100 WOMEN WE LOVE 2008

Hats off to the 100 Women We Love, class of 2008 (in no particular order, ’cause we love ’em all!).

Lenelle Moïse

Hatian-born poet, playwright and performance artist Lenelle Moïse is influenced by all that is “fierce, open and willing to change.” Moïse’s spoken word CD, Madivinez, won 2007’s Patchwork Radio Award for Best Solo Album, and Sexual Dependency, a feature film she co-wrote, won an International Film Critics’ Award at the Locarno International Film Festival in Switzerland. Her new musical, Expatriate, which opens this July at New York’s Culture Project, examines the sexual tension between long-time friends Claudie and Alphine. Moïse and actor Karla Mosley co-star. “I hope a lot of queer people will see this show,” she says. “It’s all about being brave in voice and in identity.”–LM
