own Russian swing and used it to fling himself and others into a lake. Unlike most swings, the device has steel bars instead of ropes and is often used by circus performers to pull off high acrobatic jumps. Holy sh*t this looks like fun!

Every few years we get a time travel movie. The last one of any note (that I can remember, at least) was Looper, which starred Joseph Gordon-Levitt as a man who ends up having to assassinate himself in the future. Now Ethan Hawke is taking a swing at the same subgenre with his role in Predestination. The film features Hawke as a Temporal Agent – that is, the kind of law enforcement official who prevents crimes before they happen. He’s sent on a series of time-traveling journeys to ensure that his career carries on infinitely into the future. Now on his final assignment, he searches for the criminal that has escaped him throughout time.
