This is one of the most insulting things that I have every seen, it makes me so mad I actually want to cry. I can’t believe magazines think that they can just dipped a woman in brown paint, give her clothes from my culture to put on and have the audacity to call her an “African Queen”. Growing up I heard so may jokes about Africans and saw the negative stereotypes portrayed by the media that tried to make me feel bad about where I come from. Yet Ive noticed when fashion magazine want to do spreads portraying poise and exoticness they often turn to Africa ( proving time and again that Africa is more than the negative images you see in the media)  but this time, to try and take parts of my beautiful culture and have a white women play the role just proves that beauty cannot be seen in our countries/cultures unless it is represented by White people. 

Stop white people once and for all

we are four queer and trans kids living in a punk house called the void that’s on the brink of facing possible eviction.  multiple forces have combined (people being forced out by the landlady because of a pet, others moving out, others just not having the funds they expected) that leaves us about $1,000 short on rent for october. all of us are calling in our favors, but even with that we still may come up short. finding new housemates is not an option as we are all trying to move out in november.  

 we all have mental illnesses, some severe enough that prevent us from working, and others have been looking for jobs despite this but with no luck. being unhoused would put severely aggravate our already unstable mental health situations for all of us. i don’t think any of us imaged we’d ever be asking tumblr for money, but our housing instability has been pushed to the point where we don’t know what else to do.

 after looking into tenants rights and eviction laws in maryland, it seems that if we don’t pay rent in full on time we could be forcibly removed in a matter of weeks, which would leave most, if not all of us without a place to go.

 so that’s where we’re at, seriously any amount, no matter how small would be so greatly appreciated. please send donations to raven’s paypal at indra.now@gmail.com
