“Blondes really are having way more fun than everybody. Imagine not being blonde…”
Fashion stylist Lysa Cooper bravely shares her story, (and what it’s like not being blonde), in the video below… all while taking her clothes off. She says, “I can’t be the only one who feels like this. I’m not depressed. I’m f***ing lonely.”
Lysa’s story is about being black in America. It’s about working in the fashion industry, even when no one wanted her (or people like her) there. It’s about heart-wrenching loneliness and the search for true love… online.

You don’t have to know (or even care) about what’s going on in Baltimore right now to be able to relate to Lysa’s story.
“A big part of the problem in our world is that nobody is loving each other anymore. We barely have time to spend with each other. Am I just going to be out here by myself forever?”
When she starts to tear up 7 minutes in, I did too. When she asks, “Am I just going to be out here by myself forever?” I want to just hold her and tell her that, even though I don’t know her, I already love her. And even though our stories are different, I feel her pain and shame and loneliness.
