Nydia Blas is an artist and community leader whose pictures capture a striking and deeply intimate perspective of black female adolescence. A s executive director of the Southside Community Center in Ithaca, New York , Blas works closely with teenage girls to help establish a safe space where they are celebrated and empowered to thrive within a predominantly white environment. Her series The Girls Who Spun Gold is both a collaboration and an ode to the young women she works with. Each picture explicitly confronts the stereotypes perpetuated by decades of racist propaganda in an effort to reclaim identity, and, like the Southside Community Center, create a safe space in which young black women can see themselves. Here, Blas speaks with BuzzFeed News about her work and the powerful meaning behind the pictures.

The vulva is the external, visible part of your genitals — your labia lips , clitoris, vaginal opening, and the opening to your urethra the hole you pee out of. The vagina is the tube between the vulva and the cervix. This tube is the connection between the external parts and the uterus. The vagina is what babies come out of during birth, and what menstrual blood comes out of through during your period. The vagina is also used for penetration and insertion, such as with a penis, fingers, female condoms, sex toys, tampons, or menstrual cups. Different, but beautiful. Labia the inner and outer lips come in several different shapes and sizes. People can have dangly labia, puffy labia, or barely-there labia. Some inner labia stick out past the outer labia, and some inner labia are more tucked in. All perfectly good.

You and your vag have been through a lot together: Your first tampon, your first relationship, your first orgasm. But how much do you actually know about her? Well, it's time to get reacquainted with your homegirl's fun quirks. Let's do this! Not every woman is born with a hymen. That thin membrane partially covering the entrance to the vagina isn't guaranteed, according to the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists. And even if you were born with one, playing sports as a kid, using tampons, or random medical procedures can "break" it. So not having a hymen doesn't really mean you've never had sex before. Labia come in all shapes and sizes. The labia majora, or the lip-like tissue around the opening of your vagina, can be as little as one quarter inch or up to two inches wide, per ACOG.
