There is a PoC or more specifically a WoC, who practices WICCA, not VOODOO, but WICCA on a Broadcast channel! I am sorry that this may not seem like a lot to some people who may not understand the difference between the two practices. BUT to this little brown girl who has seen too many Voodoo Priestess, NBC making her a Wicca instead I can’t even describe the feelings I am having right now!
So! Let’s talk about Barbara Jordan…
Who was she?
Only one of the most badass queer women you will ever hear about. She was the FIRST southern black woman to be elected to the US House of Representatives. That’s right. SOUTHERN.
The gal was born in Houston Texas February 21, 1936. Raised there. And died in Austin Texas in 1996. But not before leaving behind a legacy for all queer folk, Texans, colored folk, women, and the like to aspire to. And in the 60s no less.
Was she a lesbian or a bisexual? We’ll never know for sure because she was never out publically in her lifetime, but her obituary in the Houston Chronicle mentioned her 20 - year relationship with Nancy Earl.
Whether L or B in LGBT+, today seems like as good a day as any to spread the word about this amazing Woman who loved another woman.
