Queer in Nigeria: new short film explores life & violence in a country where queerness is criminalized

Posted on December 2, 2016 at 12:04pm 2 Comments

Queerness on the continent is often met with persecution, violence, and ostracism, and new legislation has been popping up in West and Central Africa criminalizing gender identity and sexual preference at an alarming rate. New documentary “XIV” is a short film following RXMXT visual artist and aspiring filmmaker from Lagos, currently residing in Galesburg, Illinois, and the struggles as an openly queer person in one of the most “progressive” countries in West Africa, and a…

Religious intolerance comes in many forms and is present in every country on this beautifully terrible planet.

AFROPUNK Brooklyn portrait series captures the effortless essence of Black expression

Posted on December 1, 2016 at 1:35pm 0 Comments

What’s better than AFROPUNK Brooklyn? Not much, but the art that’s inspired by it is a close second. Photographer Andrew Boyle is using the beauty, poise, and style of AP BK festivalgoers as the muse for his portrait series and the final product is brilliant. Cast against a deep gradient of blue hues, each subject is looking off into the distance, as if to dream of the full freedom their beings exude in the frame. I’m in love with these photos and they’re reminding that…

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.
