Because beauty is associated with bodies privileged in a white-supremacist, fatphobic, ableist society, models are supposed to fit those ideals. Rather than being a benign example of playing the hand dealt, what magazines and photographers that continually project these images ultimately do is reinforce social acceptance of these oppressive standards, contributing to further…

As well as the everyday folk he does commissions for. See some of our favorite pieces done by…

Hey! I really appreciate the feature you wrote! Do you think you could edit the sentence RXMXT identifies as a genderqueer demiboy, asexual and panromantic to just RXMXT identifies as queer? Thank you so much!

You published a featured article today about #MelaninMonday. Credit for Melanin Monday should be given to bonitaapplebelle from tumblr, not Young Paris. She created it first and started a movement on the site within the black community and he took the name and started plastering 'Melanin' on photos. Please give proper credit where its due.
