DEAR AMERICA,

We have a perception problem...

And, we NEED to talk.

 

We've been asking you 3 important questions...

1. Who can represent the face of giftedness?

2. How will we know success when we see it?

3. What is the real definition of beauty?

 

But you didn't show us these...

 

I A M G I F T E D !

I A M B E A U T I F U L !

I A M S U C C E S S F U L !

 

Why are we ignoring the natural diversity right in front of us?

America..."this" perception we've settled for isn't working.

It's time for a NEW REALITY...

Time to CELEBRATE our diversity!

Unapologetically ready,

Why aren't we shown the INCREDIBLE

diversity that we already KNOW exists?

 
 

We are furthering the "conversation" with

images - correcting the narrative through

 authentic visuals and stories...

THE SPARK

"If we’re ever going to achieve progress, WE have to shift our mindset."

 

We’re tired of spending hours scouring the internet for images of people that look like “us” and barely finding them.

So, we’re calling you out, America! (American out,) That’s right, WE have to do better, we HAVE to step up and show the world the diversity that current stock photography is so sadly lacking.

If we’re ever going to achieve progress, WE have to shift our mindset.

And, we can’t do that UNTIL we’re willing to consider and embrace our differences.

See...we’re taking America – head on – changing the script one image, mission, life at a time. But, we can’t correct America’s flawed perception of diversity on our own. We need all hands on deck - starting TODAY!

 

 

THE FUEL

"If we let media define 'us', we’ll never see our true beauty"

 
 

We’re starting the “conversation” but Beautifully Taboo is YOUR platform because YOU - your authentic self - deserves to be celebrated.

It starts with you capturing what makes you beautifully taboo and sharing it with the world.

Submit your pictures, your stories - whatever you’re ready to share to help us shift our mindset from what we are shown is possible to what we know is possible.

Beautifully Taboo WILL BE the proof WE all need to remind ourselves that Gifted…. Successful…. Happy…. Healing…. Beautiful… Creative... already come in all shapes, sizes, colors, genders, creeds – you name it!

 

 

THE FIRE

“We’re taking back control and pausing to finally appreciate our realness.”

 

The Movement is OUR movement. We ARE beautiful, no matter the taboo categories that society has tried to place us under.

Starting today… we’re on a mission... and we need your help to redefine what America looks like and what WE will represent – now and into the future.

With your support, let’s make this spark grow into a fire that spreads across the country and revolutionizes how we see each other.

Let’s finally set the record straight that YOU CAN BE Gifted and Hispanic, Successful and Disabled, Beautiful and Disfigured…[insert your uniqueness here]

We’ll share our work AND your images with the world, so every designer in America, every Internet image search, and every website on the planet, will be able to fully represent exactly what giftedness, creativity, success, and beauty authentically look like.

That’s right… a 100% FREE platform with real images of real people bringing about a real change of perspective.

 

Change starts with us, right now - TODAY!

 

Have a story to tell?

We’ve been waiting to hear it (and see you). Submit your photo(s) to YourStory@BeautifullyTaboo.com and speak out! Let us know what makes you beautifully taboo and we’ll showcase your images on this site in their full glory. Let’s destroy these limiting stereotypes together!

Want to help?

We have big dreams and an even bigger mission! Any little bit for the cause can go a long way in spreading the word. Your money will be purposefully used to maintain this site and empower us to hit the road and capture our country’s beauty - one positively diverse photo at a time. 

 
i want in!
