Seeing is deceiving, dreaming is believing,
It's okay not to be okay...
Sometimes it's hard to follow your heart.
Tears don't mean you're losing..."
This past Saturday was the highly anticipated Soweto Pride. The Pride is a parade for people of the LGBTI community, where everyone celebrates their sexuality and also commemorates the memories of those who have lost their lives simply because they were brave enough to be true to who they were and have been fighting for the rights of equality. To celebrate this the LGBTI community comes out at it majority to be together and be jolly.
If one has attended an event of this nature one would know that FASHION is the forefront of everything. After all gay men have been said to be the most stylish breed. How true is this? Well let's say you can always watch, learn and make your own verdict.
Here we see a dear mate of mine who goes by the name Tino Mathej. Personally I had a moment of feeling that this guy's style is a stab to my existence. I vividly remember the day he came to me so excited in August telling me what he plans to wear and I approved but little did I know how on point his execution will be. Here he's posing with a mate of his Vincent in a denim dungaree.
Then we have the outspoken Tshidi. A young man who asks for no permission to voice out his thoughts and might I add he's thoughts are sometimes not so popular but that doesn't faze him one bit. Here he's with a stylish lad named Shana Nkosi. They're both in time with one of this season's trend; rocking stripes of different dimensions. Its monochrome galore.
Well here you have it ladies and gentlemen my super rad tweeps at the Soweto Pride.
"Rejoice and love yourself today
'cause baby you were born this way"
