Stunning Photo Series Pays Tribute To Icon Grace Jones on her 69th Birthday

Posted on May 19, 2017 at 11:28am 1 Comment

It felt like she,…

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.
