“Political is personal; personal is political. I never was a political person until I realized I was a lesbian. I was this oblivious middle-class white kid who didn’t understand the powers of oppression or structure or anything. My very existence became politicized for me and that’s what enabled me to see all these things. It wasn’t just me, it was a whole cultural movement that was also doing those things that I was a part of.
