Can Twerking Be an Expression of Power? ...

A Black queer lawmaker posted a video on social media of herself twerking in a bikini. In response to the maelstrom of criticism, she’s reclaiming her bodily autonomy and pushing back with a new campaign. “They never cared about my body when I was fighting as a Black queer person to have my rights respected by my legislators. No one cared about my body—not until it was twerking upside down. I live with joy, authenticity, and liberation. They cannot control our bodies. And they can’t stop our joy.”
