Today we continue our series of Pride Stories sharing Lyndra’s story.
Deciding to show up as my authentic self was such a huge deal for me almost 10 years ago. Although I’ve grown and changed significantly since coming out, I am still so incredibly committed to showing up every single day as a lesbian, masculine presenting, woman of color.
One of the various ways I choose authenticity is linking myself with individuals and community that reflect practices of Love, Oneness, and those who aren’t afraid to do the necessary work of LGBTQ+ visibility, social challenge and systematic dismantling. I find so much of this, and more, being done at Bodhi.
I love the celebration that my partner and I are at Bodhi. I love the celebration that each and every person is at Bodhi, but there’s something truly special about having a spiritual community that advocates for, uplifts and empowers my gay ass.
