Storm preparation always takes me back to mama Mississippi. I have learned to float and glide but I still don’t know how to swim. There’s a great trust and acceptance here. Having a relationship with an entity I cannot manipulate or influence, challenges my tendency to seek control and expands my prayer life into action based with less formality. There’s only two options in this season. Brace oneself or get out the way. Both require haste. Both can be nerve wrecking but if we breathe deeply there is peace within each choice. I’m bracing myself this go round with my sun. A gentle loneliness lives near but not too far away from hope and adventure. Take great care of your cells New Orleans. 📸 @_awesomelyawkward @ej.mccartney
Tonight in New Orleans ar The Starlight 10pm. Sirens unite
Flags are really hard for me. Emblems for countries or institutions usually come with an allegiance and expectation that troubles my sense of self. But in terms of identifying safe space to be unapologetically free with gender and sexual identity. I am most certainly a rainbow bright. I’ve gone through various labels that were self imposed and a few horrific ones within the lgbtq community that I’ve done quite a bit of healing around. I’m grateful that the acronym has expanded and become more inclusive and I’m also grateful to be at a place where I no longer feel confined by identifying myself ( which has been quite the chore over the last decade). I was “outed”by a “mentor” who needed to justify why I didn’t compromise my integrity to get farther along in the industry. I was a secret to partners I purely cherished. But I personally never had the unimaginable task to fight for visibility or respect because of where I fall on the spectrum and was never truly faced with my loved ones denying me for who I chose to love or simply like. So wherever my feet are planted on any platform consider my arms a place of affirmation and reprieve in a very strange land of intolerance and judgement. I pledge allegiance to Mykia. To be my authentic self at all cost. To love fiercely and courageously. To treat all huemans with dignity and respect. Let’s turn up on this last day but stay you all year long. I’ll be at Blue Nile in New Orleans tonight 7:30-10pm Happy Pride
