Starr Mcqueen creates hilarious and relatable content sharing everyday life dilemmas, and amazing beauty tutorials of creative nail art and amazing hair and makeup transformations.
Equality through innovation
The UN's theme for this year's International Women's Day is "DigitALL: Innovation and technology for gender equality". And, in our own small way, we see Detail as part of that movement.
Video is the medium we all use to communicate, to learn, and to be entertained. But it's still a remarkably inaccessible art form for many.
Content creation is still a male dominated space and even in the niches where representation is better for women, they're still losing out to male creators who get paid more or receive better opportunities from advertisers.
We believe that improving access to cheaper, more accessible tools for producing video can create more opportunities for women to share their knowledge, craft, skills or story with the world.
And, in turn, inspire more women to explore these digital spaces because they can see themselves represented in the content they're watching online.
