Honey Love Connections is a matchmaking service specifically for lgbtq+ BIPOC seeking to attract love, romance, and partnership with other QTPOC. This service was created to offer a space where intentions and desire could be named, pursued, and met in a direct and supported way.
For some, romantic partnerships are the most intimate, vulnerable and long-lasting relationships of our lives. Since there is so much held and exchanged in these relationships, it makes sense to put forth considerable effort in finding a partnership that truly works for you. Choosing a long-term partner is no trivial matter and Honey recognizes the importance of these decisions and is here to provide the support you need.

Our vision is to experience a world where deep and resilient BIPOC love is abundant and celebrated.
Authenticity -- We want you to feel comfortable and confident being yourself. We encourage taking off the masks that we are sometimes tempted to put on to attract or impress people, especially when seeking romantic partnership. There are people who want to meet the real YOU.
Accountability--When you share your desires and needs around partnership with us, we will hold you accountable to that vision. It can be easy to shift our expectations or conform our desires to what others might think is appropriate for us.

Aja Trotter, PsyD
Psychologist, Consultant, & Matchmaker
Hey there, I'm Aja. I've been holding space for healing and transformation for many years, and I've recently felt called to prioritize holding space for love and intimate connection in a more direct way.
I've always loved connecting folks who I think would like each other and would often say that I'd be a matchmaker if I wasn't a therapist. I'm not sure why I thought I couldn't do both, but thankfully I let go of thinking and I'm excited to now be offering Honey Love Connection services.
I feel it's important for Queer BIPOC to have tailored support and services where they are centered and understood as they pursue love. I want to hold space for those who are looking for genuine connection and sustainable relationships with other BIPOC. I especially hope that leaning into love can be a healing and restorative experience for our community. Relationships are wealth and the more intimacy and vulnerability we experience in our relationships, the more fully and freely we get to live. The hopes and aspirations I have for Honey clients, are the same aspirations I try to live into myself. Honey Love Connections wants you to gain insight, experience healing, and find liberation through finding and growing in love.
