Holiday Proposals!!!

'Tis the season for proposals.  Did you get proposed over the holidays? If so, we want to hear your story. Everything from Thanksgiving through New Years is acceptable.  Share your holiday proposal story with us!

Email hello(at)  Be sure to include your names (first only is OK), ages, location and how long you've been together. Also include a picture as well. Your picture doesn't have to be a picture of the proposal (even though that would be nice) just any picture of the happy couple will do.

It's Freezing

It is beyond a shadow of a doubt, bitter freezing cold out.Despite the temperature reading at 21 degrees, with the wind factor, it seems like about 8 degrees. If you are reading this blog from a warm climate, please send some sun and warmth this way. If you're in one of those states were it's a lot colder than here in the DC area, I really don't understand how you cope.

Makes me wonder about winter weddings. No, not "winter" weddings in sunny California. I'm talking about winter weddings in places like Boston or Ohio where it is cold to the bone. I've found lots of stuff and pictures online about winter weddings. Many great ideas and pictures mainly featuring straight couples (if you have any winter wedding pictures featuring same-sex couples, I would love to feature them)!

But here is some inspiration for winter weddings. I love these pictures because it makes you feel all warm on the inside :-) Enjoy!

Community Message: "Our Family" series

I received this message from the creator of, Kimberley McLeod.  A new resource for the black female queer community.  Ms. McLeod has an opportunity to participate in a series she is creating, please read below for details.  If you're interested, please contact Kimberly directly.

I am spotlighting women in the Black queer community, everyone from artists to activists, for the launch of my website, Elixher is your go-to resource for all things empowering, thought-provoking, and pertinent to the Black female queer community and experience. You’ll find everything from uplifting profiles and local events to political commentary and personal reflections and more!
I'm currently working on a series called "Our Family" that celebrates Black queer families and delves into some of the challenges they face. All names will be changed to maintain some anonymity.
I’d love to include you and family by asking a few questions via email or in-person. The goal of the series is to depict same-sex parent families in a way that's authentic and celebratory. If you would like to participate or learn more about the project, please email me at by December 17. 
I look forward to hearing from you!
