Solace: Writing, Refuge, and LGBTQ Women of Color

I will definitely be reading this collection. You should too. Pre-sale Oct. 1st 2016

Dr. Stephanie Andrea Allen


Deeply troubled by recent acts of violence against Black and Brown lesbian, bisexual, and trans* bodies, Solace: Writing, Refuge and LGBTQ Women of Color explores the ways in which LGBTQ women find solace: in each other, in their communities, and from within themselves, as they traverse the dangers of living as LGBTQ women of color in the United States.

Solace is a collection of writing that explores our pain, as well as our attempts to find solace in a world that seeks to destroy us. Audre Lorde writes that “We were never meant to survive,” yet here we are. What are our strategies for survival? Where do we find solace? The poetry and prose contained within Solace seeks to answer these questions.
