I’m being a lazy girl cuz I have the best company in the world, but earlier today I shared this with a Femme group I belong to, and want to share it with you, too.
Two years ago this weekend, I attended my last San Francisco Pride. Tonight, my amazing Femme friend Lisa and her son are flying into Portland to spend time with my brother and me. This is the woman who, when I told her my ex informed me at the 11th hour that she wasn’t going to move back to Maine with me, said, “What day did you book the truck for? I’ll be there.” And she was. Two years ago, she flew more than halfway across the country to drive back with me, dropping and rearranging her entire life for me. My other bestie Melissa flew the other half to meet me and drive the rest of the way home with me and my cats. This is Femme community to me: two women who love me more than anyone ever has or ever will, stepping up to take care of me in a moment of great need, without hesitation. Thank you all for the community we’ve established here, and may you all be as lucky as I am, to have not one but two brilliant femme sisters who are always there for me.
