The PRIDE Issue got us “In Our Feelings” and we’re still trying to figure out if KiKi loves us… 

TUV Pride issue is filled with inspiring stories about the world around us. Be Proud, Live Loud, & Lovley and enjoy these uplifiting stories. On the cover of the 2018 Pride Issue is the “Coolots Band” whose mantra is “We are not here to fit in.

The CooLots are intersectionality personified. The Washington, D.C.-based band embodies a sound that the RAW community describes as a “melting pot of different styles and talents [that] come together to create feelings never experienced before.” The talented individuals that form this eclectic band each carry a style all their own; however, they come together to form a synergetic group that appeals to the eccentric in us all.

The Coolots “refuse to be bound by industry standards and societal expectations; rather, they use their platform to inspire personal evolution and growth. They are here to indulge the hip grinders, the lyrically inclined, the head bangers, and the soul sisters.”
