Oh, to talk about love, the choice to love, the ability to choose, the reminder that we all get to choose.
The president of the Lavender Club stated, “I am what I am. So take me as I am. No one can escape from their individuality.”
Love is love and as a culture we need to move forward, irrespective of gender. Not all romantic love occurs between straight women and straight men and there are so many alternative forms of love that are important and beautiful, including love for our children, grandchildren, pets, partners and friends.
Freedom can only be true where all communities possess equal rights. We may have a long way to go, but we certainly have come a long way from where we once were.
The Lavender Friends Club is a group of lesbians, gays, bisexuals, transgender and those in friendship who reside in beautiful Sun City Lincoln Hills, California.
Our primary goal is to create, and sponsor social gatherings and events that will appeal to the broad base of our members who enjoy getting together with others and sharing quality time and their experiences. Equally important is our goal of supporting one another and offering service to our community.
We believe that strong communities begin with solid relationships and our primary purpose is to build a greater sense of community through social interaction, open communication and shared information.
