To finish out #Pride month, we did a quarantine pride party at home! 🏳️‍🌈 I love the LGBTQIA+ community so much. In the truest sense of the word: love. Unconditionally. I am lucky and grateful to know so many incredible people that have been willing to teach me as I grew up, shape my path in life, and trust me with their truths. I take none of it for granted and I’ll always fight for you. You have me forever. And, ALWAYS remember: #blacktranslivesmatter 🖤 Don’t forget to keep being a conscious accomplice. Love is love, and I love y’all. Happy Pride 🏳️‍🌈😘 . . . 📸: @lindseythompsonstudio

I love my mommy 🖤(SWIPE ) Racism is the nastiest, most rampant and unaddressed disease in the world. I have witnessed it from the time I was a baby. I recognize that as a biracial black woman with fair skin, I have been benefited from privilege throughout my life. It has also given me a front row seat to white people being racist because they thought my fair skin or the fact that I don’t “act” black (not a thing ) gave them a PASS. In case there was any confusion among those people, it doesn’t. Micro aggressions are also traumatizing and internalized over long periods of time. A small sampling of some I’ve experienced first hand: -people thinking my mom was my nanny/maid -little girl asked me if my mom was my “real” mom (?!! ) when I was 8 -countless friends thinking they can make black jokes around me or get away with saying the n word around me throughout my life (as I’ve aged, I’ve had the courage to confront this more, so I see it less— but I also know that when I’m not around this still happens, y’all ain’t slick ) -white people referring to my hair as nappy, and/or touching it without asking. We keep telling y’all and you still do it 🙄 My oldest brother is not biracial. He is 100% black and 19 years older than me. My moms first child. He looks like any of these black men that are being MURDERED by police in America. My mom looks like any of these women. And to be honest, your shade doesn’t matter. Any of my three brothers could be attacked for being any shade darker than white. I fear for all of them, constantly. They’ve all been profiled in the past. The silence among certain people in my life is deafening. To try and ignore this revolution is to be on the wrong side of history. It may sound harsh, but I don’t want friends like you. We need allies, people willing to tackle this racism virus that has plagued us for centuries. It starts in your own life, and I’ve shared (and will continue to share ) so many resources that can help you be a better ally. Listen, pay attention, learn, educate others. Have the tough conversations with people in your life. And don’t stop having them when #BLM isn’t “trending” anymore. Love you all. Keep fighting ✊🏼✊🏽✊🏾✊🏿

Alone Together 🔮 #quarantine Had an amazing FaceTime photo shoot with my ate @lindseythompsonstudio !! It’s so nice to still be able to connect and make art when we aren’t physically present with each other. Hope you’re all staying safe and healthy! ✨ Concept inspired by my love @angelokritikos 😚 . . . . #photoshoot #facetime #love #kaleidoscope #spring #mood #family

(You make me feel like ) A Natural Woman | If I don't have work or an audition, I wear no make up 99% of the time. But it's so easy to get caught up in having a perfectly flawless face (and body ) on social media! I never post close ups unless this face has been concealed, the lashes have been thickened, and these lips have been tinted. So today I wanted to post a real pic of my real face at a really happy moment in my life. Happy Thursday friends! 🥰🌿🐣 . . . . . 📸❤: @ezrashipin #newyorkcity #brooklyn #prospectpark #newyork #eastcoast #travel #natural #naturalhairstyles #nomakeup #summer #spring #city #park #goldenhour #curlygirl #curlyhair #curly #photoshoot #love #happyplace #thursday #throwback #tbt #bodypositive #confidence #selflove #message

PROUD 🏳️‍🌈 to be an ally to such an incredible community. Yesterday was my first Pride parade & festival, but I have been a lover and supporter of my LGBTQ+ friends and family since I was very young. Love is love is love is love is love is love is LOVE, and I am in completely awe of the love I was surrounded by yesterday. As an ally, I will continue to support and advocate for my LGBTQ+ community, love you fiercely, and respect all gender and sexual identities. Thank you all for the constant reminder to stay true to who you are, and that chosen family is sometimes the strongest kind. ❤🧡💛💚💙💜 (Also, hey @mkik808 😘 ) . . . . . . #lapride #pride #pridemonth #lgbtq #lgbtqia #ally #love #festival #parade #family #community #westhollywood #curlygirl #curly #summer #losangeles #fun #rainbow #happy #friends #party #celebration #sundayfunday

🌈 DragCon was incredible! My biggest highlight was definitely meeting @mkik808 . Got super tongue tied and emotional and am pretty sure I forgot to say everything I've ever wanted to say. But he was the kindest and most genuine human, and radiated beauty and joy. Thank you for being unapologetically you, and inspiring all of us to do the same. LOVE IS THE FUTURE! ❤🧡💛💚💙💜 . . . . . #dragcon #markkanemura #love #dragrace #rupaulsdragrace #rupaul #losangeles #dtla #drag #lgbtq #pride #ally #dancer #inspiration #loveislove

I famously cried on my 5th birthday because I was "afraid to turn 5." Everyone was making such a big deal out of this birthday that I thought it must mean something bad was happening. Turns out, everyone was just v excited for me to become a "big girl." Tomorrow I'm going to do another scary/exciting thing and leave on a month-long, NYC journey. Woke up today feeling like I did on my 5th birthday, but now I know that it's because great things are to come. See your beautiful blooms in a month, LA! 🌾💫🗽 . . 📸: @lindseythompsonstudio . . . #losangeles #newyorkcity #newyork #musicaltheater #travel #california #lindseythompsonstudio #photoshoot #curly #curlygirl #curls #birthday #yellow #nature #hike #malibu
