Tanzania bans lube because it “promotes homosexuality”

Dar es Salaam’s regional commissioner Paul Makonda (Photo: Wikimedia Commons) Non-profit organization Human Rights Watch yesterday released a report on a crackdown against the LGBTQ community in Tanzania. Although same-sex sexual relations are outlawed in the East African country, locals say the situation took a turn for the worse in 2016 following the election of President John Magufuli. Since then, not only has there been an increase in the harassment of suspected gay people in the country,...

Annie Lennox Is Done Walking On Broken Glass

"An activist is about being an impatient person, with a lot of patience," Annie Lennox tells me over the phone. She sounds pleased at the end of the sentence, letting out a two syllable laugh – "ah ha" – because it’s such a good sentence. Of course it is, it’s Annie Lennox, widely regarded as one of the best songwriters of all time, winner of six Brit awards for Best Female Artist, four Grammys, and an Oscar for Best Song.Though our conversation is primarily about Lennox's NGO, The Circle, whic...

Freddie Mercury’s complex relationship with Zanzibar

With the release of a new film about the British rock band Queen, the spotlight has fallen again on the life of its legendary lead singer, Freddie Mercury. His flamboyant stage presence, outlandish costumes, memorable hits, fluid sexuality, and death from an Aids-related illness at just 45 are defining memories of the British rock scene of the 1970s and 1980s. Less well-known – and barely mentioned in the film – is that he was born in the Tanzanian archipelago of Zanzibar to a family whose roo...

Where To Find The Coolest African Designers Online

Fashion has a diversity problem. Virgil Abloh, Louis Vuitton's menswear designer, is only the third Black man to hold a leading position at a major French house.

While progress is being made – there's been a 2.3% increase in model diversity at fashion month since last year – there's still a long way to go.One brand looking to spotlight less...

How Burt's Bees Makes 500 Lip Balms Per Minute

Burt's Bees has been built on the platform of a single humble ingredient: honey. Today, countless other beauty brands have gotten sticky with it, adding the sweet stuff to masks, moisturizers, and lip treatments for a hit of naturally-derived (and, yes, decidedly non-vegan) moisture. But we never forget the OG beekeeper, good ol' Burt. That time-honored brand loyalty is why we grab a tube of Burt's Bees lip balm every time we find ourselves standing in a checkout line, desperately in need of ...

The Amazing Slow Fashion Labels from Berlin

Berlin is not only known for cultivating a tolerant, progressive, queer, feminist and anti-racist culture, it has also become a hub of conscious and sustainable living. It promotes a low-waste, vegan and fair art of living, that we would love to elaborate on today. In the past couple of years, the eco-fashion industry grew some deep roots here and further evolved into cool looking products, that express a choice of living consciously (but still fashionable). There are quite a few progressive...

13 Spellbinding Portraits of People With Albinism

After seeing images of Shaun Ross, a model with albinism, New York-based photographer Angelina d'Auguste was instantly inspired. For her senior thesis project at the Fashion Institute of Technology, she decided to spotlight people living with this genetic condition. According to the National Organization For Albinism and Hypopigmentation, approximately one in 18,000 are affected by albinism, meaning their hair, skin, and/or eyes lack melanin, the pigment that creates color. Because of their ethe...

The Big Cats of the Serengeti

The four days I spent in the Serengeti were full of incredible experiences. One of the things you always dream about is the opportunity to spend time with big cats. From shy Cheetahs to Lazy Lions or the ever elusive Leopard, there’s something captivating about the alpha predators of Africa. At the outset of my safari I hoped I’d spot, perhaps, one or two large male lions and a leopard or two. A cheetah or two if I was lucky and a pride of females with cubs. Little did I know what the Serengeti ...

A Primer on the Manly Tradition of Tea

Editor’s note: This is a guest post from Tim Ludy.  “There are those who love to get dirty and fix things. They drink coffee at dawn, beer after work. And those who stay clean, just appreciate things. At breakfast they have milk and juice at night. There are those who do both, they drink tea.” –Gary Snyder When you think of tea parties, you’re probably getting an image of a group of women sitting around a table drinking out of delicate tea cups while eating fancy cookies. There’s probably a do...

15 Unforgettable Trips To Plan In 2017

The World's First Albinism Beauty Pageant Proves Being Unique Is Gorgeous

It's no secret: people with the genetic trait of albinism have been mistreated for centuries. Because of their fair skin, blond hair, and light eyes, they have been seen as mythical people around the world. However, those with albinism are especially at risk for being maligned - or even murdered - in Africa. According to The Daily Maverick, many were forced to flee Tanzania last year after an increase in ritual killings. This is because witch doctors hunt down people with this genetic condition,...

Denied Birth Control, Teens Still Have Sex — Unsafe Sex

Illustrated By Anna Sudit. Kenyan-born and Tanzania-based sexual health educator Maureen Oduor knows that soda doesn’t prevent pregnancy, but not all of the young women she counsels do. "In Kenya, adolescents believe that drinking a glass of Coca-Cola soda before and after sex can prevent a girl from getting pregnant," she tells me. In Tanzania, meanwhile, "people believe that use of contraceptives by a woman who has never had a child causes a woman to be barren ...
