“She’s weird, and I like it,” described marketing guru Danielle of her first impression of voiceover artist Brandé, her partner in life and business. Yin and yang personified, this entrepreneurial couple’s latest endeavor is a CBD brand, Unoia. “As a voiceover artist, I drink a lot of tea, and CBD honey was born,” says Brandé. “We both believe in holistic and natural healing.”

Neighborhood: Downtown

Style:
BE:
I love wigs! A good platform heel. Bodysuits. Vintage bathing suits. People tell me I’m too much—Danielle tells me I’m just enough. She gives me permission to be exactly who I am.
DG: Masculine and feminine balance. Lots of prints. No heels! It’s been a journey to get here because I only saw certain boxes to fit into as a lesbian woman.

Celebrity style crush:
BE:
Keyshia Ka’oir
DG: Lenny Kravitz.
