Happy Pride Month! Allison and Kimberlee discuss two female icons in LGBT history. Before the Stonewall riots, Barbara Gittings campaigned for LGBT visibility and equality. Later, she pushed to end the classification of homosexuality as a mental illness. Audre Lorde described herself as a "black, lesbian, mother, warrior, poet." With her poetry and her platform, she fought for greater consideration for intersectionality, addressing injustices of racism, sexism, classicism, and homophobia.
