Bubblegum Club (@bubblegumclubbb) featured Mziyanda (@queenlohaanda) and I on their website today. Honestly all I can say is that I was SHOOK that they agreed to do something with us. But anyway, besides the point.
I was walking today on Sir Lowry road, listening to The Voice Within by Christina Aguilera and I just was crying with such joy, because never ever if you told me when I was thirteen that this would happen. I HATED myself, I hated who I was and what I was. I hated that I let people bully me and tell me who I was before I knew myself.
But now, I read this article with such pride and happiness for myself. I am now becoming in touch with my own identity and what it means to be a feminine queer body.
And yes, it's cute that me and my best gal got a feature, but let's think about all the marginalised queer bodies in this country and how THEIR voices aren't being heard. THEY are the important ones that have shaped our art and culture. We need to think about them and how we can help them. I hope that some people find this article and are a little inspired and motivated to be themselves unapologetically and shine like the real queens they are because who has the time on pretending to be some basic person you aren't? Honey, I know I don't. 💅
Let's embrace our beautiful quietness that shines so bright and project it into the universe and create the art we are so capable of doing. ❤💛💚💙💜 LINK IS IN MY BIO
