It seeks to address the ways some survivors are centralized and some are relegated to the margins. This anthology will bring visibility to those of us that are rendered invisible by mainstream anti-sexual violence work, organizing and healing spaces. It works to magnify those of us who find ourselves defined by splintered identities and it acknowledges how we are often unable to weave all of these truths together because of mainstream dominance and erasure. Through critical and personal narratives, this anthology addresses the limitations of a society that is not only unequipped to deal with rape culture but is also unable to look at it without the lens of heterosexual privilege and through the interests of a gender binary system."
