Comments from TTC members about The Topaz Club:
-"The Topaz Club has opened my eyes to the wondrous diversity of life, not divided
by colour barriers."
-"TTC has provided support, insight, and a platform for discussions such as race,
personal care, the arts, politics, and the media."
-"I don't always have time to look at the TTC boards, however, everytime I do,
I read something interesting, something that makes me go "Hey, I get that too," something that makes me realize that I'm not
-"Joining TTC has been one of the most fun and interesting activities I have participated
in for some time. TTC truly feels like the sisterhood that it is even though we are in different locations. One
of my favorite things to do during the day is to check my e-mail to see if there is anything posted from any of us.
I've met new friends and learned a lot of different things that I would have never had the chance to do otherwise. TTC
is not a cybergroup! It is a real and physical entity."
-"The Topaz Club has been an influence in helping to instill a stronger sense of
pride in my being a mixed race woman - amongst and with other women who are like me. I wish I had this resource when
I was growing up, but I'm proud that it exists for me today. It is one of the most diverse groups I have ever belonged
to. There is truly a feeling of comraderie and sisterhood within the TTC circle."
