Sinister Wisdom 47: Tellin' It Like It Tis'

Tellin' It Like It Tis'

Sinister Wisdom 47: Tellin' It Like It Tis' is edited entirely by a collective of eight Lesbians of Color: Akiba Tiamaya, Aly Kim, Cristy Terese Mei-Ling Chung, Jamie Lee Evans, Laura Orabona-Munter, Maya C. Valverde, Sauda (Lillian) Burch, and Xochipala Maes Valdez. The pieces submitted are clearly with ourselves at the center encompassing many aspects of our lives. Our cultures were integral parts of our work, not tacked on borders framing who we are. This issue reflects our relationships with each other; reclaiming our culturally specific herstories, mythologies, rituals and healing circles; and creating our own spaces rather than pushing our way into places that would have us only marginally.
