Black lesbian dating sites Unregistered chat rooms for dating
We never had an answer, but thanks to the internet we have our own happy ending, so we really wanted to help others find theirs.Thus, in 2015 we created a dating website Find Femmes, for feminine identified lesbian and bisexual women (and the women who are seeking them).Additionally, black lesbians deal with the unique challenges of being African-American women in LGBTQ communities, in a society which prefers to commodify identity.This is an era where elected officials like Florida Lt. Jennifer Carroll can make unthinking and hurtful comments about black lesbians.Three years later, we have 1000’s of members and continue to grow daily.It’s amazing that we’ve managed to create this online community, something that was very much lacking when we were younger.Through Find Femmes we aim to provide that community for lesbian and bisexual women; whether users identify as femme themselves and looking for other femmes, or to introduce women of any identity to femmes (butches, don’t be shy).
Georgia Voice interviewed several African-American lesbians to gain insight into their lived experience.
Each of the women stressed they couldn’t speak for all black lesbians, just for their personal experience.“First,” Hartwell says,” just being a black woman is tough enough in America, but being a black lesbian only adds to it.
Although the gay and lesbian community has moved forward with our civil rights, society still views black lesbianism as taboo.
You can add homophobia to the mix, but that’s the only challenge I see that separates us from other black women.”“The only advantage I can think of,” writes Lez Intellect, “is being a lesbian allows me to look critically at black men (and men period) without the emotions straight black women experience.
I’m not looking to black men for understanding and/or affection.
