Besides Aquagirl, I've never seen so many women in one place... particularly in one pool! It was almost surreal- being surrounded by so many different types of women who love women! It was fantastic! It was also great for Spectrum Wellness 360, as this was our first opportunity to be a sponsor/vendor and provide brand awareness for our services and offerings. We had a rocky start, but we managed to rock it out and had a blast in the process!
Masculine women are women too.
Despite the confusion that our appearance or attitudes may present to the heterosexual community, at the end of the day we are female- with female issues. Now, tackling these issues may require a different and more delicate approach due to the adaptation of some negative heterosexual stereotypes on gender and masculinity, but at the end of the day, ignoring these issues means ignoring our bodies, and ultimately our health. In 2018, it’s time that we as butch/ studs/stems/non-binaries/masculine-of-center individuals embrace our biological bodies and processes with a natural acceptance and educated understanding of what health and wellness means for us.
I’d go so far as to say that these health issues are even more rampant among our population of the community. So I wrote this for my fellow bois as a way to point out certain health and wellness issues that affect us specifically. At the end of the day, the responsibility of health and wellness is ours alone, and because we don’t know what we don’t know, we might be directly or indirectly affecting our own well-being.
After much anticipation, the day finally arrived for our Health, Wealth, & Wisdom VIP Full-Day Seminar! Behind the scenes, we had worked very hard and closely with our guest guru Vibe Veda to create an engaging program for the event. But what ended up happening was an organic and free-flowing day of healing and understanding, even more amazing than any of us could have dreamed of!
