Khariis Ubiaro, born in London in 1998, is a renaissance talent - as actor, dancer, singer, poet, and model - and he appears in the hotly-anticipated major motion picture, Kingsman: The Golden Circle (2017). His poetry is mythic, personal, political, and ultimately addresses issues of identity, race, youth and music culture, and life's challenges, with passion, humour, and integrity.
We are proud to bring this work to a wider public.

This is astonishing news and so very wonderful!
Here in the United States, our current President is determined to disadvantage, marginalize and dehumanize persons of color, persons of non-heterosexual identity, and persons who live in impoverished circumstances.
Trump is also determined to legitimize and empower the white supremacy movement.
Publishing young and brilliant artists like Khariis Ubiaro is a powerful act of protest and resistance by Eyewear, for which we American readers are ever so grateful.
