ELIXHER Turns One!
Queer women of color site celebrates anniversary with after-work event
BROOKLYN, N.Y. – On Wednesday, April 4, ELIXHER will commemorate its one-year anniversary with SKIN, an after-work affair for women who love women and friends. The event will take place at Beso, 370 Lewis Avenue, Brooklyn, N.Y., 6 – 9 p.m., and will feature music, drink and food specials, giveaways, and, of course, Brooklyn sun-kissed skin. The event is open to the public and there is no cover.
“I created ELIXHER out of a void I witnessed,” says creator Kimberley McLeod. “As a Black queer woman and journalist, I noticed the lack of images and stories that spoke to my community and my experience.”
ELIXHER is proud to say that by sharing stories in columns like “InspiHERed By
” which spotlights phenomenal women in the Black queer community and “Our Family
” which celebrates two-mommy families, it has brought the world closer to recognizing our magic and multifacetedness.
“Since our launch in March 2011, we’ve grown immensely thanks to our readers,” adds McLeod. “Their unwavering loyalty has propelled ELIXHER forward.”
