The Audre Lorde Questionnaire to Oneself

What are the words you do not have yet? [ Or ‘for what do you not have the words yet?]

  • What do you need to say? [ List as many things as necessary]
  • What are the tyrannies you swallow day by day and attempt to make your own, until you will sicken and die of them still in silence? [ List as many as necessary today, then write a new list tomorrow and the day after.]
  • If we have been socialised to respect fear more than our own need for language, ask yourself: ‘What is the worst that could happen if I tell this truth?’ [ So, answer this today and every day]
