NEWSED’s 2019 Civil Rights Gala swaggg. Tonight, I had the honor of hosting this gala with the love of my life. We remembered the Stonewall riots and honored those that paved the way for LGBTQ+ rights and fought and bled for representation which is the only reason I was able to walk into my freedom as a black gay woman. I was so pumped to do it alongside her cuteness: @candicdebaca! #longlivethegays 🏳️🌈🏳️🌈#lookinlikeaplum #candisquincieñeraphoto
My homegirl @leahhjames is out here teaching the world what it means to believe in themselves and I’m so incredibly proud of her. People don’t know how far we go back...both of us met sharing the stage at a church in Queens where the focus of our poems were about finding power outside of ourselves.
Now we’re in Illinois teaching self-love and self-actualization to anyone who is ready to listen. And we spent today in a photo shoot where we are embracing our bodies, affirming ourselves, and reclaiming our temples.
She’s taught me so much along my journey...and she embraced me when I was told, and believed, that my truth was unnatural and unacceptable. Fly, sis! Thank you for your unconditional love and for being with me throughout this transformation 💜
Thank you @cuddlebunnycoven for the amazing experience and to @freehandhotels for the complimentary stay!

The queen @candicdebacad9 met the queen @ocasio2018! I’m so incredibly proud of Candi and the commitment she has made to demystify government. Like Rep. AOC said tonight, it’s not hard to stand for what’s right, it simply takes courage. Thank you for your courage, babe. And thank you for supporting my boo when she fought (and won) to defund the private prison industry. Y’all should talk more.
Oh! And I was there! Ayyyyeeeeee

It was a hell of a weekend...got to be a part of two unforgettable album release parties with my girl @iamsuch (so proud of you sis), got to teach people about their power and challenge them to be free, and now I’m out here in @visitnewsmyrnabeach one of the very few artists around the country accepted to participate in the Leaders of Color Forum with the @americansforthearts. I’m blessed...and tired as hell. But I’m blessed. I made it my mission to start my trip out at my happy place. But the marathon continues...let’s work!
Shout out to the amazing Dr. Nita Mosby-Tyler for sponsoring me on this trip. You are so incredibly loved, appreciated, and admired 💜
