Lisa C. Moore

The founder and editor of the Washington, D.C.-based RedBone Press, Lisa C. Moore publishes books to change lives. “I hope that through my work more black gay and lesbian people become comfortable with who they are, and realize that they’re not alone in the world; I also hope to give the broader culture access to some of our lives. Books have always helped to increase understanding, and I think I’m helping to accomplish that.” She edited the anthology does your mama know? An Anthology of Black Lesbian Coming Out Stories, and co-edited Spirited: Affirming the Soul and Black Gay/Lesbian Identity. Moore also serves as the Board President of Fire & Ink, an organization that supports the work of LGBT writers of African descent. She says, “It’s all part and parcel of my life’s work of connecting people with other people and information to help them grow.” -CB
