Audre Lorde quote

ILLUSTRATION BY MEREDITH STERN

 

Audre Lorde (1934-1992) insisted upon the dignity of intersectional identities, including her own: She famously described herself as a “black, lesbian, feminist, mother, poet warrior.” In her writing and her activism, Lorde fought for equity and justice for people of color, women, members of the LGBTQ community and more.
