Sweet like Honey (SLH) is a Montreal-based grassroot initiative organizing diverse events for people who relate to the lesbian/sapphic experience and does so by highlighting local BIPOC talent, artists and small businesses. In honor of Lesbian Visibility Week, we are hosting Seasoned : A discussion on BIPOC lesbian experiences. Our panelists will share their personal experiences relating to their sexuality and gender expression. Attendees are invited to join the conversation where a variety of topics that will be covered, including homophobia, coming out, racism, religion, family, representation and finding connections. The last thirty minutes will be reserved for the attendees to ask our panelists questions.

In various forms of media, proper and healthy representations of BIPOC lesbians and their realities are rare. This can lead many of us to feeling isolated, lost, ashamed and confused on how to navigate a heteronormative world, especially with the different cultural baggage we may carry regarding our sexual orientation and expression. This discussion aims to generate representation that many seek while uplifting voices of members of our community as they impart knowledge, personal anecdotes and advice.
