about our lifestyles and culture via FemmeNoir.
Though FemmeNoir's content is geared primarily toward lesbians of
color, we also introduce you to non-lesbian identified women of color
who serve as positive role models in our communities and our content
will provide information we can use as women, such as gardening, home
life, cooking, finances, fashion and sports.FemmeNoir is designed
to build self-esteem through our history and culture; to encourage
a more powerful self-concept via the bridge called our sisters backs
who are "doing it" in the communities; and to provide a
platform for lesbians of color to express themselves at a time when
information truly is power on this information superhighway.
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."
