ELIXHER is an award-winning, GLAAD Media Award-nominated website and magazine. It is your go-to resource for all things empowering, thought-provoking, and pertinent to the Black female queer community and experience. You’ll find news, uplifting profiles, local events, political commentary, personal reflections, and more.

ELIXHER was created by a writer and editor who after years of working in media grew tired of the lack of multidimensional representations of Black queer women. ELIXHER seeks to fill that void.

It’s time to celebrate us! Come join ELIXHER on this journey…
