Mmina Gaebonwe Launches Online Magazine

Apr 02, 2019, 04:50 PM

Multi-talented businesswoman and actress Mmina Gaebonwe has once again stunned us as she just launched an online magazine on her official website mminagaebonwe.com. The magazine, A Love Affair, is described as a love letter to all the artists, creatives and for the queer.

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.

This is not her first act of service to Batswana creatives, the Creative Ambassador for Botswana hosts the Art and Creatives Workshop, a yearly event where all creatives - bloggers, painters, film makers are invited to join in to showcase and participate in dialogue.

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 Maun born beauty is based in Paris, France yet still remains very much in touch with the local art and creative scene. Since being appointed as the Botswana Creative Ambassador, she has done much for local creatives. She has opened up her website, mminagaebonwe.com, to local fashion designers and painters to showcase and sell their work, on a global scale.

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.
 
Mmina Gaebonwe has been flying the Botswana flag high globally since being crowned the winner of the Gemstone Model search in 2009, being the first Motswana actress on Netflix when she appeared on Catching Feelings, and now a commissioned painter and art curator. We are looking forward to seeing more of her artistry.
