The Black Square represents an opportunity to do what you want, say what you want and be who you want. There are no rules within the Black Square; it symbolizes freedom. For the AW20 issue of GQ Style, the Black Square is the cover star. Within this feature, numerous creatives have created their own message, to contribute towards this monumental cultural shift. The Black Squares are messages of support, to create a better world for everybody.

“I intend for my works, including the work for this cover, to burst with values of liberation, all confronting and challenging representations of individuals. I prioritize the rich and multifaceted stories of the African diaspora.” - Amoako Boafo
