100 Women We Love: Unique
We are thrilled to present the 2013 list of 100 Women We Love - Including...
If anyone is tuned into the plight of today’s LGBT community, it’s Unique. “Having to overcome a childhood filled with constant bullying, low self-esteem, and a rejection of my own identity, I know what it’s like to feel alone, to think suicide is the only solution to your problems,” says the New York City-based radio personality on what fuels her work in the queer community. “My goal is not only to be a voice in my community, but to help give a voice to those who have been muted, or are afraid to live openly and happily because of societal pressures.” And she’s racked up a sizable fan base doing just that. Unique founded the C.R.E.A.T.I.V.U. (Collectively Reaching Everyone Abroad Transmitting Inspirational Vibes Uniquely) radio show, where she addresses a range of LGBT-oriented issues, helping and advising listeners along the way. When she’s not running things at C.R.E.A.T.I.V.U., Unique works as a motivational speaker, mentor, writer, LGBTQIA activist, actress, and graphic designer, all with the overarching goal of creating a positive impact on as many lives as possible.
