I grew up in a time where being "in the closet" was the norm for the Black LGBTQ+ community. I’ve never subscribed to suppressing, hiding, or muting myself or the story of my experiences. Many learn, GROW, are educated and inspired by my stories; that's why I share them. I’m an advocate of story telling and a true believer that speaking and listening to personal stories can produce some of the best lessons, offer some of the healthiest advice, create greater understanding, suggest options and alternatives, and promote living a life without shame, fear, or embarrassment. In my lifetime I’ve heard hundreds of stories from individuals across the United States and I have been educated, enhanced, and empowered because I know those stories. Black Rainbow Love is a collage of our stories that should be experienced, inhaled, digested, and referenced by everyone.
