It's been a minute since we heard from Princess Nokia , the artist who owned last summer with Metallic Butterfly , the genre-jumping mixtape that we're still streaming everyday on SoundCloud. Yesterday, she finally returned to the internet with a music video for her new song "Soul Train. The new video, which premiered on Dazed Digital , offers a carefree vision of young New Yorkers wearing 70s-inspired outfits and hairstyles, licking banana popsicles, and dancing in the streets. It's a nostalgic ode to the summer block parties of Destiny's youth and the Saturday mornings she spent learning how to do the hustle with her father. I caught up with Destiny at her brother's studio in the East Village a few days before she dropped the new video and I could tell that she felt she was on the brink of something big. I'm taking care of my body, my artistry, my life. She was telling the truth. This year she's been creating at a breakneck pace, playing shows all across the country, hosting her Smart Girls' Club radio show, and giving lectures at places like Harvard University and the New School. Not to mention, she's also been working on a brand new mixtape and three additional music videos that will drop later this summer.

Even the raspado man makes an appearance! Frasqueri has spoken at length about how integral feminism is to her art and her life, from making art specifically and explicitly about her indigenous Taino and Afro-descended womanhood to most recently at LatinoUSA. She has led national policy and movement building work on the intersections of immigrants' rights, health care access, young parenthood, and LGBTQ liberation, and has worked to increase access to contraception and abortion, fought for paid sick leave, and demanded access to safe public space for queer youth of color. She loves cooking, making art, listening to music, and thinking about the ways art forms traditionally seen as feminine are valued and devalued. In addition to writing for Feministing, she is currently spending most of her time doing policy work to reduce the harms of LGBTQ youth of color's interactions with the police and making sure abortion care is accessible to all regardless of their income.

And now, a final word: Send your query to askmormongirl gmail. Best wishes to those struggling with these big, life-altering decisions. I'm engaged to a junior intern and we're supposed to get married soon. I don't remember much of the breakup because it's been overshadowed by what happened to her afterwards. If you think your girlfriend's resistance to being exposed to anything critical of Mormonism sounds cult-like, you are right. If He can answer prayers to help you find missing car keys, He surely can help you understand who it is that you should marry. No doubt that some will be valiant up on the other side of the veil, but just as sure there will others who will reject salvation because of their high mindedness. You will buy expensive disability insurance, malpractice insurance, and life insurance to provide a snippet of comfort for the great, unknowable future.
