Alix B. Golden started her life as a Carolina Girl, but matured into a Georgia Peach. This freelancer dishes on sex, relationships and dating often revealing more than she should about her own life. Read more from her at A Brown Girl.
This all happened accidentally.
I had a personal blog that I had been forced to relocate. I was freshly single and my ex was very comfortable with reading my thoughts in my blog. I wanted to be free to write, minus the self censorship. That’s how A Brown Girl Gone Gay came to be.
When I chose the name of my blog, A Brown Girl Gone Gay, I wanted it to be easily recognized as a blog written by: A) a person of color and B) a lesbian.
I really never imagined that people would be interested in the intimate details of my life. I didn’t see myself as the typical lesbian or the typical person of color.
Let me explain who Alix is.
I do a little writing. I can also be found with paint brushes in hand. I like to browse museums. In an hour’s time I can listen to NAS, N.E.R.D, and Gavin DeGraw. I wear a steadily growing afro. I think glasses are sexy. I speak proper English. And I believe in complete reciprocity in my relationships. Roles do not exist in my world.
I’m great, right? (I’m single, btw). All of those traits make me the uniquely great individual that I am, but it made me wonder if anyone could relate to me.
I wrote anyway. Often revealing more than I should. Definitely more than I was comfortable with. I often surprised myself. Especially when I found myself describing the most intimate of moments.
My life should come with it’s own disclaimer. Once you’re a part of it, be prepared. I will write about it. Maybe that’s why I can’t get a date?
