And now for our feature presentation
Queer Black in America (QBA)
Queer Black in America (QBA), is a spin-off of Queer Black in Seattle (QBS), created by Sonorra “Street” McMath, author of My Mom’s a Stud. The series was not well received by Queer Black Seattleites, so Sonorra expanded her options to include all Queer Black Americans, with intentions to cross International waters, thereby creating Queer Black around the World (QBW).
QBA is recorded on location, the footage is then sent to Street for editing and producing. The person(s) of interest is/are directed via social media and electronic technology. A camera is assigned; sometimes the person of interest is aware of the focus for the day and sometimes only the camera knows, and the rest, as they say, is history.
We want to show the world what it takes to climb the top without the celebrity support/status. Nobody gives you anything; you earn it or take it. Join us bi-weekly as we highlight/spotlight the life of an aspiring celebrity in the Queer Black community. In between episodes, we’ll share news and information about mainstream media. If you are interested in becoming a QBA person of interest, contact Street at email@example.com. Until then, sit back, laugh, cry, stomp, and jam with ENVI BABI V.O.F.
In this episode ENVI BABI V.O.F. addresses relationships and entertainment, her goals, “the closet” and other important issues identified within LGBTQ communities and entertainment. She’s attractive, funny, determined, and “Black”. Do you think ENVI BABI V.O.F. has what it takes to complete a season of QBA? Do you think she represents the community? What else to you want to see or know about our person of interest? Whatever it is, you’ll have to log in and share in the comments section. We’ll leave the light on for you.
ENVI BABI V.O.F.
ENVI BABI V.O.F. (Voice of Freedom) AKA Tameka Wesley is currently #4 on the Indie top 50 volume 447 and ranked #2 on Reverbnation.com. A former artist at Population Ent., ENVI BABI V.O.F. found her new home at Potent Music Group in 2012. ENVI BABI V.O.F. has been featured in Independent Artist magazine and is currently developing a clothing line with Urban Lyfe. ENVI BABI V.O.F. is also the founder of the LGBT Music Movement.
“BOLD & BEAUTIFUL”, ENVI BABI V.O.F. refuses to accept “NO!” for an answer; there are aspirations of becoming “one of the best female lyricists the world will hear,” and the first open lesbian artist recognized internationally. Don’t confuse this with an artist who first becomes internationally known and then comes out of the closet. Closets are for clothes and there is no room in the closet for ENVI BABI V.O.F.
Born and raised in Shreveport, Louisiana, ENVI BABI V.O.F. wrote and produced her first song “Ta Dumb” and has been going strong ever since. She attributes her love for music to all genres and MCs of the 80s and early 90s. She has a strong passion for music, poetry, rap, art, and basketball. In 2000, ENVI BABI V.O.F. experienced a series of tragic, sudden deaths of key family members. She found strength in basketball and poetry, and now she is here to take over the music industry.
ENVI BABI V.O.F. admits she has concerns that her open, alternative lifestyle might impact her ability to thrive in a heterosexual, male dominated society; however, she continues to embrace her “masculine stature.” She intends to “speak up and out for those who are imprisoned by their own fears, and inspire others to love the skin you’re in & to never be afraid to go for their dreams.” ENVI BABI V.O.F. has a dream, “to see my story on the screen” and in a book. She sees herself as an inspiration for all. She says, “If I can make it, anybody can”.
