    ‘Feminists to Feministas: Women of Color in Prints and Posters’ at GLBT History Museum, San Francisco

    Dyke Action Machine, Do you love the Dyke in Your Life, 1993: "Public art project Dyke Action Machine (DAM!) created this poster campaign in response to a Calvin Klein ad. The prominent presence of women of color signals the legacy of lesbian feminists’ efforts at racial inclusion as well as widening recognition of the critical way in which women of color contribute to the new queer aesthetic."COURTESY GLBT HISTORICAL SOCIETY, SAN FRANCISCO
