A few years ago I was having drinks with some friends when one of them couldn’t open her bottle of juice. She was really struggling with it, so me and my friends were looking at her with great amusement.
When we’ve been laughing long enough, I sighed and took the bottle from her. “Ohhh, just leave it to the lesbian”, I joked and opened the bottle for her.
We immediately heard ‘Leave it to the Lesbian’ had a certain ring to it. I knew I had to start something using that name.
It wasn’t until a year later that I used the name for a fashion label. I designed a logo and waited for orders to come in.
I have many talents, but marketing isn’t one of them. I mean, I know how it’s done, I know what to do, but I don’t enjoy doing it. I have more fun in coming up with the texts and designing them.
In short, selling clothes just isn’t something I want to do.
Another year later I found myself restyling my website, using the same name and logo: Leave It To The Lesbian.
So what can you leave to me, then? Other than opening bottles, that is.
Well, Leave it to the Lesbian to design, to write, to photograph, to make videos, to tell stories.
And I’m also a teacher, presenter and a coach for online and offline editors. So you can Leave it to the Lesbian to give you new ideas. Or to learn something.
Here on this site you’ll find a few examples of my work, with more to come.
