Oliver Hadlee Pearch Flashes Priestly Men In 'Angels In America' Fashion For Vogue L'Uomo Spring 2019

Oliver Hadlee Pearch turns his lens to the flagrant, in our faces hypocrisy of the Vatican and the Catholic Church worldwide on the topic of homosexuality. Carlos Nazario styles the cast in ecclesiastical-inspired menswear, heavy with the drapes of sartorial concealment, in ‘Angels in America’ for Vogue L’Uomo Spring 2019.

In 1565, Africans helped establish the first permanent European settlement in what is St. Augustine, Florida today.

India: How #MeToo Is Battling Gender-based Violence

The #MeToo campaign has provided a gateway for Indian women to vocalise the “enough is enough” message and seek justice. Some have referred to it as revolutionary.
