#lineofduty reunion and celebration last night - the best times with my mate @vicky.mcclure XT

Our hearts go out to the families involved in today's and all current man-made tragedies going on right now in our world. KayX ▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️
"To be hopeful in bad times is not just foolishly romantic. It is based on the fact that human history is a history not only of cruelty, but also of compassion, sacrifice, courage, kindness.
What we choose to emphasize in this complex history will determine our lives. If we see only the worst, it destroys our capacity to do something. If we remember those times and places—and there are so many—where people have behaved magnificently, this gives us the energy to act, and at least the possibility of sending this spinning top of a world in a different direction.
And if we do act, in however small a way, we don’t have to wait for some grand utopian future. The future is an infinite succession of presents, and to live now as we think human beings should live, in defiance of all that is bad around us, is itself a marvelous victory."

Thank you @hetafell of @stancepodcast and Team ThandieKay @tadiwazara and @charliesiddick. Discussing colourism then concepts of motherhood, women and porn, listening to successful female entrepreneurs about 'how they do it', cocktails in the sunshine, then dinner-what a fantastic way to spend a Sunday!

Bumped into the fabulous @tahminaxbegum editor in chief of @xxymagazine as well as lovely @melissa.hemsley and Thalia of @sheerchemistry at the Ace Hotel Shoreditch, clearly a great place to spend Sunday afternoons! KX

"it is far easier to resent one’s own skin for giving you advantages you haven’t earned than despising it for what it takes away." Elizabeth Pears discussing the privilege she experienced being mixed, and the resentment she felt as she became aware of colourism. "I didn't want preferential treatment because of something as superficial as skin colour or hair texture. My mother, the first woman I ever knew, loved and admired, was a dark-skinned black woman and, to me, the epitome of beauty and glamour. What was the big deal?" for The New Statesman, 2013
According to the World Health Organisation (WHO), 77 per cent of Nigerian women use lightening creams. In India – home to a third of the world’s poorest people – two thirds of all skin products contain lightening agents. For some, lighter skin is seen as a route out of poverty, creating opportunities to cheat a system engineered to oppress. It South Africa, it is the difference between being black and part of the ‘coloured’ middle class. ▫️
I'll be discussing colourism with @hetafell, Chrystal Genesis of @stancepodcast and Dr Aisha Phoenix of SOAS for the @ripostemagazine panel at the Ace Hotel tomorrow morning. #colourism KayX

"There needs to be the destruction of certain types of stereotypes that young women of colour face, because we're the new wave. We're shaping the future." @AmandlaStenberg ▫️▫️▫️
I will be discussing colourism with Chrystal Genesis, @hetafell of @stancepodcast and Dr Aisha Phoenix of SOAS with @ripostemagazine tomorrow at the Ace Hotel Shoreditch, tickets are sold out but you'll be able to get the podcast.✨ KayX

NEW POST on thandiekay.com @rosemiyonga interviews founder of @typicalgirlsmag AND new Features editor of thandiekay.com @jamilaprowse "Typical Girls is part of a growing movement of zines by and for a diversity of women who aren’t interested in waiting to be given a voice by the mainstream media.
It is a space for self-expression and sharing of the female experience, which ultimately demonstrates that there is no one way to be a self-identifying woman...."

"My skin isn’t ‘specialist’ skin, I shouldn’t need a referral to buy foundation – the comfort of high street stores is that they meet your needs and include everyone. Let’s make that happen. Let’s meet on the high street." Throwing back to a piece Thandie wrote for thandiekay.com in 2014, 'Boots, A Love Story'. Link is on our twitter feed (@Thandie_Kay ) now. ps OUTFIT GOALS😜 #SindySlays KayX
