MobileHomeComing LOVES Detroit!!!!

We are on our way home from Detroit and we are SO in love with the Black Queer Brilliance overflowing in that beautiful inspiring city! Whew! Special shouts out to the visionary sisters of SPICE for allowing us to experience the depth of healing, support, laughter and love of their first Friday discussion group and for dancing it up at the KICK high tea dance party fundraiser on Saturday, and to June and Treva for allowing us to witness their profound love for each other and their family! We love y'all SO much! Thank you for the love and inspiration and thank you especially to Kimberly Jones for organizing both of our visits! Can't wait to come back!
