2021.6.6 Sunday Reading List

Sunday, June 6, 2021


Sunday Reading List has been on a bit of a hiatus as I've been adjusting to the world reopening and relearning what weekends can look like outside of the house! Hope everyone has a safe and joy-filled week.

How Lil Nas X Is Reclaiming Queerness to Proclaim His Own Blessedness (Harper's Bazaar): Reverend Jacqui Lewis discusses the power in Lil Nas X's art, the more subtle imagery in his video, and a call to action for the church in supporting our LGBTQIA+ congregations.

Microaggressions at the office can make remote work even more appealing (Washington Post): While microaggressions in the workplace didn't disappear with remote work, they got a lot better. There is a lot to unpack here, mandatory reading. 

Post-pandemic fashion trends (Axios): I read these trends thinking oh it's not just me! (anyone else going on 12+ months since putting on zipper pants?)

Unable to resist the urge to wave at the end of Zoom calls? You're not alone (NBC News): The psychology behind the irresistable Zoom wave and what makes it so darn awkward (👋🏼)

A Year After George Floyd's Death, Brand DEI Commitments Are Due (AdWeek): Leaders, what actions have you taken? How are you still supporting your employees of color? 

The State of Ohio vs. a sex trafficked teenager (Washington Post): The system treats sex-trafficked Black teenagers as child prostitutes. This is one teen's story.

NFL pledges to halt ‘race-norming,’ review Black claims (AP): The NFL's use of 'race norming' assumed Black players started with lower cognitive abilities than their non-Black counterparts, which prevented many Black players from receiving compensation for brain injury. This practice is ending- in 2021. There is so much work to be done.

Virtual brands and ghost kitchens (The Verge): Expedited by the pandemic, virtual brands have taken over. You sure those wings from UberEats are from a local brand or is it the Chuck E. Cheese brand that exploded in COVID?
