I kissed John Travolta – Tori

When you grow up Baptist and your first experience is assault, it can seem a long way back to a joyful and open road. Tori’s innate strength and confidence allowed her to expose her abuser, defend herself against him, save his life, and reclaim her own.

Tori is a 46-year-old cisgender female. She describes herself as Black, mostly straight, currently monogamous, and in a relationship. She grew up in the Black Baptist Church and describes her body as plus size.

You can find Tori online at toriwestonwriterartist.com, and on Instagram at @toriwestonwriterartist.
