On “And I Said to God, Isn’t Being Black Enough? Do I Have To Be Gay Too?”

The Same Same Award to Carmen:

I love this, thank you shea and Don. I also really want to thank Don for these reflections on the word queer, I’m someone who self-identifies as queer pretty purposefully, and I think part of that (for me, at least) is also listening and take care when others share their feelings on the word, especially when they are as thoughtful reflections as this. It meant a lot and I’m definitely carrying it with me. Thank you.
