Description

"Black Queer Hoe is a refreshing, unapologetic intervention into ongoing conversations about the line between sexual freedom and sexual exploitation. Women's sexuality is often used as a weapon against them. In this powerful debut, Britteney Black Rose Kapri lends her unmistakable voice to fraught questions of identity, sexuality, reclamation, and power, in a world that refuses Black Queer women permission to define their own lives and boundaries"--Amazon.com.

further your identity varies from "my Blackness, my Queerness, my Hotness," the higher the likelihood you feelings may be hurt. But as they say on TikTok, write those big feelings down in your journal, don't shout them at her, because Kapri isn't setting out to be anyone's hero but her own.

An amazing read. So glad I stumbled across this.
