These posters were made to honor Audre Lorde and to help fundraise for The Audre Lorde Project, a community organization based in New York that supports queer people of color. The quote on the poster is from "The Cancer Journals" by Audre Lorde, a Black feminist, activist, poet, and prolific essayist: "When I dare to be powerful, to use my strength in the service of my vision, then it becomes less and less important whether I am afraid."
All proceeds will go toward ALP : "The Audre Lorde Project is a Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Two Spirit, Trans and Gender Non-Conforming People of Color community organizing center, focusing on the New York City area. Through mobilization, education and capacity-building, we work for community wellness and progressive social and economic justice. Committed to struggling across differences, we seek to responsibly reflect, represent and serve our various communities."
