ACTIVISM GONE WRONG! - STOP BOYCOTTING PEOPLE OF YOUR OWN

According to Wikipedia an LGBTI prideis the positive stance against discrimination and violence towardlesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT)people to promote theirself-affirmation, dignity, equality rights, increase their visibility as asocial group, build community, and celebrate sexual diversity andgender variance. Pride, as opposed to shame andsocial stigma, is the predominant outlook that bolsters mostLGBT rightsmovements throughout the world. Pride has lent its name to LGBT-themed organizations, institutes, foundations, book titles, periodicals and even acable TV stationand thePride Library and it goes on... 

I remember when I first attended my first Pride in Cape Town in March 2011 with a group from Durban Lesbian & Gay Centre, it was amazing! I had so much fun! 
In October 2012 I attended my first JoBurg Pride in Zoo Lake (now known as Johannesburg Pride hosted in Sandton). I remember on this day I met so many people who you could not tell their background, status and…

My comments are based on what I saw and what the picture looks like, the aim is for the "victim" to improve, no hate... We learn something new everyday, all a room for improvement xxx.

This is NOT allowed, she watches too much fashion magazines I think and still get it wrong!
FIERCE & Flawless! She could have been the official make-up artist for the night to save us from torture! 
She was probably going to a shopping mall on a date with a clutch bag, she looked beautiful though, Love her! 
 I'm still trying to figure out if the pink chick bones are because of too much smile or she took advantage of the blush, angazi! Such a beautiful girl :-( 
I don't want to seem bias, please caption this for me. All I can say is FIRE!

HEAVY MAKE-UP & FALLING BOOBS AT THE GLAMOROUS MISS BLACK PRIDE 2014

Image
On the 27th of September 2014 we headed to Club Simply Blue on 36 Roger Street, Sebly, Johannesburg for the most anticipated pageant of the year Miss Black Pride 2014.

Miss Black Pride 2014 winners 
Club Simply Blue is known for staging some of the best pageants in Johannesburg, South Africa, most of them that sees drag queens and transwomen battle for the tittle up for grabs. 

This time around it was no much of a difference besides falling boobs, heavy make up and some contestants looking like they just walked out of Bhara Hospital in Soweto! I mean, I was so disturbed seeing such and surely I was not the only one. 

Despite the perfect setting by the organizers and out of this world performances, some contestants had to make the pageant look like it a soup kitchen entertainment show from Emalahleni! 

While watching the pageant I was so certain that only two would have made the cut at the Miss Gay Jozi 2014 that was held early this year at Wits Theatre by Club Simply Blue

This multi-talented beauty follows in the footsteps of some very strong, stylish woman, but is more than up for the honour of hosting her own range, and is going to introduce a very distinct fusion of cultural references to her signature looks.

There is no doubt that ANN7 South African Of The Year Awards were the best we have ever had in the country. From the production, performances, MC, setting etc. The stage was probably the biggest any award ceremony ever had in SA and beautiful! 

The guests attended the event were who's who of the industry, even the business people you hardly see at events were in attendance.

Here are some of the pictures from the awards held at Sandton Convention Centre on the 6th of September 2014.
