Each day in February, BET has been posting a photo of a different black LGBTQ creator on Instagram as part of its monthlong #29DaysOfQueerExcellence social campaign. The beautifully shot portraits, featuring the kind of color-polarized lighting pioneered by queer Insecure cinematographer Ava Berkofsky, feature a wide range of black queer writers, filmmakers, activists, performers and more.
