FACE FORWARD - Meet the Photographer Advocation for Black Beauty in the Fashion Industry: Glenford Nuñez
“You photograph what you see around and the things you care about,” Nuñez says. “My mom is a Black woman. My sister is a Black woman. These are the people I love, so I want them to be depicted in the best possible light.” He is on a mission to capture at least 100 aspiring Black models to affirm that our beauty — inside an out — is worthy of praise.

UNC made the admirable and inspiring decision to host a #betrue meet, celebrating LGBTQ athletes and promoting equality and acceptance. Resident Florida superstar Kennedy Baker is an avid supporter of LGBTQ rights but did not get to compete on floor exercise at the meets.
Let’s be real, this is how it would have looked anyway.
