Our LELE Classic gracing the beaches of Tulum and this gorgeous daybed right on the sand so you can fall asleep to the sounds of the waves gentling caressing the shore. Vacation life is so good and we are definitely missing this right now. Happy Hump Day!
#GoThaiBeFree “Thailand captures the diversity and the essence of its people within the gay community, and its entire culture. It’s welcoming to all. Being a queer woman of color it’s hard to find places that are completely inclusive of my queerness as a minority; Thailand however is a safe space. With a thriving, entertaining and beautifully accepting culture it’s hard not to find reasons why I wouldn’t want to visit. As long as I carry my camera and my journal with me on the ride it would be an exciting experience.” #loveislove🌈
I’m so so so happy to be home. But I quickly want to address something I spoke about in my stories the other day. The one thing I love about this island is how rich it is in culture and the way my people converse with each other. But as I’ve grown up, the opening line to many conversations have been about my weight. Particularly me being too something, and usually it’s fat. Growing up, those comments hurt incredibly. I’d think of ways I could lose weight quickly, whether I was beautiful enough, and if I shouldn’t eat my next meal. Despite being an average sized child. 10 years on and while I’m no longer punishing myself; thoughts of worth and beauty come up. I’d probably be prettier if I was skinner. She’s right I probably should lose a few stones. I could go on. But I won’t. A few ladies dm’d me after posting my thoughts. And despite times having changed (in terms of the body positive movement), it would seem that across the board, Nigerians, Bajans, Jamaicans, Trinis etc. are still experiencing the same thing. And probably lots of other babes around the world. This caption was just to say, every time someone remarks on your weight, the size of your thighs or anything else, remember to say (in your head or out loud) “AND FABULOUS BABYYY”. The comments of others won’t effect my holiday. Plus this fat, thick, curvy body of mine is getting me PAID and best of all, I only paid for two drinks the other night, because thickems over here got all the free drinks. So, that’s fat, paid and living lavish. How bout dat!
