To be Black, female, gay, and out of the closet in a white environment…was considered by many Black lesbians to be simply suicidal. And if you were fool enough to do it, you’d better come on so tough that nobody messed with you.

Audre Lorde, Zami: A New Spelling of my Name, p.224 (via phdreamsanddenials)

why black queer femmes are rare breeds

why black queer women can’t be delicate and gentle

because this is still true

and it’s only made worse by white queers who want their big bad black butch daddy who will basically take care of them like they think a man would’ve if they were straight

even worse when they approach EVERY Black queer like they should become a big bad black butch daddy on a whim
