This MRP provides unique insight into the lived reality of a black queer woman as it creates an intricate picture of what oppression entails. Auto-ethnography is used to discuss some experiences that black queer women face, as they strive for authentic self-love and wellness in a social climate of adversity. Personal transformative recollections are used to allow readers to gain an in-depth understanding as to why black queer women systemically struggle to experience authentic belonging in the queer and black communities. The powerful stories are shared in hopes of raising critical awareness and empathy within readers as they interact with black queer youth throughout society
