  • Understanding gentrification in London
    Understanding gentrification in LondonOrganic vegan coffee shops, flashy flats and the infamous image of the hipster young professional: In the last decade, East london and gentrification have seemingly become synonymous.

  • National Student Pride: Drag Queens & Racism
    National Student Pride: Drag Queens & RacismPerformers Sum-Ting-Wong and Tia Kofi have opened up about the kind of racist language they face while performing at LGBT+ bars in the UK.

  • National Student Pride: Vouging
    National Student Pride: Vouging'How to vogue better than Madonna in 3 minutes (and it's queer history) We teach you how to dip, how to 'death drop' as it's referred to, how to duck walk and how to vogue – better than Madonna could ever try. Though she popularized the dance form with her song, many in the queer PoC community believe she appropriated the dance form with her hit song.' On this project, I worked as a primary camera operator.
