Important read.

"This conversation can be a loaded one, so I want to clarify that I never want to diminish, belittle, or undermine anyone's hardships or experiences; nor would I ever want to alienate myself from a community of people I've come to understand as my own family. Rather, my intention with this conversation and others like it is to highlight the fact that there isn't just one "queer woman" experience — that even within a group of people, individuals can have their own unique narratives. Mine happens to pertain to race; someone else's might have to do with the intersection of queerness and disability; a third may have to do with something entirely different."
