theGrio’s We Are #BlackLove series is designed to celebrate the inspiring stories of couples in our community who may be underrepresented in media. In our third episode, we chat with Brandon Nick, 30, and Donja (pronounced Don-ye’) Love, 32.

Brandon is a filmmaker and photographer and Donja is a writer and student at the famed, Juilliard School. The two have been together for five years and married for two years. They are the co-founders of  The Each-Other Project, an organization that fosters and celebrates community for people of color who are on the gender and sexual spectrum.

According to the official site, the founders want to create a community that will be a “refuge for Queer and Trans People of Color.” Their goal is to provide content that continues to uplift, educate, challenge, inspire, entertain, and speaks to their audience.

As true creatives who embody different ways of expression, Brandon and Donja have figured out how to successfully combine their passion for community and one another. Being partners in both work and life, they some how figured out a way to achieve a balance early on. We think their love is beyond dope and know that you will too.
