Bi-Visibility Week

It's Bi-Visibility Week! For those not familiar, this is a week set aside to recognize the 'B' in the LGBTQA+ community. We celebrate the gays and the lesbians, the trans, the queers, and even the non-binary, but when it comes to the B-word, many shun them, even going as far as the brush their sexuality under the rug. I've written about this before in another blog where I was promoting my new book Bi-Satisfied. Since it's sometimes easier for women to claim  their bisexuality, I'd like to focus on the men, the black bi-sexual men.

They have the hardest time coming out with their sexuality. Quiet as kept, on some fronts, being a gay black man is more acceptable than being a bi-sexual black man. In the Black community, people don't be believe a man can be bi-sexual. He's either gay, straight, or living on the down-low (the DL). In the Black community, if a Black man has hinted around to being even remotely attracted to men, all hell will break loose. This is why it's so important that we be open minded and allow bi-sexual black men to live in their truths.

So this is the week set aside to make the invisible, visible. If you have any bi-sexual friends, take them out this week for drinks and dinner. Or invite them over to have a small celebration. Celebrate your bi-sexual friends, both male and female. Because even during Pride, an event set aside to celebrate the LGBTQA+ community, bi-sexuals are often invisible. This week is about celebrating those who are often denied  their rights to live free, out and in the open, most times even within the LGBTQA+ community. Happy Bi-Visibility Week!

Live in your truth so that you may be happy even when others try to make you invisible.

YOUNG but Grown...Womanish: A Review

So, I finally got a chance to read and finish YOUNGbut Grown Womanish. Out of all the books I’ve read by Mrs. Menchan, the Womanish Series is my all-time favorite. No other author I’ve read has the ability to tell a series of short stories the way she does. The way she starts the stories draw you in instantly and you just have to keep reading to see how it all ends…or in some, cases how it all begins. How she is able to capture the whole essence of a story in just a few pages is something not many can do. No one tells a series of unfortunate—and sometimes fortunate—events like she does.
From Delva Wright and her philandering husband to Damon and his…let’s just say free spirit wife all the way around to A and Fredo and his sister, Sand, I was intrigued and entertained. Nothing tickled me more than the end of the story with Marbra though. She was still too dang giving. LOL! I felt a little sad about Sara and I hope she is doing better wherever she is. I don’t know what to say about Gert…

Ambivalence & No Instructions: A couple of reviews

Okay, so, I know it's been a while since I've done a book review. Hey, a girl has been busy. However, I finally took the time to gobble up two books. I decided to do a little something different this time around so I picked up Ambivalence & No Instructions by Muhjahid Qahhar. I'm quite glad I did. Both books were well written and kept my attention from start to finish.


So I'm going to kind of give two reviews in one. Book one, Ambivalence introduces us to Tenaka, who has just been released from a long government funded vacation, aka prison. Tenaka has a friend, and I use "friend" lightly, Twan, who seems to be a cool guy, right? LOL! He's a good guy...the same way Chucky was in the movie Child's Play. Draw your own conclusions here.


The one thing that drew me in to Tenaka as a character was his unwillingness to see young black women in peril and do nothing about it. I knew from that moment on, Tenaka would be a favorite character of mine. Fast for…
