Lena Waithe Covers the April Issue of VANITY FAIR

Lena Waithe is front and center on the April issue of VANITY FAIR magazine.

From Her iconic Emmy win to snagging a role in Steven Spielberg’s new movie ‘Ready Player One,’ Waithe is becoming a household name! Read on to discover what she had to say during her sit down with Jacqueline Woodson.

  • On telling her story HER WAY:
  • “I am tired of white folks telling my stories. We gotta tell our shit. Can’t no one tell a black story, particularly a queer story, the way I can, because I see the God in us. James Baldwin saw the God in us. Zora saw the God in us. When I’m looking for myself, I find myself in the pages of Baldwin.”
  • Author Jacqueline Woodson on finding herself in Lena Waithe:
  • “For so many of us who have not seen an out Black lesbian front and center this way, her arrival is a small, long-awaited revelation. Her arrival is our arrival.”
