“The blacker the berry the sweeter the dyke” ❤️⁠

In 1974 the Black Lesbian Caucus, which was part of the Gay Liberation Front, became Salsa Soul Sisters, Third World Wimmin Inc. – a group focused on issues of importance to African-American and Latina lesbians. Early collective member and activist Candice Boyce said that, at the time of the group's founding, "there was no other place for women of color to go and sit down and talk about what it means to be a black lesbian in America.”⁠
