I've been waving
a sign on street corners since H8 passed: "Black
Queers." Responses have varied -- from honks of support
to looks of disapproval from both blacks and whites. A
black woman came up to me at a rally and asked me if I
didn't think the sign was offensive to black people. I
said, "It's who I am, and people should know."
