"Today, on this International Women’s Day, I celebrate and bow to the women writers who dared to be seen, who dared to be heard, who dared to define their lives for themselves. Without you, I would not and could not exist as a young woman of color writer, adding my voice to the collective chorus singing the experience of marginalized womanhood. I am deeply humbled to be a part of this legacy.” —from my new essay celebrating Womens History Month through the words and works of women of color writers
The Identity Project by Sarah Deragon
What (if anything) did this series reveal to you about the labels we choose for ourselves?
One thing that has been really fascinating to me is how labels change over time. In fact, when I look at the history of the labels I’ve used to define myself, it was quite a journey. When I came out, I was a lesbian and then I was queer and then I was femme and then I was a glitter femme and now I’m a queer femme. I imagine that my labels might change again in the next 10 years and I love how the words that I’ve used to define myself mark my personal queer history. This project reminds us that we’re always growing and changing. Finding words that resonate with who we are or what we’re attracted to is powerful.(source)

My work grew out of anger, frustration, confusion — not my usual inspirations. But one quality that queers have always had is the ability to transform our “given” situation into something better, by any means necessary. These works are made by a queen who refuses to be bitter and twisted, tempting though it may be. I intend to keep on feeling angry and fabulous at the same time. DMD, October 1992
