What do you all think of the bi lesbian term/ identity?

I think it’s great that there’s people who have found a way to describe their sexuality in a way that feels right and precise to them and I don’t think it is anyone’s business to debate, invalidate or police that.

In other words: if someone wants to call themselves a bi lesbian then they are a bi lesbian.

There’s plenty of reasons why someone might choose to use both labels and they don’t owe anyone an explanation as to why they identify that way. Their existence doesn’t take anything away from people who
exclusively identify as lesbian OR bisexual.

There’s literally no harm done, despite what some scaremongering gatekeepers (and biphobes) might be saying.

Four Things We Can All Learn from Queering Kwanzaa:

Habari Gani? What’s the news? Maybe you, like me, have never thought to observe it … The past few years however, I’ve noticed many of my Queer Black friends coming together for Kwanzaa and thinking about it in a way that’s really affirming to their identities.

The central theme of Kwanzaa is authentic community, and as queer people who are often forced to give up some part of ourselves every day to exist safely in the world, queering Kwanzaa becomes a beautiful way to end the year and bring in the new one … Here are just four of the ways Kwanzaa builds rituals and traditions –

  1. Kwanzaa builds rituals and traditions
  2. Kwanzaa is intergenerational
  3. Kwanzaa reaffirms your chosen family
  4. Kwanzaa helps you bring light into the new year
