This makes me so happy. I know Stuttering John Melendez personally. It’s been a few years since we’ve talked, but I didn’t know he had a lesbian daughter. The best part is the fact that he loves her unconditionally. Some of you may say, “duh, she’s his daughter,” but I can’t tell you how many horror stories I hear every, single day about parents disowning their kids when they come out so this warms my heart. Greta Melendez and her girlfriend Lily Cohen have been named homecoming queens of Calabasas High. Greta said, “Actually seeing your school, which has made you feel bad about this, seeing them do a 180 turnaround and change their minds, that was the most amazing thing I’ve ever seen.” Keep paying it forward girlfriend, you are doing big things. CONGRATS girls. (Greta’s on the left)
A woman named Bernadette Coveney-Smith, is a wedding planner that specializes in same-sex weddings. She did something great and necessary. She started an affordable line of suits and formal wear, called Fourteen Style, to fill the void that lesbians and Trans men were feeling. Bernadette said, “Custom suits usually start around $2,000 and up, so for many people it’s cost-prohibitive. It’s not like there’s a David’s Bridal for lesbian suits.” Love it. Check it out here.
