How does your city inform your practice?
London pushes me into uncomfortable spaces where I am getting to know myself. It allows for criticism and growth. It is bringing me to myself and my community.
How have the cloud communities helped you?
It enables me to have conversations with like-minded people that I have never been able to have before. It means that we can organise and unite. It brings power to our politics. It gives us a hand(s) to hold.
3 words to describe how you see yourself.
Never giving up.
3 words to describe how you believe the world sees you.
Young, gifted, black ;)
How do you determine success?
I only strive for happiness, it’s harder than I expected with a body like mine in a world like ours.
Tell us about a creative queer POC the world should be paying attention to.
