"For some reason, as a young kid growing up, I always enjoyed being in tight spaces. This claustrophobic aspect of hiding in a closet was just strangely excited. I was terrified but also enjoyed that feeling. And just the idea that the world is frozen outside and you can’t go there and you’re all stuck inside this closed space, had this strange excitement about it."

androgynistic:

if ur gonna label one incorrect Bi person “Bi Tumblr” I’m just gonna go ahead and assume you’ve been looking for an excuse to demonise Bi people, especially when we congregate in groups, and were a Biphobe all along

why can we never celebrate the black history of an African country that isn’t Egypt. There’s always this focus on black people of Egypt or medieval Europe

Now when I was writing it I was writing it with the idea that Ellie is gay, and when the actresses were working they were definitely working with the idea that they’re both attracted to each other. That was the subtext and intention that they were playing with from the opening cinematic when they’re holding each other’s hands for too long, or when Riley bites her on the neck; there’s that chemistry there from the get go that was important for us so that we earned that moment when they kissed each other. So that it wasn’t just out of the blue but also wasn’t so overt that you’re like “Oh of course. Just get on with it.


[…]


It is a little strange when I read stuff like “Oh girls are just confused at that stage.” or “They’re still finding themselves.” You could spend your whole life finding yourself.


Again I think it’s weird because if Riley was a boy this debate wouldn’t be happening. No one would say “Oh maybe it’s just a friendly kiss.” No one would question that. I think even if it was two boys I don’t think anybody would question it.

"Writer of TV show is a lesbian"

Bi Tumblr: “this is erasure. How dare she not be bi. How dare the media report that she is a lesbian when she said she was a lesbian. How dare. How-“

People were either calling it out or reblogging people who called it out. Why would that one post represent the whole of bi tumblr?

VIDEO:Introducing French Afro-Cuban Twin Sisters Ibeyi & Their Yoruba Doom Soul

Ibeyi, made up of Cuban-born, Paris-based twin sisters Naomi and Lisa-Kaindé Díaz, is an electronic doom soul duo who are forging a new spiritual sound with their debut EP Oya. The 19-year-old musicians are XL Recordings‘ newest signees, and their introductory singles “Oya” and “River” possess a hypnotic blend of hip-hop, electronica, and blues infused with Yoruba prayers and folk songs that will transport you to a higher realm upon first listen.

Singing in French, English, Spanish and Yoruba, Ibeyi count among their primary influences Nina Simone, Meshell Ndegeocello, James Blake and their late father, the celebrated Cuban jazz percussionist Miguel “Anga” Diaz. Ibeyi’s vocal range, which wavers from the raspy and wraith-like to the sonorous and divine, is ideal for their sonic palette which revels in the phantasmagorical groove of liturgical Yoruba songs. Besides singing in Yoruba–which was brought to Cuba by West African slaves–Ibeyi honor their father’s legacy and Afro-Cuban heritage through their percussive production and use of live instruments. Beatsmith Naomi plays both the cajón and the batá while Lisa-Kaindé remains more in tune with the musical mythos of Ibeyi’s sound by weaving Yoruba lore deeply into their lyrics. “River” is dedicated to the goddess Oshun (the mother of the Ibeyi, and their first single and EP are both named for  Oya (the benevolent orisha who took the Ibeyi in after Oshun was accused of witchcraft for birthing twins and kicked them out).

From Soundcloud:

Another landmark Real World record from 1990, Exile informed the world of the struggles of Ugandan singer-songwriter Geoffrey Oryema. Exiled at a young age after the suspicious death of his government minister father, Geoffrey’s songs are a resilient riposte to a life forced upon him, as well as an unconfined celebration of the culture of his homeland. A statement of poise, gravity and elegance, Exile merges both the personal and the political, all narrated by that gently persuasive voice. Contributors include Peter Gabriel and Brian Eno.
“A quietly startling record, best heard way past midnight when a troubled world seems to offer no quarter” – Entertainment Weekly
