#BlackGaySlay is a collection of interviews (hosted by Leon Calvin Mack) inspired by the viral hashtag created by Mike Mason. We aim to highlight people of color in the LGBTQIA+ community who are dominating in their respective industries. 

The past few years have marked the rightful rise of the #BlackLivesMater movement and it is no secret that in addition to fighting to prove our value, as people of color, we are also in a constant fight for LGBTQ+ rights. So in light of these two posing issues we decided to start a special initiative, inspired by the viral hashtag #BlackGaySlay, to highlight & honor those who bear the struggles/beauties of both identities – – and most importantly, show that we are more than the labels we are given by society, so that our stories may be heard and accomplishments be rightfully celebrated.
