I often say I’m Black before I am queer. Race and sexuality do indeed intersect, and queer folks and Black folks share thesame abuse and maltreatment struggles. I am always amazed at how some privileged queer men and women choose (or hide behind) that privilege over fighting injustice and abuses of power with other minority groups abused by our systems of power. I wish more queer people with privilege would think more like you and speak up in ways meaningful and powerful like you have. Collectively, we’d be stronger.

We are one!
