The 2nd Annual Black Lesbians Matter Memphis "Unapologetically Visible"
Time & Location
About the Event
Black Lesbian Matter is a one day event designed to a create a safe space to express our needs, figure out how to address them and build community. Additionally, information about black lesbians – who identify as transgender, cisgender, gender non-conforming, queer, same-gender-loving and are attracted to and/or have relationships with women – is limited. The little data that exists about us – where we live, what health issues we face, how much we make, etc. – is largely anecdotal and narrow in focus…There is a lot of research about gay men, but almost none exists about black lesbians.
Black Lesbian Matter Memphis will serve as a place to start gathering data about us and the issues that affect us.
