|Seeking affirmation in your own community — and providing it to others|

In my job, I am fortunate to meet many people. I tend to remember most people I've talked to over the years, but some people definitely stick out.
They discuss comic books, feminism, the church and their art. Check out the entire blog for a good read and video links to some of Edwards' short films. But one question and answer struck a chord with me.
I know gay, queer, etc. are White-constructed sociopolitical terms that did not include people of color. However, that’s what I came to know first and how I came into my own. The rainbows, the 'Out and Proud' consciousness may have came from people that do not look like me, but I am affirmed. It’s an affirmation that I’ve had to create in my own Black community because we don’t readily give it to each other.
What are your thoughts about what these men had to say?
