The Femme Playlist / I Cannot Lie to the Stars That Made Me (print)

From masturbation to motherhood, body shaming to burlesque, Catherine Hernandez reveals the reality of living as a queer woman of colour. Set to the music of her life, The Femme Playlist shows what it’s like to be sexy and proud, slutty and loud, queer and brown.

I Cannot Lie to the Stars That Made Me is an around-the-campfire guide to mourning and healing for women of colour, written after Hernandez and her daughter left an abusive relationship. As a group of women share their stories around a campfire, they pray for each other and give as much strength as their bodies will allow.

“It is so refreshing to see a woman celebrate her sexuality on stage while actively resisting the oppressive gazes that would objectify her doing so.” —Jeremy Gardiner, Mooney on Theatre
