Operation Baby MSK is back on

2015 is so close I can count the days… so I have to get my mind together for Operation Baby MSK1.

gator_maternityshirtI must admit that with the all the in-your-face attacks on young black men, I have been rethinking whether I want to have a little person right now. But I said to myself if I wait for the world to treat black people equally, I will never have a baby.

 

So Operation Baby MSK is back on deck.

Congrats to Superlesbian the new Mrs. @Martina Navratilova

martina_wife2Congratulations are in order!

One of the League of Extraordinary Lesbians,  Martina Navratilova has tied the knot to her longtime girlfriend Julia Lemigova on Monday, December 15th.

“I’m 58 years old — I got married for the first time,” Navratilova told the BBC shortly after the ceremony, details of which have thus far been scarce. “It’s about time, right? Growing up as a gay woman you just don’t ever think about that.”

Warm wishes to the happy couple from us over here at the K Word. If you missed the proposal video from of Navratilova proposing1 at the US Open last September, check it out below.

What They Said: An Open Letter to Mainstream LGBT Organizations That Have Remained Silent on Black Lives Mattering

Many Americans seem to only remember one of the two namesakes of the 2009 federal hate-crime bill signed into law by President Obama: Matthew Shepard. Similarly, many Americans also seem to only remember the bill as the Matthew Shepard Act. However, this abbreviated mention conveniently leaves out the other person for whom the act is named: James Byrd Jr.

Shepard was a white, gay college student who was brutally assaulted by two homophobes near Laramie, Wyoming, and died six days following the heartrending attack. His death now haunts our collective consciousness, reminding us that hate against LGBT people might surely mean death.

James Byrd Jr., on the other hand, was a Black man from Texas. Byrd was ruthlessly murdered by three men, two of whom identified as white supremacists. His ankles were chained to the back of a pickup truck, and he was dragged approximately three miles along an asphalt road in Jasper, Texas. In the process, his head and right arm were severed from his body. His torso was eventually left in front of a cemetery that mostly contained the bodies of other Black people. Whereas Shepard was murdered because of his perceived sexual identity, Byrd was killed because he was Black.

#SupportBlackLezBiz – AudaciouS

In light of my renewed FUBU attitude, every Monday we have decided to spotlight new black lesbian owned businesses in the new segment called #SupportBlackLezBiz.

I don’t know why we haven’t done this before… I have thought about it but never put it together. It seems so natural. We love supporting our community. We love online shopping. And we am sure at least a few of you guys do too. Now everything might not be for everyone, but we do want to showcase our sapphic sisters doing their things.  So let’s do it.

Then Comes Baby in a Baby Carriage…

Hello lovebugs.

It has been a very long time since I have blogged consistently. I would go into the long and short of my hiatus but I won’t. Suffice to say it was an experience and hopefully all involved will be better for it.

So cute... grabbed from Pinterest.
So cute… grabbed from Pinterest.

Okay so as many of my friends and family know, I want to have a little KK.  The realization alone has been a scary one since for many years I said it would be me and Champagne (my puppy, not the libation) together forever. I said it so much I believed it… and then I didn’t. I guess it started when my grand nephews were born. They were beautiful and small and I was old enough to appreciate it. I wanted to protect them, educate them and foster their growth. And then I turned 30… and then 31… and… yeah older than 31. Continue reading Then Comes Baby in a Baby Carriage…
