In 1999, Jane Clark played a recurring nurse on Chicago Hope. This lead to a role on Ally McBeal. Her part- a nurse. Then came Grey’s Anatomy and Private Practice where, yes, she played… the nurse. Obviously not a woman to be pegged as the actress who plays a nurse on “that show”, she has […]

Awards Season – a Lesbian Feminist Perspective

Awards Season – a Lesbian Feminist Perspective

I am one of those people who pulls down her shades, turns the phone ringer off and tweets to only a select few in a circle of friends who watch awards ceremonies on television. I know I’m supposed to be too political, too lesbian, too mature, too sophisticated but I love watching. It started when […]

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. Perhaps this movement started because baby boomers are quickly reaching old age. I don’t know, but it makes little sense to […]

Valentine’s has […]
