Happy Friday the 13th! Thanks @pbsds for the lovely headshots! I feel like a realtor in bedrock—Hi Wilma, girl! #girlslikeus #blackwoman #smile #melanin #newyork #pbs #firstperson #blackgirlmagic

Norman Lewis, “America The Beautiful,” 1960 from @crystalbridgesmuseum’s Soul of a Nation: Art in the Age of Black Power exhibit. Still processing this experience but it’s raised so many questions for me around the outcomes of black resistance in our world, and how black people make sense of the oppression we face. I’m challenged to incorporate art into my healing and anti-oppressive work as our lives and stories are so beautiful, they deserve to be honored by beauty. #soulofanation #girlslikeus #blackpower #blacklivesmatter #blackart #resistance #blacklove

Thanks again to @facingchangeuk and @dr.candicenicole for a beautiful conversation yesterday. Candice is so pure, and genuinely interested in what makes us who we are. I feel honored to forever be a part of her legendary lineup of interview. Be sure to check out her series at howtoloveahuman.com! 💋💋💋 #girlslikeus #blackwomen #melanin #blacklivesmatter #blacktranslivesmatter #howtoloveahuman #universityofkentucky #blackgirlmagic

26. 📸 @serenajara_
25 took me to task, challenged me to reveal and affirm myself. March tried to hit me with the 1,2 this year but NAHH! Here’s to the girls that won’t shut their mouths. Tonight we dance.

Thrilled to be joining @dr.candicenicole in conversation for @universityofky’s Facing Change Week! “Facing Change is a week-long collaborative program of events and opportunities for university of Kentucky students, staff, and faculty to connect, engage, and be challenged around issues of diversity, belonging, and social justice!” #blackisbeautiful #blackgirlmagic #facingchangeuk #girlslikeus #transisbeautiful #blackwomen #blacklivesmatter #universityofkentucky #aarynlang #transisbeautiful

On the heels of organizing a National Day of Action for the #blackpride4 and after months of anti-black antagonism I have been fired by the Executive Director of GetEQUAL. I am asking that you stand with me and #BoycottGetEQUAL for their history of tokenization and internal violence against the communities they claim to serve. Please share this post with the hashtag #boycottgetequal to your networks. We cannot continue to let non-profits use us as firewood for their hollow goals.

Aww, this is cutest feature from @ihartericka and @girlboss! “Aaryn is an activist and TV show host working towards the liberation of black trans women. She was one of the leaders who organized with Black Lives Matter to demand justice in Ferguson, after the murder of Mike Brown. She has been featured in countless publications including, Mic, Buzzfeed, VerySmartBrothas, PBS First Person and much more..” #girlslikeus #girlboss #melanin #blackgirlmagic #blackpower

Thank you, @btrcp! I’ve decided to commission some of my favorite artist of color to reimagine me in place of some of my most beloved characters and images. This is for O-Ren Ishii! ❤️💅🏾 #blackartist #artistsoninstagram #girlslikeus #caricature #transisbeautiful #blacklivesmatter #blackpanther #wakanda

Thanks again, @astraeafndtn! Honored to have been invited to kick off your ‘Why We Fund’ series with powerhouse Katherine Acey. Dialogue means so much to me, and I love when people show up honest and ready to engage. Great talk, and great work putting this together, @zjlord! #girlslikeus #staytall #melanin #blackgirlmagic #transisbeautiful #justice #liberation #blackexcellence #blackpower #blackfuture
