gal-dem: bbz, the duo repping queer women of colour

By Yero Timi-Biu, 4th May 2016
Yero is still on so much of a high after last month’s art exhibition and dance, BBZ at Buster Mantis, she decided to interview both founders about why they wanted to create a space celebrating women of colour of all spectrums.
“BBZ is the kind of night where you can expect to experience art, good conversation and hear those tunes you always wish got played in the rave instead of your bedroom. The kind of night lead by cis, trans, queer AND/OR genderqueer/non-binary women of colour but open to anyone who is open. The exhibition element of the night is there to immerse every guest into the thoughts and experiences of those very people and incite a level of respect and compassion for those around them.”
Photographer and fashion producer, Tia Simon-Campbell and filmmaker Nadine Davis are the dynamic brains behind BBZ (Babes). Nadine and Tia are both creative partners, but they’re the kind of duo you can tell are also close friends. After initially meeting on the set of a “dire first year film in the form of a Cheryl Dunye-esque music video directed by Nadine that will never see the light of day”, they became good friends.
