The magazine, which will be a 25 page spread, with a new page being added daily, is curated to support creatives globally to help them communicate and interact. It promises to be filled with art, expressions of love, and celebrations of women and queerness. Featuring Black women in all their glory, readers will enjoy Black women travel escapades, Black women inventors/innovators, and seeing Black women wining, winning and enjoying life.
When asked how this magazine came to life, Mmina describes her frustration with the red tape that comes with being a (misunderstood) young Black creative navigating the creative industry. Her frustration with being an African queer woman who doesn’t see enough of her representation, who doesn’t read enough conversations about the lives of African queer women.
Mmina, who is openly queer and polyamorous, has described this magazine as an outlet where she would write for Black creatives, especially the queer, and soon enough she will feature her story on her sexuality, and you don’t want to miss that.
When she says all creatives, she means all, the workshop is free but they do accept donations of P1 going up, allowing creatives of all backgrounds to be able to join, and these donations go towards funding the next creatives workshop.
The painter and art curator, has also taken to grooming local painters and taking their art work to international heights. A qualified photographer, she also offers her equipment, international contacts to film makers, photographers and whatever creative in need. Just yesterday she called for upcoming models, both male and female, to audition to be ambassadors for her gender fluid clothing collection. Talk about showing out for local creatives.
