Book about holistic health for ladies wants to hear your story!  »

Courtney Pool and Sarah E. Brown are writing a book on holistic health for lesbian and bisexual women (and their fans!). We are fully supportive of this awesome endeavor and thought maybe some of our readers might be into helping make the book even more amazing! Because you’re all beautiful and special and the best and lesbians or friends to lesbians. If you’re not, get the fuck off this blog!

Now, I’ll let Sarah E. Brown take it away with the details:

One of the purposes of the book is to shed light on connections between sexuality and our relationship with food and health. Our book, which we are currently in the process of writing, will discuss how coming out being a woman who loves women (or other non-normative sexual orientation) relates to body image, gender identity, emotional eating, veganism, our relationship with eating in general, and other aspects of health, including spiritual health and relationships. Our goals are to help women empower themselves through awareness, self-inquiry, and learning self-acceptance. We also will highlight how plant-based diets can help promote self-kindness as well as kindness for animals and the planet.

We want to include stories, anecdotes, and insights from other women who love women on these topics. Below is a list of various subjects women have written about in relation to being a non-heterosexual woman:

  • Body image, eating disorders, emotional eating, eating issues around coming out, self-acceptance, etc.  
  • Veganism and Sexual Orientation
  • Animal rights and LGBT rights and human rights
  • Sexual Orientation and Spiritual Health
  • Benefits since switching to a plant-based diet
  • Being vegan in a relationship (where just one of you are, or where both are)

These are just some ideas, but mostly anything along the lines of eating and sexuality as well as all levels of health (physical, emotional, mental, spiritual) and sexuality are within the scope of our work. We’re looking to keep each contribution under 300 words. We’d be happy to print your first name in the book, or, if you’d prefer, you can be completely anonymous. Thank you so much for your contributions! We hope to help a lot of people with our stories. Please email sarahbrown70 [at] gmail [dot] com to submit!
