Civil Rights Movement x Gay Liberation Movement

James Baldwin was an author, playwright and poet who explored themes around masculinity, sexuality, race, and class that intertwined to create complex narratives that ran parallel with some of the major political movements at the time, such as the Civil Rights Movement and the Gay Liberation Movement. ⁠

We would not be celebrating #pridemonth without the civil rights movement having been spearheaded by black lives, bodies and minds. 🙌⁠
