Tarana took the news as an opportunity to champion diversity. “When I showed one of my girls and shared that I was debating going public she said ‘Black love is to be celebrated’,” she said. “And that resonated with me. So today I’m celebrating my love and all of the love spread from my timeline across the world.”
