More About Zami

Zami was formed in the fall of 1995 by a small group of black womyn
in their 20s who identified as lesbian, bisexual, or womyn who were
exploring their sexual orientation. The group met formally once a month
to hold open discussions and serve as a support network.
The group decided to change its focus by simply becoming
an informational organization that helps provide black women
information about activities and events in DC and various other

The term "Zami" was chosen to describe the group in memory of
Audre Lorde, a black lesbian who died of cancer. One of her books
is entitled "Zami: A New Spelling of My Name." The book reflected the
importance of self-identification and, therefore, our group believed the
name to be representative of our group's direction.
