Leslie Feinberg and LGBTQ Allyship

Leslie Feinberg and LGBTQ Allyship

I had lunch with Leslie in the early 1990s as she was preparing Stone Butch Blues for publication. Leslie was still formulating her ideas about personal pronouns, about writing, about movements and we discussed her book and the main character from a lesbian feminist perspective.

Yoga and Anti-Semitism

Yoga and Anti-Semitism

“Ah, I used to think about anti-Semitism!” Dr. Ross exclaimed with a burst of energy as he read my response in his new patient questionnaire. “What do you think about?” was the big question. I was there to see him for my migraine headaches. My response, “Anti-Semitism,” resonated. “Thinking about Anti-Semitism used to give me […]

My Top 5 Lesbian Halloween Costumes

My Top 5 Lesbian Halloween Costumes

I’ve always been a HUGE fan of Halloween. As a child I loved it even more than Christmas. At 6 years old I fought hard to get my parents to let me wear the ‘boys’ monster costume I coveted. So, what is it about lesbians (and all queers!) and Halloween? We love to dress up. […]

Gays and Lesbians Living on the Edge

Gays and Lesbians Living on the Edge

I was pleased to hear that the Pope has formally said that gay people are okay. We are so okay that the Church accepts the fact that we can love each other just like heterosexual couples love each other. In fact, we are actually good for each other. The Pope wants Catholics to respect LGBT […]

Lesbian Humor: Best of the Battle-axe

Dear Battleaxe, I’m dating someone who I haven’t had sex with yet. But I think we are about to—any day now. The problem is, she wants me to shave my pussy because she is hair-phobic. Should I do it? Or maybe just trim the front? Dear ‘Business in front— party in back’, Sounds like a […]

The Lesbian ‘Gay Girl’ Love Tour

The Lesbian ‘Gay Girl’ Love Tour

I don’t know a single lesbian who hasn’t described someone they dated as crazy. Perhaps she was or perhaps she wasn’t but something about dating in the lesbian community always brings up that term.

A stereotype that portrays black lesbians and women as irrationally angry, […]
