'Fake News' is a myopic and stupid term. The definition you're looking for is Inherently biased info-media conglomerate with a stated agenda rooted in capitalism and white supremacy. God bless Jamal's family and friends during this difficult time.
I always say, and continue to stand by my belief, that going to a performing arts high school is one of the best things you can do for a kid who has talent. #LaGuardiaHS was such an amazing time, but it was a tough one too, since it took me much longer than a lot of my peers to earn what little social graces I have. But there were always people, often women, who made it easier. @isabelleonardny was one of them. Always a sweetheart, with a kind word and willing to keep an eye out for a young freshman as she, a senior at the time, was on her way to bigger things, not the least of which included #Juilliard, award-winning concerts & recitals, and multiple critically acclaimed performances at #Opera Houses around the world. Tonight, she will be taking the stage at the Metropolitan Opera once again, this time originating the role of the title character in Nico Muhly's fresh new work, Marnie, for American audiences. It is with my deepest admiration and respect for this truly brilliant #MezzoSoprano that I say #ToiToi, sending all my love to Isabel for what I know will be an amazing journey. Rock it out, darling!
Tomorrow night, make Thursday your new Friday; join the crew at 147 Bleecker Street, NYC, for a late vibe session with the iconic @yoolamide. Do it For Love, or don't do it at all. See you there!
Fun fact: I cancelled this dude years ago when he decided to run up on problematic 'all of a sudden wants to critique patriarchy'-a$s Taylor Swift during the VMAs, and was all but crucified by a rack of PoC for (apparently) siding w/a rich white woman, and not giving him enough credence regarding his mental health. Fast forward to Fall of 2018, and dem same stans (or whatever) are finally realizing that dude really ain't shxt besides an 8 or 9 figure [rhymes with spoon]. But hey, I get it; Rome wasn't built in a day, and it's going to take time for us to collectively agree that some (a bunch of) well-to-do melanin Folk ain't much more than human-sized piles of supremacist adjacent •trash•, w/an extensive wardrobe and a healthy Roth IRA. #growfromlove ! 😂
FOH. If a disgusting weasel like Harvey Weinstein wants to get out of a rape charge, he's going to hire disgusting weasels to help him do that. Benjamin Brafman being retained at the highest bidder for his services is the only real reason why Weinstein thinks he has a fighting chance. Not because he's innocent, and not because he's not, in the words of a friend, an unrepentant habitual predator. If district attorneys in the City of New York can lock up Black & Brown kids with extended/unjustified sentences for minor non-violent offenses, or refuse to properly prosecute NYPD officers who abuse & execute innocent/unarmed civilians, then they damn well better do their fvcking job when it comes to *an actual serial criminal.* 👎👎👎
This is Honey Davenport - @honeydavenportofficial. I've known Honey for several years. One of the fiercest drag queens in NYC, and a genuine, kind-hearted Black Queer performer. My first experience with her was at #DeBrunch at Loft 142 via @jmx007 and @jtx @lairevents. Last week, Honey was made aware of a disgusting, Anti-Black, derogatory message concerning her slated performance this past Saturday at legendary LGBT establishment, @monsterbarnyc. That message was from one of the managers of this location. It really is time for Black & Brown Queer folx to wake up and realize just how disposable our bodies are in the eyes of white people. There is absolutely nothing that requires us to cater to these abhorrent, ignorant, perpetually violent colonizers, regardless of whether or not they share our orientation. Everything about the Gay Community owes its essence and advocacy to Black Queerness. For the white gays to then turn around and continue their predictable racism knowing full well that they wouldn't have a pot to piss in or a window to throw it out of without us is another nail in the coffin. That being said, FVCK the Monster Bar, FVCK the melanin deficient skidmark that sent this message, and FVCK any other Neanderthal Butch Queen who still believes racist White LGBT folx are the exception. Y'all ain't shit, y'all ain't never been shit, and y'all ain't never gon be shit.
What we're going to stop doing going into 2019 is shaming or criticizing anyone who is a victim of sexual violence for waiting to disclose their experience. And if you're one of those people who's doing the criticism, I just want to express how rancid of a trash pile you look like right now. Enough. #stopviolenceagainstwomen
This applies to all your sangin/gospel/etc. faves. I am sooo tired of the nerve of you all. #wastedgifts
