Poet Crystal Valentine sits down with StyleLikeU and opens up about her journey to Self Love. Crystal talks about her sexuality, not conforming to society’s norms and how performing her poetry helped her to find a sense of belonging.
“To be in a world filled with people who hate you for being black, for being women, for being queer, for loving yourself, for not caring about their opinions — and to say that ‘I don’t care. I still love myself,’ that is so empowering, and that itself is activism.”
*The interview was filmed back in in 2016 and previously hosted exclusively on Fullscreen’s subscription platform. StyleLikeU has decided to re-release eight episodes of The What’s Underneath Project on their YouTube channel, free and accessible to all.*
