From this place our love has grown...
Welcome to the virtual home of The National Gardenia Society, a network of purpose driven women committed to the success of lesbian women in pride communities across the nation. We are a sisterhood of accomplished women dedicated to promoting positive fem visibility, serving our LGBTQ family and enhancing our life experiences through unique, member exclusive, travel and wellness centered fellowship.
For we are friends to our sisters and to our community.
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 aim is to enhance the visibility of successful feminine lesbian women of color. To create a social and service network of prominent lesbian women across the nation. To provide the necessary opportunities for lesbians who value the importance of pride, culture and women's empowerment to convene. To maintain a sisterhood built upon integrity and pride where its members can grow and inspire change within the LGBTQ community.
“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
The National Gardenia Society is a garden of sisters bonded by purpose and integrity. We have committed ourselves to a lifetime of building better women, with love, through trust, in unity. Sisterhood is more than just a word, it is the foundation of who we are and at the root of everything we do.
