Happy Monday! As fans of super gay movies, we are extremely excited about Sistah Sinema on IndieFlix. Curated and founded by @IsisAsare (photographed below), Sistah Sinema’s goal is to become an international distribution network for Queer Women of Color cinema. Adding roughly five titles each month to the platform,viewers will be introduced (and sometimes re-introduced) to independent titles by QWOC that they just won’t find on Netflix.
Here are a few of the titles we are looking forward to checking out: Continue reading #SupportBlackLezBiz – @SistahSinema’s @IndieFlix Collaboration
Step Three: … I Need Some Sperm
Chiiiiiile… here is the part that keeps me up at night. I always said that if I were having a baby with my partner, I would want to use the sperm from one of her relatives to give them some kind of genetic tie.
But then I looked at the cost of having a baby “the old fashioned way” vs doctor administered… and no ma’am. And unless my partner was going to be okay with me doing the deed with her favorite uncle or brother (eww), I had to rethink my master plan.
I guess the benefit of being a tarnished copper star lesbian is that hetero-sex is like riding a bike. I better find a Schwinn and pedal.1 Continue reading That’s Just My Baby Daddy…. Or Not
2015 is so close I can count the days… so I have to get my mind together for Operation Baby MSK1.
I 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.

Congratulations 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.
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.

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.
