Number 1 in an edition of 3. From the book and series, REWIND: MEMORIES ON REPEAT.

Here, McCall spotlights the cover story from The Village Voice featuring his friend, Moi Renee (seen here facing the camera). The article investigates the violence and homophobia experienced by the Black LGBTQ+ community, particularly within Jamaican culture. In the article, Renee details the violent attacks he faced. Despite those instances, Renee remained courageous and stated in the article (pg. 32), “If I feel like walking with a switch or behaving openly effeminate I do it…I feel proud to go out and be myself.”
