Album Notes
You may have heard Ani DiFranco read “Detroit Annie” at her Carnegie Hall concert in 2002. You may have read about Judy on Modern American Poetry site, or seen one of her poems at the World Poetry Translation Project online site. You may have been shocked to see,“I am the dyke in the matter…” as graffiti on an overpass in London in the 1980’s, or seen Judy’s name and picture on a placard carried by Argentine lesbian activists at the Plaza de las Mujeres in Buenas Aires.

Or perhaps you studied “A Woman Is Talking to Death” in a literature class in college, or took an evening to read it to your best friend.

Then again, you may also know Judy as a cultural theorist, a poet-philosopher of our times and ways. Another Mother Tongue: Gay Words, Gay Worlds may hold a cherished space for you, because it explores social meanings of queer lives. And most people do love to have meaning. You may be one of the men or women who wrote her a tender letter about this classic book. And, you may be looking for a new direction, and love her new origin story about who we are as evolving humans and ritual beings in her book Blood Bread, and Roses: How Menstruation Created the World.
