BLACK

THE EFNIKS COVER STORY FOR February, on Black History and the experiences of Black LGBTQ Millennials.

 

The Editor's Note

Black LGTBQ+ histories are so often left out of our collective storytelling. The forms of erasure that many of us experience in our daily lives is reproduced at a much grander scale. When we are invited to the party, we face trauma at every turn. There are those who would see us quietly excised from the legacies of civil rights activism as if our social movements were not one and the same. There are others who would rather spend this time debating our humanity as if our concerns have always been a “distraction” from a moral greater good. We are Black History’s open secret. That little-known, well-known whispered thing among us.
