I know i'm not the only person on this island who identifies as a person of a minority sex, sexuality &/or gender identity &/or gender expression.

There is little to no public visibility of us folx in this little community, though any Lopezian would probably acknowledge that they know (of) at least one gay person, if not a trans person. (I identify within the trans spectrum, so if you know me, you know a trans person).

I am hoping to co-create and cultivate more community connections, develop peer-based support systems and services, from the practical to the sacred, among folx who also wish for such kinship. I crave this. I need this. Do you have some ideas and inspirations?

If you are interested, feel free to answer here or contact me directly. Let's get together and spread some rainbow sparkles together.

Diversity is strength, Jaina Bee

It takes all kinds to support a healthy, diverse community. Straight allies who are willing to speak out, as you have, and stand with people of different kinds are valuable members of such a community. Charolette's post, below, speaks of a Gay.... Read all
