"I love Aisha Tyler! She is great and super inspirational for chicks like me who don't conform to the stereotypical idea of what a black woman is supposed to be. It's super untrue and unrealistic. Thanks!"

FEATURE: Oh crap! A black girl gamer!

Posted on October 21, 2014 at 7:38am 3 Comments

I have been playing video games off and on since I was a little kid. I didn’t have a system at home, so I made sure to make friends with the kids who did. That said, why is it my experience is somehow less than in some gamers’ eyes, despite at least twenty years of interest? Oh, right. Because I’m a black girl queer gamer.

FEATURE: Visual Artist AiRich Talks About Her Afrofuturistic and Raw Style

Posted on October 20, 2014 at 10:00am 0 Comments

My name is AiRich. According to the people who surround me, my photography can work safely in the category of "afrofuturism". This has mainly to do with the style, the spiritual aspects that others link to my work. I see this as a great compliment, because my style was first developed by an optimistic philosophy that whatever is inside of me can come out.
