“STRAIGHT”… BUT NOT NARROW LADIES™ (SBNNL)

We curate safe spaces for bi, curious, queer and sexually fluid women of color. Our events, workshops, retreats, coaching, membership community and travel experiences offer an integrative approach to cultivating and enhancing relationships that is transformative for women of color. Studies have shown that feeling socially supported can make a significant difference in our mental health, regardless of how much socializing we’re actually doing.

At SBNNL, we use our events, retreats, workshops, coaching, and travel experiences to empower women of color to lean into their authentic selves and explore on their own terms. Through these experiences, SBNNL members develop more meaningful relationships with themselves, potential or existing partners, and other like-minded women of color. We are a collective of like-minded women who offer each other advice and support, have common goals and want to live life unapologetically. 

Our vibe is just different!

AS SEEN IN: 

If it isn’t obvious, I’m fascinated by the complexities of relationships and the intersections of race, gender, and sexuality. At the end of 2019, I founded SBNNL as a place for “straight” passing Black and Brown women of all relationship statuses to feel seen, be heard and make meaningful connections in real life. For many years I struggled with cultural stigmas, taboos, microaggressions and stereotypes around race, sexuality, sexual fluidity, and sexual expression while living the heteronormative stereotype. Today, I’m unapologetically embracing my authentic self while rewriting my narrative and challenging others to do the same! I curate spaces for like-minded women because they don’t exist and we deserve them.

DID YOU KNOW? 

01

Studies show that only about 20% of adults that identify as bisexual have shared their sexual identity with those they’re close to. In contrast, about 75% of gay and lesbian adults say the same. 

02

Bisexual people comprise about half (52%) of LGBTQIA+ people in the United States. Research also finds that a substantial percentage of Americans experience attraction to or have had sexual contact with individuals of more than one gender, even if they don’t identify as bisexual.

03

Many Black and Brown women are not openly out or secure with their sexuality. At SBNNL, the security and comfort of our members is a priority. We recognize the stereotypes, stigmas, and taboos around women’s sexuality. As such, we exercise discretion with our members. We don’t post any member photos without express permission, and we offer a chat app that allows interaction without sharing personal info. 

04

There isn’t much of a dating “scene” for bisexual women, especially for Black and Brown women. Aside from apps, there are few opportunities to meet women. There are even fewer social activities and safe spaces. SBNNL fills that void by curating virtual and in-person events and experiences to bring like-minded women of color together.

05

Often, bi, curious, and queer people grew up in households where sex and sexuality were not discussed. This has led to feelings of confusion, shame, and misunderstanding. At SBNNL, we have learned that lack of conversation and understanding around these topics is a cultural and generation issue for many Black and Brown women. To help with this, we curate safe spaces in the form of workshops and discussions on the topics of sex and sexuality for women of color.

06

Many bi, curious, and queer people don’t feel like they can be their whole selves in their relationships with families or friends. They fear revealing deeper parts of themselves to their partners, family and friends because of stigma, stereotypes, and taboos around sexuality. SBNNL. To provide a safe space for connection, SBNNL members have exclusive access to a chat app that facilitates dialogue and discussions about all kinds of topics. The app also has private messaging, video call, and audio call functionalities. Members have formed wonderful friendships and connections through this powerful tool.

07

Struggles with intimacy are common for men and women. These struggles show up in their friendships, family relationships, and intimate relationships. People of Color are taught at a young age that leaning into emotions and being vulnerable is a weakness. In addition, many women are taught to believe that sex is a tool to keep a man and tend to lose themselves in relationships while neglecting their own pleasure and self-care. SBNNL is here to ease these struggles. G’s coaching, workshops, and retreats take an integrative approach to addressing the intricacies and intersections of dating, relationships, intimacy, sex, and sexuality for women and couples.

It’s hard out in these streets! 

We created SBNNL to address these issues and offer women of color a much needed space to be themselves, laugh, grow, learn, make new friends, and feel empowered and supported along their journeys.

"I found a new community of like-minded women of color [SBNNL] and I have to shout them out because it’s not easy navigating this world when everyone is put in boxes and made to think that’s all there is. There’s more to us than meets the eye. We can all be our whole selves if we lay down judgement and preconceived notions about people. Just live!"

“The topics discussed in the [SBNNL] chat [app] and the ease and quality of the responses is dope.”

“Definitely a trip for the books. I learned something about myself [during Girls Getaway Weekend].”

“I definitely learned some new things about myself this weekend [during Girls Getaway Weekend]. This space is so important and necessary.”

“Thank you for this group! It’s hard trying to find people open and willing to live their truth.”

“Love the ongoing education!”
