I believe in the power of women.

When I stopped being scared of what “others” would think-I accepted myself as lesbian and took my first breath of free air.

Loving women- supporting women- this is the core of my being and why I am living this life. I give my energy to women-not men- because that is who I am. I am lesbian-powerful, strong and caring- and I believe I am creating the world I want and need by just living it.

Seeing the everyday strength of women surrounding me, I come to know that Amazons still thrive. Without that belief I would not survive.

I believe in the power of womyn.
