Accomplished activist and musician Faith Nolan is a global-minded lesbian who takes her music from prisons to dyke bars. In our last official episode of the series, Faith talks about her deep roots in queer, women’s and anti-poverty activism. Born in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Faith is the founder and director of three different choirs in Toronto, and a producer of the film, Within These Cages, about women in prison. Faith and I had a lively conversation, and she discussed the contributions of lesbians to many things - including fashion - that are often under-recognized. It was a true delight to speak with Faith.
Some of the work Faith talks about: For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Suicide / When the Rainbow is Enuf https://www.barnesandnoble.com/w/for-colored-girls-who-have-considered-suicide-when-the-rainbow-is-enuf-ntozake-shange/1101007683
