We had the good fortune of connecting with Kelly & LaToya Duncan and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Kelly & LaToya, how does your business help the community?

When you think about love and it’s most valuable traits you as an individual often find yourself in a daze or in a state of warmth and happiness. You automatically display this feeling at work, in your life. with your family, in your business, and in friendship.
This is what we found in each other that became the driving force in our life. Martin Luther King said “Darkness cannot drive out darkness, only light can do that, hate cannot drive out hate only LOVE CAN DO THAT.. LOVE, through our forum, we display love and love is what draws people to us, with the idea that they too can have what they desire without restrictions. The more we display healthy love the more life becomes easier for a struggling person, who is afraid to express to their family that Love comes in all forms. Where people are no longer afraid of their truth , the community wins. Our platform is not to just display lesbian love but to EMPOWER LOVE, to say that we can do ANYTHING.

Alright, so for those in our community who might not be familiar with your business, can you tell us more?

Our vision to show the Black (L)GBTQIA community in a positive light is what sets us apart from the others. Our page @black.lesbian.love features beautiful couples from all walks of life and their positive representation for the LGBTQIA youth and those struggling with the idea of having a beautiful healthy relationship. We remember wanting to share our love and not having a platform to do so… so we started our own.

Our merchandise at black-lesbian-love was created to show our pride, that our LOVE is BLACK LOVE TOO and it matters.

We feature proposals, weddings, maternity photos, family photos, home ownership, singles every Friday and we’ve been very successful in connecting our followers with their soulmates. We would have to say that is what we’re most proud of and excited about.

It was not easy getting to where we are but every post that shows our community in a positive light is worth it all. We overcome our challenges by reminding ourselves of what we’re doing and how many lives we’ve touched.

We’ve learned that we can’t change the world but we can be a safe place for our community to show their love.

We want the world to know that our LOVE is BLACK LOVE too.
