The Life and Times of Butch Dykes Issue 1, Vol 5: Audre Lorde

by B&D Press

The Life and Times of Butch Dykes is B&D Press' series of fanzines about the lives and times of amazing women who could be considered icons against heteronormativity, in their very personal and unique ways. They're from different places/spaces and yet have as a common ground the fact that they're all accomplished creators, in work and life. They were and are brave people who tried to be authentic and faithful to what they perceived as their true identity. Audre Lorde identified as a "black, feminist, lesbian, mother, poet, warrior" whose powerful voice has changed the world and can still be heard in modern activism.
