“Mental Illness is Real” Tonight on “Conversations Of A Sistah”


 Mental Illness is a very taboo topic in the Black Community and so many people who need help don’t know how to access it because of the exposure of its reality. The only way to remove the stigma associated with mental illness is to start conversations within our communities.

Some would argue that mental illness is not a real disease and, in fact, doesn’t exist at all. Each mental disease case has its own type of evidence and can eventually lead to suicide.

Jesus take the wheel, Jenner graces Vanity Fair in DRAG!


Jenner was photographed in drag by famed photog (and practicing lesbian) Annie Liebovitz for the cover of the June 9 issue.

Vanity Fair should be ashamed of themselves for exploiting mental illness for profit and financial gain. Wearing a wig, lingerie, and tucking your male parts does not make a man a woman.

As promised, Bruce Jenner has made her first appearance as a woman on the cover of Vanity Fair, which was photographed by Annie Leibovitz. In the cover shot, Jenner introduces herself: “Call me Caitlyn.”

In the accompanying story in the magazine’s July issue, Jenner talks to Buzz Bissinger, writer of the acclaimed Friday Night Lights, about why she decided to transition, noting the immense regret she would have felt had she lived her entire life without making a change. “If I was lying on my deathbed and I had kept this secret and never ever did anything about it, I would be lying there saying, ‘You just blew your entire life.?’”
