Hot Stuff – Passage of the Equality Act
“LGBTQ youth deserve every equal right and protection as their peers, no matter where in this great nation they live. Today’s passage of the Equality Act is a monumental step toward bringing about those equal rights and protections. As we look toward the Senate and the eventual passage of landmark pieces of legislation like this, LGBTQ youth should know that the fight for their equality is moving swiftly forward toward a world where they will be free to be themselves.” -Sam Brinton, Head of Advocacy & Government Affairs, The Trevor Project
This is HOT
The wait is over! With over 2 billion streams of her music catalogue, GRAMMY Award-winning global superstar Ciara released her highly anticipated seventh studio album, Beauty Marks – which is already No. 1 in New Zealand. This album marks the first release via her newly formed label Beauty Marks Entertainment, in conjunction with her global distribution deal through ADA Worldwide. The project has already seen massive success with the first single from the project “Level Up” recently receiving Gold certification through the RIAA. The driving force behind this album was to inspire, inject love and make the world dance, Beauty Marks flawlessly accomplishes all three with songs that capture the human spirit’s range and diversity.
“My mantra throughout the process of recording this album was about reminding myself that the scars you get from going through life are actually your beauty marks. Adversity ends up giving you wisdom and character, and persevering through all those challenges makes you so much stronger,” said Ciara. “This album is about celebrating the journey that leads you to those Beauty Mark moments.”
