"It’s been hard distinguishing the usefulness of my β€œgut” when it’s been informed by trauma." This!!

Thank you for such a transparent essay. As a 40 year old queer femme, I connected with so much of what you wrote and I appreciate your vulnerability. So many of us hold our stories and our ruminating inside, feeling less than, unseen, and unworthy...thinking no one else shares similar experiences. Thank you for making the world a little less lonely for queer folk through this beautiful essay.

I’m so happy that this essay found it’s way to you on Love day. There’s so much left unspoken amongst our ranks in queer community, especially as Black femmes. Thank you for reading. πŸ’•πŸ’˜πŸ’–

Thank you for baring your heart to us (too). The part about trusting your β€œgut when it’s been informed by trauma” really resonated. I also find distinguishing my intuition from my trauma responses to be challenging. My go-to is to ask myself how I’m breathing. If my body feels normal but something still feels off, it’s the situation. If my body & breathing are tight, it’s usually my past. Usually, lol. Sending love πŸ’˜πŸ’˜πŸ’˜

β€˜It’s crazy to believe that all the evidence of the security my partnership has offered can leave me suspicious as opposed to comforted.’ This hit home. Thanks for writing and sharing - your words have power πŸ’˜

The depths and layers of your essays always bring me to a space of self-reflection and unearthing that which I shall no longer carry in my own life. Thank you.

"Queer Black Love is futurity" I love this. I also really appreciate the vulnerability of this article. It is hard sometimes to understand how someone could love us so. It almost seems like a trick. But OH How wondrous it is to be washed in love. Hope you both are feeling deeply and joyfully today and always.
