It is officially Fall and the end of Gay Pride Season!  The MobileHomecoming Project has allowed us to relate to PRIDE celebrations in the South with renewed intergenerational intentionality!  I feel so present to my love for Black Queer community I hardly know what to do!  Oh wait! Yes I do!  Create a podcast and a new volume of the Little Black (Feminist) Book Series!

While you are folding laundry or recentering yourself for a revolutionary day take a listen to this podcast dedicated to our Black queer community and all of the complexity of our pride.
