From The Sound Mind by Floyd Smith (author's profile)



19 videos of groundbreaking Liberating Facts Articles, Short Stories, and Songs written by an array of journalist, activist, and writers, from a young black Same Gender Loving (SGL) persons perspective, complete with Free Type Beats, makes for a great share to the Parallaxboi or Parallaxgurl in your life, at your school, or workplace, from Africa to the innercity streets of America, social distance learning can now include the most underserved demographic of the population wherever you are right now, especially in these global trying times. If it is true that we are all in this together, we should be involved in helping each other get through this together, especially on birthdays and special observation days, this video zine playlist is the ultimate gift to share with those that require love and care in their own safe space.

The Backstory:

Two years ago, Danny Boy said, "What, if anything, you needed to see or hear as a young gay black boy growing up in the hood that would give you power over suicidal thoughts, endless tears, always fighting, running away from home, and low self esteem?"
Everything that I said in my very extended response to Daniel's question was produced into s19 videos, and I recently was able to view a few of those videos and realized that somewhere in the world, another version of my younger self needs to not only see this vZINE, but also require themselves to share it to someone's social media, or iphone or ipad or gadget as a gift, a study, or empowering conversations, research, and debate. When I told Daniel that I was so proud of this playlist, he simply said, "Yeah, think I need it more."

This is really cool! Good luck on your vZINE!
The url originally written down wasn't 20044 but 2oc44, so I fixed it and now it should properly go to the playlist.
