Closing out the last night of 30 Days in Chicago, Migos & Lil Yachty did not let the Red Bull Sound Select’s crowd down. #30DaysinChicago was a wild month and the sold out show at The Riviera Theatre was no exception.

As a young queer woman growing up in South Dakota, my sexuality was more a cause for fear than pride. When word got around my middle school, I was told by faculty that I would stop “this behavior” or find another school. I was silenced, so I turned to poetry and prose. Writing was my way to express myself. On paper, there was no reason to fear, and that gave me courage in my real life.
Today, poetry has grown especially among the queer community, as well as among young people of color. Not only is it a form of self expression, but it has become a platform for people to start important and uncomfortable conversations. Topics such as racism, homophobia, sexism, sexual assault, to name a few. Those who are oppressed are often persecuted and shamed for their anger.
Nestled in at Sherman Oaks, KIDinaKORNER Kampus had a massive art and fashion Sunday mARTket. It was the first of many markets about to happen via YesJulz’ 1am Creative. Hundreds of people chilled by the pool, sipped on boozy lemonade, picked up some new threads while enjoying their Sunday.
The top LA fashion and art vendors were there such as Made, Nothing Crazy At All, Left Hand, Lace by Tanya, Pink Baby, 730t, Schwann, & From Gray Scale. Tony Camaro, the pop-artist gave out free doodles, joints were flowing thanks to Chronciere & 1am DJ Mia Carrucci played all your favorite Sunday jams all put on by YesJulz herself. Be sure to come through to the next one at Art Basel & Cali. Issa vibe!
