“We must love ourselves like our entire life depends upon it. The world is in the midst of revolutionary change and none of us actually knows what the future holds for blk abs brown ppl—-especially those of us who are gay. If ever we needed to grow up(from within), now is the time to put away foolishness and look inwardly in order to mature to our fullest capabilities and capacities. The love of self, pure and earnest love is the link we cannot afford to miss: whether single or in partnership w/a loved one. The world seems worst, but I honestly believe it’s bc we have entered a season of reckoning. It may get darker for a season, but a newness will evolved. Let’s learn to love ourselves fully and by doing so, we will organically love those whom we share our journeys with.” Blaqhomme

J. Marion Sims is called “the Father of Gynecology”. He experimented on enslaved black women in Alabama who were often submitted as guinea pigs by plantation owners who could not use them for sexual pleasure. Most of the women died due to infections.
