Sylvia Rivera: Remembering A Queer Heroby ArenaCommerce Collaborator
Every Pride it seems we’re getting better and better at acknowledging the Stonewall riots’ roll in the gay liberation movement, and how we literally would not have a Pride march today without it.

This past week, social media has been filled with images and posts of Nipsey Hussle, the Grammy-nominated rapper who was shot dead outside his Los Angeles clothing store.

Clout Does Not Make You a Feministby ArenaCommerce Collaborator
Trump and Slumflower What do Trump and the Slumflower have in common? Due to the platforms they hold, they have become poster children for social issues that far exceed their understanding.

Slut-shaming Is The Scariest Thing About Halloweenby ArenaCommerce Collaborator
Halloween is, without a doubt, my favourite time of year. As an October baby, I would have Halloween-themed fancy dress parties; my classmates dressed as toilet-paper-mummies or slick vampires- hair gelled harshly to their heads. I think that’s probably my favourite part of Halloween – the costumes. Every year there is a reigning King or […]

Magufuli against birth control?by ArenaCommerce Collaborator
Tanzania’s president John Magufuli has come under recent criticism for telling women in East Africa, ‘don’t use birth control’. The 58-year-old’s reasons for the outrageous comments are, that somehow, in family planning, women will become ‘lazy’ in not having a large family to ‘work hard’ for. Interestingly, Magufuli makes no mention of men or their […]
