In January Gay Voices began its Voice To Voice conversation series with a collection of interviews between LGBT authors discussing queer topics and issues related to writing.

Now we continue, in honor of Black History Month, asking prominent, accomplished and incisive people who are black and LGBT to join the Voice To Voice series to help foster a better understanding of the issues and challenges that arise at the intersection of both communities.

Already this month we’ve featured Lawana Mayfield and Rhonda Watlington, Meshell Ndegeocello and Toshi Reagon, Laverne Cox and M. Lamar, and Clay Cane and Janet Mock.

Today we bring you Michael Crawford and Aisha Moodie-Mills.
