(Y) Dentida

I am a product of a society that does not want me, and my identity is the constant re-imagining of old constructs, living in the border space between who i want to be and who i am... i wish not to (re)cover my past, but heal the wounds to my future

As a Black women filmmaker I feel that’s my job: visibility. And my preference within that job is Black subjectivity. Meaning I’m interested in the lives of Black folk as the subject. Not the predicate, not the tangent. These stories deserve to be told. Not as sociology, not as spectacle, not as a singular event that happens every so often, but regularly and purposefully as truth and as art on an ongoing basis, as do the stories of all the women you love.

Ava DuVernay

Quote is from her speech at the 7th Annual Black Women In Hollywood Luncheon by Essence. I really love the "not as sociology, not as spectacle" part. I love this quote so much and admire and enjoy Ava’s work.

Not queer like gay. Queer like, escaping definition. Queer like some sort of fluidity and limitlessness at once. Queer like a freedom too strange to be conquered. Queer like the fearlessness to imagine what love can look like…and pursue it.
