A labor of love, which has grown into a mission to teach,
empower, and to share the wonder of our loves and our lives.
FemmeNoir is about community and bringing
that community closer to other lesbians of color. Whether
you live in North America, South America, Africa, the United
Kingdom, anywhere in the world, you can find information about
our lifestyles and culture via FemmeNoir.
Though FemmeNoir's content is geared
primarily toward lesbians of color, we also introduce you to
non-lesbian identified women of color who serve as positive role
models in our communities and our content will provide
information we can use as women, such as gardening, home life,
cooking, finances, fashion and sports.
FemmeNoir is designed to build self-esteem through our history
and culture; to encourage a more powerful self-concept via the
bridge called our sisters backs who are "doing it"
communities; and to provide a platform for lesbians of color to
express themselves at a time when information truly is power on
this information superhighway.
It is FemmeNoir's ambitious hope to bring information and
the ability to communicate with one another as close as your
desktop. FemmeNoir serves as a portal to other sites of
interest to lesbians of color. In addition, we will
provide original content pertaining to our community, our loves,
our lives, our music, our theater, our films, our publications,
and our culture.
Welcome to FemmeNoir, you
FemmeNoir is dedicated to the
honor and memory of Christine Adams Tripp, J.D. and was
established to continue her legacy and to her dedication and
tireless work for Gays & Lesbians of Color.
