Ladies and gents, meet Chastity D. Kirven representing Dallas, Texas.

Chastity is being featured as a Lesbian I Love thanks to her friend Brea who took the time to email me about the work that Chastity is doing in Dallas.

Brea writes:

Hi, first of all I would like to say thank you for giving us a voice and allowing us to hear your thoughts and comments on things around the world. It is very inspirational to me to see the things that you are doing and accomplishments you have achieved. Your women of the canyon idea is great!! I’m starting a workout group here in the Dallas, TX area and send everyone to your website to get motivation. Hopefully we have just as much success as you have with the weight loss. Now back to why I’m sending this e-mail. Well one of my buddies here in Dallas is doing great things. She has been an advocate for the LGBT community here by helping out with meals for low-income people with HIV/AIDS, making a film, and writing her most recent book. I would like to suggest her for your Lesbians I Love list. Again, Thanks so much for your website and relentless effort in providing us a voice.

Best Regards,
Brea Gates

What in your opinion are the biggest issues facing Black lesbians and our solutions if any?

Our struggle with spirituality and our sexuality because it is very hard in our culture to break the taboo of being gay. I think once you accept yourself and understand God made you the way you are, then it’s easier for others to accept you.
