Prove It On Me

"Pough agrees that we should feel positive about this generation of high profile r&b and rap women who are supportive of each and contribute, whoever precariously, to bringing sapphic visibility to the pop mainstream".

My first ever feature for Diva magazine came out today! I wrote about sapphic disruptions in the *still* very much heterocentric pop world, with a specific focus on mainstream r&b/rap pop laydeez Rihanna, Jessie J and Nicki Minaj, and nods to Ma Rainey and Bessie Smith - the original rowdy dyke mamas. Gwendolyn D. Pough (author of Check It While I Wreck It) lent her very expert voice to the piece too. Proudface.
