“We are coming into our own – our own lives, our own dreams, our own reality. We are leaving behind that which is not ours, which has never been ours. We are moving. We are moving light. We piece together what we know. We make our own patterns. We exchange with one another images that envision our lesbian reality and give us hope.
We are sharing our images in fragments. Weave them together, add your own. There is much more to be said, many connections to be made. The images we live with are changing/changing us. We see, within us, what can be. We trust ourselves, we believe in what we see. Believing in our reality, it is real.” – Lee & Vernette
