Beyoncé’s Renaissance is a celebration of queer Black joy by the biggest pop star in the world. O’Shae Sibley was living without restraints and should still be alive to celebrate all that made him great and inspired others to live their truth. https://t.co/0dIyNbxZMU

A Black gay man was killed over an “altercation” because a straight man wanted him to stop voguing.
He was killed.
Over him voguing.
Black queer joy is under attack, not masculinity.
Rest in Peace, O’Shae Sibley. 🖤🙏🏾
