As anyone in Miami-Dade County on Friday September 8th, 2017 can attest, we were all utterly terrified, and remarkably humbled, at the wrath of an angry God. But not the God of ancient man who rains hell fire and brimstone over an unfaithful humanity; an angry God of our own creation. One whose bloodlust is…

Those who can, teach

By: Zalykha María Mokim Writer Do you remember that episode of “Girls” where Lena Dunham becomes a teacher?

#BreakTheStigma

Welcome or welcome back MyXXFam! Today on the blog we’re coming to you live from Tropical Park in Miami, FL, with a photo-set that never would have seen the light of day if it wasn’t for the fact that May is Mental Health Awareness Month, and on this very day, I was deeply entrenched in my…

Political Horrorscope

This week on MyXXFLY we’re channeling spiritual guru Walter Mercado! The garments and accessories featured in this post are some of my absolute favorite thrift finds. (I mean, how the fuck else would I have acquired a velvet cape straight out of Ms. Patty‘s closet, and a sequined matador-worthy jacket, if not at a thrift store?) With these…

Art (R)Evolution

  Art: the expression or application of human creative skill and imagination… producing works to be appreciated primarily for their beauty or emotional power. Even the Oxford English Dictionary definition of art is word porn ain’t it? Art in modern times is often delegated to the realm of expertly curated museums and studios, and while these places are replete…

New Baby Smell
