If the past year and a half has taught us anything, it’s that community – finding it, building it, and celebrating it – is essential for all of us. It is in that spirit that Fenway Health’s Women’s Health Team is proud to host the 23rd Annual Audre Lorde Cancer Awareness Brunch virtually on October 16, 2021.
Started in 1999, the brunch is named to honor Audre Lorde, a self-described “Black, lesbian, mother, warrior, poet” who battled cancer for 14 years. We continue Audre’s legacy as we gather to celebrate Black, Indigenous, People of Color (BIPOC), Queer, Transgender, People of Color (QTPoC), non-binary and gender fluid people, and LGBTQIA+ community members and their supporters whose lives have been affected by cancer.
In the latest episode of Fenway Health’s Pride in Our Health podcast, we chat with Nandini Choudhury, Women’s Health Program Coordinator at Fenway Health, about the roots of the Brunch, this year’s program, and the importance of keeping community spaces going through the “new normal.”
