Bringing you closer to the people and things you love. ❤️
For creator Arooj Aftab (@vogue_wonders), authenticity is everything. “Please always be yourself,” says the 23-year-old. “You have your own message, your own story and your own goals, so please do it YOUR way with your authentic voice.”⁣

“Oversized fits and menswear are what I’m about. It’s how I’m able to feel confident within myself whilst dealing with my neurofibromatosis (a genetic condition that causes tumors to grow along nerves). I want to show the community that having a condition, illness or disability does not define you and your capabilities.”⁣

Meet Harper Watters (@theharperwatters). He’s a professional dancer and advocate for the LGBTQ community who is using his platform to stand up to bullies — often, in a great pair of heels.⁣
⚡️👠⚡️⁣
“I am a professional soloist classical ballet dancer who is African-American and queer, dancing in Texas, and I’m doing it really well,” says Harper. “And to the bullies who said I was feminine, you’re right! I embrace my feminine side. I embrace my masculine side. I embrace everything that makes me Harper.”⁣
⁣
For National Bullying Prevention Month, we partnered with Teen Vogue (@teenvogue) to share stories and support amazing #Advocates who are taking a stand against bullying and making a positive global impact. We’re sharing Harper’s story on #SpiritDay, an annual day of awareness dedicated to standing with LGBTQ youth who disproportionately face bullying and harassment because of their identities.

“It’s not a great feeling to feel helpless, so that’s why I stand up for people who do,” says professional ballet soloist Harper Watters. “The bully has been and probably will continue to be my biggest hurdle. But I’m a dancer, honey, so I’m gonna jump over.”⁣

“My love for self-portraits began as a way of me being able to tell a story with the endless versions of myself,” says makeup artist and model Frances O’Sullivan (@beautyspock), who’s inspired by old Hollywood starlets and glamorous women of the past. “Experimenting with fantasy is what I really love.”⁣

“My mission is to celebrate the richness and diversity of cultures within the African diaspora,” says artist Adeyemi Adegbesan (@yung.yemi), who designed a face filter for Afropunk (@afropunk) this year.⁣
⁣
“Going all the way back to my childhood, my own personal journey of trying to find out more about my Nigerian heritage has always been a source of inspiration for me and that just spread to an interest in other African cultures and histories, and wanting to know more about black culture around the world,” says Adeyemi, who lives in Canada. “When you look at my work, it’s kind of like a synthesis of all of the things that I’m learning and being inspired by.” #ShareBlackStories⁣
