During my interview with @oxosi I was asked what I would want to say to the little black girl out there who’s watching my progression... I’d like to share some of my answer here in an attempt to start your week with positivity and love. I hope it reaches you! ⠀
“You are beautiful even though society will probably tell you you’re not. Your biggest asset is staying true to yourself and finding that internal home... because you can never be strong for anyone else if you are not for yourself. Hone into who you are, because that's what is beautiful. Nothing else will be, and nothing else will matter.”⠀

Mood for your Monday, Hail the Dark Lioness.
South African photographer Zanele Muholi took a self-portrait every day for year – to capture the hate crimes, homophobia and injustice she experienced and saw around her.
"The Photographer Challenging the Idea That Being Queer Is 'Un-African'", @broadly on @muholizanele and her work as a visual activist. If you're in NYC check out the exhibition over at the Yancey Richardson Gallery in Chelsea.
A literal throwback for your Thursday by @robins_robin. Can't wait to share the rest of these with you! ⠀
RP @milk ・・・ "It’s as if the viewer is being hunted, taunted in the darkness of the jungle. It’s sadistic, it’s sensual, it makes you feel sunken into this reality."-@oyinda
RP @zendaya@huffpost ・・・ The NFL season started, and yet Colin Kaepernick (@kaepernick7) ― the former San Francisco 49ers quarterback who spent the 2016 season kneeling through the national anthem to protest racism and police killings of black Americans ― still doesn’t have a job.⠀
Police and law enforcement officials killed at least 223 black Americans in the year after Kaepernick first began to protest, according to a HuffPost analysis of data compiled by The Washington Post and The Guardian.⠀
