Minnie Bruce Pratt

I am very lucky to share a domain in life with Minnie Bruce Pratt. We met in 1992 and have lived together since 1993.

I first fell in love with Minnie Bruce while reading her poetry and essays.  If you haven’t read her books yet, you’re in for a powerful experience. If you have read her books, like me, you probably find yourself re-reading them and getting more out of her writing each time.

There’s so much I could say about Minnie Bruce (that’s her whole first name—like Fannie Lou or Mary Jo). I just have to settle for letting this page continuously change.

For now, I offer you this Valentine I wrote for Minnie Bruce as part of a feature entitled "Love Letters From Queers" that appeared in the February 25, 1996 issue of Lesbian and Gay New York.
