Amandla Stenberg, Hari Nef, Tyler Ford and Rowan Blanchard are featured in Interview’s new activists feature. A quote from Amandla:

“I mean, unfortunately or not unfortunately, take it as you will, when you are a marginalized person or a woman of color and/or someone who’s a part of the LGBTQ community, your acts become politicized, just by being yourself. Because we’re not completely accepting of all different kinds of human beings. So that’s been an interesting dynamic for me to navigate. [laughs] By being myself, I’m doing something political.”
