OP-ED | To Black Women: No, Azealia Banks is not the reason why "no one wants to work with us"

I heard of Azealia Banks in early 2012, while still in high school, still living in Germantown, Maryland. This was around the same that I discovered Mykki Blanco, Cakes da Killa, LE1F, and Junglepussy. This was the new exciting sound coming out New York’s queer, inclusive, underground arts scene—I use the term “inclusive” loosely, as it’s only as inclusive as New Yorkers ever could be. Around this time, there were a lot of underground musicians on the West Coast scene gaining traction like…See More

"About that Mel Gibson bit, I'm pretty surprised no one HAS said anything about that, but it would most definitely explain his slow fall from grace. The reason white men don't have to go through that is because it is easy for some of us to…"

EVENT: Black queer folx attend intersectional dialogue at the Queers on Smash’s first Black Queer Social in Cape Town

Bodies and spaces are political; the Black Queer Social was no exception to this. Organized by Queers on Smash, the first Black Queer Social, held on the 30th of April, created a space for black queer bodies to gather and begin to tell stories where we were no longer asked to be black first and queer later or told that we were too queer to be black. 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

I’ve heard the talk about Black women and how unloveable we are. How we got “too much attitude” and “too much drama.” Somehow, our attitudes are personal flaws instead of responses to systematic issues. I’ve heard people refuse to love Black women because of how we respond to our oppression. Black women’s bodies and access to the love that supports their bodies are targeted. We refuse to love Black women because we refuse to be reminded of the hatred that exist in our…
