Why We Love Glee’s Lesbian Couple ‘Brittana’

As a person who grew up listening to the songs of Broadway musicals and going to NYC at least once a year to take in four musicals in three days, I was drawn to GLEE like a voyeur to the world I dreamed of and I had buried deep inside. Yes, I have always wanted […]

Pray Away That Gray!

Pray Away That Gray!

There’s all this controversy these days about “pray the gray away.” What’s the big deal? If I could have my luxurious, silky brown head of hair back, I’d pray until my folded fingers bled.

Valentine’s has […]

A Long Lost Lesbian Daughter

A Long Lost Lesbian Daughter

In 2010 I started watching Lisa Kudrow’s PBS show “Who Do You Think You Are?”. As an adopted person, I was suddenly awakened to the desire to figure out who I am. Now don’t get me wrong, I absolutely adored my parents. If there is an adoptive lottery, I won the multi-million dollar mega-millions. So, […]

Lesbians: Find Some Joy on Valentines Day!

Lesbians: Find Some Joy on Valentines Day!

Valentine’s Day is approaching, and that’s a mixed blessing.  If you don’t have a lover, you can feel like a loser.  If you have a partner who’s no longer a lover–you’ve drifted into asexual “friendship”–you may feel a painful loss of passion.  Even if you have a lover, you may feel stressed about getting the […]
