In honor of Pride 2023, I styled Jamaican artist Demaro, “Dancehall’s first openly gay artist.” – @BillboardPride, in my limited-edition Brella Bag Festival Collection in the Greenwich Village.  Demaro left Jamaica, which is a notoriously homophobic country, on a personal journey to live his life as an openly gay man.  Here in the states, he is dedicated to working hard to live out his dreams of fully expressing himself, in a safe space, not only as an artist, but also as a human.  The Essential Poncho and Everything Pant can both be purchased at .  Instagram: @CarryUm_BrellaBag  As a reminder, make sure to subscribe to West View News for even more colorful stories during Pride month and beyond.
