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."
