Colors Of A Woman

Our lives and our stories consist of many colors.

The Mission

My stories are my colors.

I have been through so much in my short amount of time on this earth. So much of which connects and colors the fabric of all of our lives.

My hope is that through my stories, other might find their voice, too. That they will find the strength and feel the permission to release their most intimate vulnerabilities as well.

Your voice is important, your stories are important.

About The Author

Kelly Leilani

Vulnerability has not always been my strength. Growing up gay conditioned me to hide – most especially, to hide my pain. I have found purpose in writing. It has allowed me to share my struggles, my triumphs, my heartbreaks, and my darkest of moments for the first time in my life.
