FEATURE: musician/actress/activist/general bad-ass Amandla Stenberg comes out in Teen Vogue

Last week, musician/actress/activist/art hoe collective co-founder Amandla Stenberg came out as bisexual during her Snapchat take-over of Teen Vogue magazine, in honor of her February 2016 cover. “As someone who identifies as a black, bisexual woman I’ve been through it, and it hurts, and it’s awkward and it’s uncomfortable… but then I realized because of Solange and Ava DuVernay and Willow and all the black girls…See More

FEATURE: Self-described "Afrotransfeminista" activist-writer-academic Maria Clara Araújo speaks on prioritizing transgender acceptance and safety in academia

Posted on December 30, 2015 at 12:30pm 0 Comments
