From this place our love has grown...
The National Gardenia Society was organized May 25, 2015 for the purpose of uniting feminine lesbians of color in various communities throughout the United States of America. Our sisterhood is a network of purpose driven women who take pride in promoting positive lesbian visibility and creating a safe space for lesbian women of color to thrive in all aspects of their life.
Gardenias for my SISTER because she is my FRIEND.
The gardenia to our sisterhood is a symbol of new and promising friendships rooted in integrity, pride and sisterly love.
Shoulder to shoulder, hand in hand...
“She is a friend of mind. She gather me, man. The pieces I am, she gather them and give them back to me in all the right order. It’s good, you know, when you got a woman who is a friend of your mind. “ — Toni Morrison
