Held in Cape Town which has been labelled as the ‘gay capital of Africa’, the event challenged the idea that the city is an all-inclusive space.…See More

FEATURE: Chicos Project takes queer empowerment to Brazil’s National Congress building in nude series

Check out new editorial series 'Chicos' by Brazilian photographers Fabio Lamounier and Rodrigo Ladeira. The (potentially) controversial series is part of an on-going project to make bold, representative statements about marginalized minorities in Brazil and their turbulent relationships with governmental powers. It was shot outside of the National Congress building in Brasília and features model David, who is completely nude. David's nudity is less gimmick and more of a symbol of empowerment,…See More

OP-ED: FEEL THE FIRE - Black Women Are Not Too Hard To Love

Posted on May 18, 2016 at 12:30pm 0 Comments
