Quotes Nikhil P. Liked

Audre Lorde
“I remember how being young and Black and gay and lonely felt. A lot of it was fine, feeling I had the truth and the light and the key, but a lot of it was purely hell.”
Audre Lorde, Zami: A New Spelling of My Name

Audre Lorde
“I wasn't cute or passive enough to be "femme," and I wasn't mean or tough enough to be "butch." I was given a wide berth. Non-conventional people can be dangerous, even in the gay community.”
Audre Lorde, Zami: A New Spelling of My Name
