“When in doubt… #give.”

Thank you to Anthony Jordon for his kind words and recap of my 2nd Annual Giveback Kickback!

Check out him out here.

My Words, My View

That was the start to the invitation for the 2nd annual Giveback Kickback And BBQ, coordinated by birthday girl, journal entrepreneur and great friend Kristi King. This style maven and socially conscious individual started her annual tradition in 2015 where she invites friends to “kickback” with a birthday cook out, while encouraging attendees to bring a specific number of items for donation to the needy. The number corresponds to her age (which I’m not sharing because it’s rude to share a woman’s age without her permission) :).

“No presents requested but we will be making…care packages for the area homeless.”

This no doubt was beyond a feel good moment, sharing good times, food and fellowship with newcomers and some previously familiar faces. Thank you Kristi for being you; the inspiration and a caregiver within out unique world. We need more examples like you to shine on. Check out the…

I also make custom orders and requests, which is super fun. If you are interested in that check the FAQs below. Continue reading Shop the K Word

20-something Magazine Covers Featuring Lesbians of Color

All this talk about magazine covers, starring folks that won’t be name, got us to thinking —  Aside from Ellen, where are the lesbian cover girls?

A few keystrokes later, I found an autostraddle posting called 100 Awesome Magazine Covers Starring Lesbians. As awesome as they indeed were, one thing jumped out at me…there were very few lesbians (or bisexuals) of color.

So with a little luck and a lot of google, I have found 20(ish) magazine covers featuring lesbians of color. Take a look. Which covers are we missing?
