Listen to Believe The Bloom, the new EP from M(x)BLOUSE aka Johannesburg's Sandiso Ngubane. "Believe the Bloom, as a title, encapsulates a lot of what I talk about in the music, from feelings of rejection in love, and in the social context as a non-binary person," Ngubane says. "There’s also a lot about the self-censorship that one does as a direct result of feeling inadequate, or even invisible."

Now I will believe that there are unicorns...

This is Mykki Blanco's new video, Hideaway: "When we choose to stigmatize those living with HIV, we do a disservice to our own community," says Blanco. "As someone who has lived healthily with the disease for almost 5 years now, I know all too well the fear of persecution and shame, and what that can do to one's character and life. Love and happiness, compassion — they're birthrights of the human condition. 37 million people live with HIV deserve that just like anyone else."

“What I’ve realized is that the personal is political,” Chastity Brown said in a recent interview. “Just by me being a bi-racial, half-black, half-white woman living in America right now is political. Just being a person of color, a queer woman of color, for that matter, is freaking political."

Here's Carried Away, the powerful first single from her forthcoming album Silhouette of Sirens.
