Monthly Roundup: June 2022

This month flew so fast! It’s crazy how much the time flies, but they say time flies when you’re having fun, and this past month, although busy at the beginning, has been fun towards the end.

We celebrated the Platinum Jubilee; we’ve celebrated and forever continue to celebrate the LGBTQIA+, Non-Binary & Trans Non-Binary communities and we celebrate everyone and everything as this world needs more inclusivity, diversity and love, and in the process of this month, I’ve managed to publish two photoshoots from last year, with six more in the pipeline left from 2021 which I’m eager to show to all of you!

Ending June on a positively high note, I shall take a quick look back at the photoshoots/reviews and photos I published.

1.6.2022 – This day marked the start of Pride month as everyone comes together to celebrate the LGBTQIA+, Non-Binary & Trans Non-Binary Communities, including all communities, and is the perfect reason to celebrate everyone and everything, so matter what sexuality you are, whether you conform to gender or not, and no matter what skin colour you are and how and the way you choose to identify, you’re forever loved for forever being you!

The website was given a complete makeover to celebrate Pride, and what better way to celebrate all communities by bringing love and light to the entire world.

2.6.2022 – The day was peaceful and warm; the feeling of happiness was in the air, and the scenery around Soho was remarkable!

To celebrate The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee, Soho is in high spirits celebrating Queen Elizabeth II’s 70 years since her ascension to the throne in 1952, with the Union Jack flags erected above the walkway alongside the Platinum Jubilee Celebration banners.

5.6.2022 – The next subject I photographed for the series, The Concept of Expression, was Hayley Jane Tarrant.

15.6.2022 – The next subject I’ve photographed for the series was Dwight Agyei.

20.6.2022 – What fascinates me about Soho is the vibrant scenery; the arches above Chinatown stand out with such power and grace that I cannot help but immerse myself in the beauty of the place!

23.6.2022 – Queen Bey is back and ready to amplify Summer with a bang as she released the first record, Break My Soul, off her highly-anticipated 7th studio album, Renaissance, which is out on the 29th of July!

What a month it has been! With Beyoncé returning with her new album, RENAISSANCE, on the 29th July, this summer is set to be the best Summer yet!

I’m so excited to see what this Summer will hold for all of us because even though it is the end of Pride Month, the celebrations continue as everyone will be celebrated and everything will be celebrated, and I know that for all of us, love, happiness, positivity, inclusivity and diversity will forever be the best way forward!

How was June for you? I cannot wait to hear from you!

Until then, I’ll see you all in July!

I love you all!
