Feature: Educator & Writer Azureé Harrison
Updated: Sep 1, 2021
Azureé Harrison is an educator and writer. Her writing mostly examines the
unpredictable chapters of parenthood as a Black and Queer woman. She currently resides in
Prince George’s County, Maryland with her wife and strong-willed twin toddlers. For more, visit azureeharrison.com.
When asked about what her work means to her, she shares the following:
"I write, first and foremost, to understand myself. Writing is the best way I know how to process my thoughts and derive meaning from my experiences."
I believe I became a writer as a result of my first love: reading. I love and deeply admire anyone who has the courage and finesse to pick up the proverbial pen and tell their own story, especially those of us who come from marginalized identities.
"There is so much power in owning our narratives and speaking our truths."
Azureé recently submitted a piece to Sacrosanct "Parenting Without Labels" where she explores how parenthood forced her to confront the ways in which she has navigated masculinity by rejecting all things feminine. Her piece ultimately tackles her journey to identify as a parent who is carving out their own nonbinary expression.
