Happy Leo Season
I got lost in your pale eyes
Not realizing the idea of loving me was more beautiful
Than the idea of you loving me
I got lost in the unsteady waters of Cancer
Little butterfly that I was
Gorgeous rose that you were
Courted by your velvet red petals
Yet stung by your deadly thorns
My fragile wings take me above
Into the Leo Sun
To dry your waters
Re-center my emotions inwards
Understanding they may be intense but still valid

That time Mayan warriors told me to to stand strong and proud like an African warrior. I tried... I guess.
Heads in the clouds, missing the Maya country.

For all the love you gave me, thank you.
Your name is inked on my heart.
Words can't convey.
Guadeloupe to Rwanda.
Africa to the Caribbeans.

Happy birthday to the soul that made me love me for the first time.

You and me. Against the world.

Today, we, Black Lives Matter Montreal and Black Lives Toronto marched united and strong in the streets of Montreal to denounce systemic racism in Quebec. We took over and shut down the Montreal Jazz Festival to remind everyone that Jazz is Black, that you cannot consume our music yet kill us, that we will not accept injustice, that we stand high and proud, that we will not accept being killed because of our magic melanin. Black people are here and we will organize and protest for justice because we want our brothers, our sisters and our children to LIVE in dignity.
I am so proud to be surrounded by an amazing team that will not comply to our racist state and its police brutality.
We mourn and will never forget our brother Pierre Coriolan, who was innocent, in psychological distress and yet was murdered by the police. Our lives are invaluable and we are tired ! Pierre Coriolan, say his name ! Rest in Power ✊🏾 #montreal #racism #blacklivesmatter #blacktranslivesmatter #resist #protest #policebrutality #melanin #melaninmagic #stopkillingus #dontshoot #resilience #fuckthepolice #disarmthepolice

Happy Black Pride ✊🏾 Overwhelmed for having met the most adorable and wonderful Queer People from East Africa.
Black People are beautiful.
Black Queer People are gorgeous.
Even happier to have celebrated Eid in the same time with my fellow Muslim Queer folks.

Graceful Grace Jones 💫

Happy Pride Month, remember Queer and Trans people of Colour are to be celebrated for giving us our modern "gay" rights.

[English to follow]

La société rwandaise pré-coloniale était divisée en clans qui étaient au départ des regroupements de familles politiques. L'appartenance à un clan se transmet encore aujourd'hui de père en fils. Je fais partie du clan des Basinga. Ce clan fait partie des premiers clans à s'être installé au Rwanda avant l'arrivée des clans régnants actuels. 9 des 12 premières Reines Mères du Royaume du Rwanda étaient du clan des Basinga avant que ce clan ne soit écarté du pouvoir lors du règne Ruganzu I Bwimba au 15ème siècle.
Chaque clan possède son totem et celui des Basinga est le milan noir, un oiseau de proie. Ce totem a été attribué au clan des Basinga à cause de leur réputation à aimer la viande.

Rwandan pre-colonial society was divided in clans, that had been in the beginning political alliances between families.
Membership to a clan is still transmitted from father to son today. I belong to the Basinga clan. This clan was one of the first clans to established themselves in Rwanda even before the arrival of the actual reigning clans. 9 of the first 12 Queen Mothers of the Kingdom of Rwanda were from the Basinga clan before this clan was descarded from ruling by then king Ruganzu I Bwimba in the 15th century.
Every clan had its own totem and the Basinga's is the black kyte, a bird of prey. This totem was appointed to the Basinga clan because of their reputation of being meat lovers.

That time bae took me out on a date to an organic restaurant. He's never able to look at me when his mouth is full 😏 👬

So I have been back in Montreal for a little bit more than 48 hours now and I can't stop thinking about Mexico and how blessed I am to have had the opportunity to visit that country. Flights going back home are always way more emotional for me.
We all have our routines that come with daily struggles and we all have our one ways to cope with that. I have come to realize that my way of coping, my therapy in a certain way is having a window view thousands of feet above ground, on my way to new places. I can only wish to travel even more and even further.
I will not forget the smiles and the heat of that magical land.
I come back with a lighter heart and so much more love.

Again I'm glad to say that I am already planning my next trip.
