Staceyann Chin "Feminist Or Womanist"

After my last blog where I walk through various identities and experiences as a Jamaican man, it seems appropriate to feature Staceyann Chin in this post. In one of her signature pieces "Feminist Or Womanist", Jamaican poet Staceyann Chin navigates her various identities as well, touching on being a queer woman of Jamaican and Chinese heritage, an ex-Catholic, and well, a fierce woman who has survived a lot. Go Staceyann!!

Damnnn...that was very honest and powerful in the world of supposedly immutable definition. Wish i could pull that out of my pocket every time somebody asks me about my background.

It was rather interesting for me to read the blog. Thanks for it. I like such themes and everything connected to this matter. I would like to read a bit more on that blog soon.
