As we enter Black History Month, we pause to reflect on & honor the stellar Black vulva owners who are making strides to break down barriers & fight for a future where everyone, everywhere is afforded the rights, respect & resources to thrive — in sex & love, health & wealth.
We like to think it’s fate that Black History Month coincides with the month of love. It’s obvious that both holidays encourage us to go that extra mile when it comes to expressing our appreciation for the people who matter and have made an impact on our lives. But the truth is, we need to make conscious efforts to express (and receive!) that love every single day.
We'll host more conversations all month long, so follow along for more resources.
