What were you doing before prom? Chances are, not dishing advice for Rookie magazine, à la Amandla Stenberg. Declaring "I cannot separate my gender, from my race, from my sexuality" — perhaps her guiding ethos — the activist shared her wisdom with the internet in a new advice video. Stenberg covers a range of topics, from natural hair haters ("all of the preconceived, internalized messages that I've been fed since birth that have told me my hair isn't beautiful") to pansexuality ("it's easier to say I'm bi"). Watch the video in full below.
