For a sunkissed morning at the shop, we hosted "Sunkissed" aka Brown Papaya's magazine launch!



Isabel Bagsik (@unconventionalbliss) invited pinxys from all over the Bay Area to gather for a photoshoot series that would let us be proud of our roots, create a #womxnsupportingwomxn community, and embrace all of our shades of brownness thus creating Brown Papaya.


I was one of the pinxys featured! (You can read my interview here.)


Back to Sunkissed...


The event further exemplified Isabel's mission in empowering pinxys. It served as a mixer and reunion for those who took part in the photoshoot and those who supported it. Isabel also curated a panel of artists -- Cheryll, Tessie Mystic, and myself -- to discuss our experiences overcoming colonial standards and discovering our own pinxy-hood.
