About the Creator

“I’m a lipstick lesbian that lives in NYC. I’ve been with my girlfriend for six years but we don’t even live together. I guess the UHaul truck didn’t feel like picking us up. I enjoy writing when I’m not designing clothes.”
This Lesbian Life About page

I wouldn’t normally comment on a creator’s shortcomings, but it should be noted that this creator is racist, biphobic, and frankly just mean. I read her entire blog to confirm this. It’s honestly some of the worst remarks I’ve read. Even her recent “I’m not racist of biphobic” post is incredibly racist and biphobic. I say this because this is the most recognizable lesbian flag as of this writing. But there are many, many other options. We as a community can and should to better than supporting a creator who does not support the whole community
