Tuesday Quotes

“I don’t decide to play the characters I play as a political choice, yet the characters I play often do become political statements because having your story told as a woman, as a person of color, as a lesbian or as a trans person, or as any member of any disenfranchised community, is sadly, often, still a radical idea. There is so much power in storytelling, and there is enormous power in inclusive storytelling.”

Kerry Washington, demonstrating intersectional feminism and all kinds of awesomeness in her speech at the GLAAD Awards.
