FEATURE POET Madeline Lessing is two decades young and ready to fight anyone who deserves it. Madeline calls Boston their home, specifically the House Slam, Dumpling Kingdom, and the arms of their femme friends. Through their writing Madeline aims to get more people to talk about their feelings, to be better caretakers, and to honor the femme magic that goes so unappreciated, but keeps the world spinning everyday. Madeline would not be the community member or writer they are without the coaches they've had: Porsha, Sheena, Charlotte, Chrysanthemum, and Muggs. It is because of them that Madeline continues to live and grow so vibrantly, no matter how the world tries them.
