Celebrating Gracia Molina de Pick
“’My aunt was a very intimate friend of [Mexican Artist] Frida Kahlo,’ says Molina de Pick. ‘My aunt is your classical lesbian. Everyone knows [my aunt] is a lesbian, but she is completely in the closet. She is 95 now. But when I was 12 or 13, I would spend time with my aunt and Kahlo. I learned from them that great people defend not only themselves, but those who cannot defend themselves.’”
Molina de Pick believes that she has seen discrimination in every form possible. And this is, in large part, what drives her activism. ‘I’m a radical person,’ says Molina de Pick. ‘I have to be. I think anyone who identifies with human rights is going to be a radical in politics. We are on the cutting edge. My last breath will be fighting for those human rights.’”
Radical persons… I wonder why rights have to be radical? I wonder why..thats all…
Great question. I was thinking the same thing.
yeah, i’d like that to be the norm and let the opposite be radical. that’s 3 votes. there’s bound to be more . . .
