"Black people are queer as well. Black people we have been seen as the strange and odd and not normal thing since we were shipped out here. There needs to be this understanding that you yourself that you may be...strictly straight...but you are queer because you are black."
It’s call and response’s season four finale and we want the world to know! Kick off the final Friday of Black History Month with Candice Marie Woods. We chat about immersing themselves in queer culture, addressing misconceptions about trans and nonbinary folx, and navigating crossover appeal like their onstage counterpart in Ain’t Too Proud, Diana Ross.
