Voices Rising marks the twentieth anniversary of Other Countries, a small organization endeavoring to create a powerful, far-reaching, deliberative legacy of Black queer expression. Voices Rising gathers more than sixty writers whose work forms an important bridge among members of the Black LGBT communities, charting two decades of evolution, accomplishment and struggle. The poems, short stories, essays, interviews and dramatic excerpts gathered here exemplify the personal, political and cultural complexities of identity, desire, family and community.
