“I think one the most important illustrations we can see is us loving us,” she said. “There are people that don’t want to see that. And sadly, we know that sometimes a few our own can’t even see that because how they grew up, being taught something different. As if we are less and that there are others that are superior… I hope we exemplify how worthy each us are being loved. I hope we exemplify how hard we can love one another. In a healthy way.”
Ryan Destiny and Keith Powers went viral this week after posting their fly *ss We The Urban cover and photoshoot. The longtime couple were just too cute in the shots, making it clear they are very much in love. Inside, they talk about meeting at a Teen Vogue party back in 2015… and the rest is history.
“I realized I was in love when I knew my life would be extremely affected in a negative way if Ryan wasn’t in it,” the actor told the publication. “Loving someone is a very natural feeling that just happens. You can’t just wake up and SAY I love this person, you FEEL it. You realize like wow, this person is a piece me and regardless you don’t ever want that person out your life.”
He continued, “I also felt myself growing as a person when Ryan came into my life, especially mentally. And I realized that I’m ready to deal with anything I have to deal with alongside Ryan. Once I felt that, I knew.”
