Why Dark-skinned People of Colour with marginalised gender identities?
Overall, the majority of People of Colour are under-represented or misrepresented.
This representation then lessens the more melanin you have. And if you’re a woman, non-binary person or trans-man. ‘Colourism’ as Lupita Nyong’o calls it “the daughter of racism” plays a big part and this platform is a way for us to challenge those ideas and create beautiful positive content exclusively for us.
When she is told, her skin is ‘too dark. I do not hesitate to offer ‘that the sun loved her so much, it kissed her more than the rest of us’
