Love Notes From Quarantine
“In the digital age, the physical act of writing has become increasingly rare. “In the process of writing a love note, you’re writing fully positively,” says Khloe Bailey Obazee, the founder of digital storytelling platform PRIM, who masterminded the fourth instalment in British Vogue’s Pride 2020 short film series.
Kept apart by the Covid-19 lockdown, members of OKHA, PRIM’s queer Black book club, were asked to pen a note, to themselves, to their community, or to the thing “holding them down in quarantine”. The sweet missives, all written by members of the African, Caribbean, Afro-Latinx, Black, queer, trans and non-binary communities, have been compiled into a book, Love Notes From Quarantine, and three were chosen to be read aloud by the authors for the video. “It felt very natural to just be like, let’s write love notes and get used to writing things down,” Khloe tells British Vogue.” - Alice Carey
