Two Brown Girls

A pop culture podcast by Fariha Roisin and Zeba Blay


I love getting to meet my favorite internet babes because 9/10 they’re even awesome-r in real life. afroxvx and I are literal soul sisters seperated by birth, and getting the chance to spend some time with her and her hilarious, cool ass bleedthepigs band mates, then getting to see them play an awesome set meant a lot to me. We even had a moment with one of her fans, who was really inspired — as am I — by seeing someone who looked like her, a black woman, in the scene being bad-ass leading a band and being completely unapologetic about it. It was great getting to see her in her element and having a chance to connect with her.

Literally all my favorite people in life I’ve met through the internet and after that night Kayla jumped to the top of that list lol 

I love you girl! <3 <3 <3

I’m writing for jezebelcom now, and my first post is on the relationship between the beauty industry and domestic violence. 

It’s been about a week or something since I wrote this and I’m still getting stories from survivors in my inbox, which I guess makes me feel less alone but mostly triggers me and makes me too sad to work sometimes. Thanks for reading though.
