Audre Lorde / On the Personal & Political



"I didn't know how I was going to bring my personal and political vision together, but I knew it had to be possible because I felt them both too strongly, and knew how much I needed them both to survive. I did not agree with Rhea and her progressive friends when they said that this was not what the revolution was about. Any world which did not have a place for me loving women was not a world in which I wanted to live, nor one which I could fight for."
~Audre Lorde, "Zami: A New Spelling Of My Name" (p.197)
