Busy Being Black means cultivating a mindset that allows us to constantly embrace and celebrate cultures outside our own. Ryan Lanji, an art and fashion curator, was raised in Canada in a melting pot of cultures and realities that has left a lasting impression on how he sees and interacts with the world around him. His club night, Hungama, is named so for the Hindu word for chaos and bedlam — a word his mother used to describe the joy and revelry of big family gatherings. Indeed, it seems that so much of Ryan’s work centres around a collision of cultures that fosters a deeper cultural appreciation to help amplify our similarities.
Busy Being Black is a podcast exploring how we thrive in the fullness of our queer Black lives.
