Intersectionalism recognizes that all forms of oppression are interlinked and often coexist; a black woman, for example, experiences both misogyny from men and racism. In the context of the LGBT community, it is important to recognize the many, overlapping identities we have both in terms of oppression (as members of the LGBT and other minority communities) and in terms of privilege (as whites, men, or other privileged class). By recognizing and welcoming other minority groups, we can all make longer strides toward liberation.

Below are some of the resources involving intersectionality.
