by, for and about Black/African Descent Lesbians*

*Beyond Bold And Brave defines Black/African Descent lesbians as a diverse community of women who are part: of the African diaspora including Black, African, African-American, Afro-Caribbean, Afro-Indigenous, Afro-Latina, Afro-Asian, Afro-European: identify as transgender, cisgender, gender non-conforming, queer, same-gender loving as well as additional identities and are attracted to and/or have relationships with women.

"Caring for ourselves is not self-indulgence. It's self preservation" - -Audre Lorde

The Beyond Bold And Brave/Black Lesbian Conferences team supports the fight against the systemic racism and injustice that's been entrenched in our country for generations. We also understand the difficulties of keeping ourselves strong while navigating the current health pandemic and political uprising. Although our plans to address "Revolutionary Wellness" during our 3rd Black Lesbian Conference were disrupted by the health pandemic, current societal urgencies require a different approach at this time. In the spirit of supporting Black Lesbian wellness, we're sharing these organizations, companies and individuals that can provide services, activities and programs to help us stay physically, mentally and spiritually centered. We hope you'll find them useful and we wish you continued strong health and wellness.
