Issue 7.1 Introduction

We sorted the pieces into the categories we observed as we prepared for this issue, with feedback from the authors. You’ll notice that some pieces appear in more than one category: that’s because it’s impossible for many of our writers to boil their identities or experiences into just one theme. Each piece begins with content notes, so you can prioritize your comfort when navigating.
