I’m just sayin’... enjoy the day off ya’ll. ___________________________________________ “What, to the American slave, is your 4th of July? I answer: a day that reveals to him, more than all other days in the year, the gross injustice and cruelty to which he is the constant victim. To him, your celebration is a sham; your boasted liberty, an unholy license; your national greatness, swelling vanity; your sounds of rejoicing are empty and heartless; your denunciations of tyrants, brass fronted impudence; your shouts of liberty and equality, hollow mockery; your prayers and hymns, your sermons and thanksgivings, with all your religious parade, and solemnity, are, to him, mere bombast, fraud, deception, impiety, and hypocrisy — a thin veil to cover up crimes which would disgrace a nation of savages. There is not a nation on the earth guilty of practices, more shocking and bloody, than are the people of these United States, at this very hour.” -Frederick Douglass | July 5, 1852
#flashback to a little over a week ago when I got to hang with these two. Love them so!
This year for #pride, @ayolives and I had the opportunity to share some of our experience via our friend, @jes@jessemcorbin wonderful project. #watch our full video and those from inspiring members of our community, AND hear Jesse’s new song “Listen” by clicking the link in his bio. _____________________________________________ #Repost @jessemcorbin with @get_repost
When I'm around Torya & Ayodele I always feel warmed by their love and inspired by their talent 😍 In our full conversation they shared about their relationship, the pitfalls society has created for those who are bisexual, and the importance of being your true self as a global citizen!!
This is a clip from EPISODE 3 of LISTEN (conversations with LGBTQ leaders inspired by my new song). Full video link is in my bio! #stonewall50#LGTBQIA#wor#worldpride2019 #worldpride
