“My mother was the most beautiful woman I had ever seen. She was also the most dangerous”
White Oleander (2002)
Night time at the hotel, there was fighting in the hall
Thin chain lock to keep the world out, she held her breath till it was gone
Standing naked in front of that hotel bathroom mirror,
In her dysphoria’s reflection, she still saw her mother’s son.
"It was exciting and just a major, major compliment…I was happy for all the girls who would see me on [it] and feel a little more seen." - Lupita Nyong’o on being named People Magazine’s Most Beautiful
