Step Inside Truth a Steampunk Coffee Shop in Cape Town, South Africa

This radically designed steampunk-themed coffee shop was created by Heldane Martin who considered the form factor of espresso machines and coffee roasters to be somewhat similar to the Victorian futuristic fantasy style found in the aesthetic of steampunk. The hope was also to personify Truth’s attempt at roasting the very best coffee by offering a perfectly executed space.

Thando Hopa, model from Johannesburg

Thando Hopa is a beautiful 30yo model (as well as lawyer and albinism activist) from Johannesburg.

I now realize that I have a platform to inspire young girls, and as someone who never had a role model who looked like me when I was growing up, I now hope to be able to show that albinism can be beautiful and is just another kind of normal.

People living with albinism still face tremendous stigmatization, persecution and even murder in many African countries, including South Africa, due to traditional beliefs.
