Every minority group shares oppression and discrimination.

- We welcome any and all tweets about what media representation means to you.
- We welcome any and all tweets about real life discriminatory experiences and its intersection with media representation.

Art imitates life.
Life imitates art.
While we want this trend to be inclusive, we also want one major thing to be kept in mind.
This account started because OITNB killed Poussey Washington. They said they killed Poussey to teach white people a lesson about police brutality. We chose the imagery in our poster to underline the specific pain and fears that Black and Black LGBT people experience everyday of their life.
As a Black LGBT account, this trend will have tweets about police brutality, experiences with the police, experiences that are unique to us, what Poussey meant to us and why representation matters to us. Please keep this in mind as you tweet and support those who tweet about their experience.
