Thanks to Nathan Gauer for an opportunity to speak about cultural silences on Huffington Post! It was a great way to introduce new audiences to select poems in the book and the issues that they examine. From the interview:
"It's clear that there is no national heritage that has not been shaped by the bias of its times. Yet we know our silence will not protect us, as Audre Lorde once admonished. It is in our refusal to be silenced, in pushing back against invisibility that we can discover power we never thought we had. My work is a challenge to this new generation to break all binaries, to reclaim how we are defined, and to write ourselves a new culture that can celebrate our equality as human beings."
