Inspiration! Africans are tweeting beautiful pictures of their lives to fight "poverty-porn"

While I'm not sure I love the use of the word "porn" to describe anything other than actual porn, I love what is happening on Twitter right now with the hashtag #TheAfricaTheMediaNeverShowsYou.

To fight the completely one-dimensional image the media is perpetuating about Africa, African people are sharing images on twitter of their beautiful lives.

From these incredible, colourful outfits...



To these incredible landscapes...



These awesome celebrations of love...
