Lesbian Dating: Do You Have a Bad Picker?

Lesbian Dating: Do You Have a Bad Picker?

I used to blame my tendency to be drawn to women who were vaguely disinterested in me on my first love, a boy I met just before college. Before I knew I was a lesbian, he was my Dawson’s Creek boyfriend, innocently hanging out together one summer, dealing with the drama of dysfunctional families, not […]

Lesbian Fiction: Life in Post World War II NYC

Lesbian Fiction: Life in Post World War II NYC

Oh jeepers! I was wearing a red dress. I’d forgotten that everything in Sardi’s is red or maroon. The walls, the banquettes, the seats, the menus, the awning outside. As I worried about how to get out of my red dress without being noticed, Juliana came through the door, stepping feather-light on Sardi’s maroon carpet. […]

The True Queer Spirit of Halloween

The True Queer Spirit of Halloween

Why do Gays and Lesbians love Halloween so? Celebrating Halloween was a longstanding tradition in my family growing up in Northern California. As a child I was allowed to run free—dressed as a monster or in some sort of boy-themed costume. Candy was like money, a commodity that involved trading and counting. The joy lasted […]

Coming Out in the Classroom

Coming Out in the Classroom

When I first agreed to go into the classroom as a volunteer speaker for Spectrum, Marin’s LGBT Center, I was terrified. What in the world did I have to say that would make a difference to these kids? I stood up there for the first time and looked into the faces of 20 teenage kids […]

Lesbian Harvest Moon Insights

Lesbian Harvest Moon Insights

October is the month of Libra. One of the two months of the year when the emphasis, astrologically, is on relationships. Libra is other centered, and classically much happier in a relationship than not. Though Libra will “go to the ends of the earth” to make a relationship work, she is by no means a […]

Is Having Sex Really That Important?

Is Having Sex Really That Important?

In my personal quest to affirm sexual intimacy for lesbian couples, I keep hearing “Why?” If two women aren’t having sex, and both are okay with that, why is there a problem? Maybe sex just isn’t that important to them. Well, yes, if this were true, it would be true. There is no rule that […]

Lesbian Humor: Butch Up!

Lesbian Humor: Butch Up!

I love butches! Most of all, I respect them. Unlike their femme counterparts, they don’t get to pass. As a self-proclaimed out lesbian femme aggressive top — TMI — I was teased once by a very butch girlfriend that she didn’t want to go around with me because everyone would know that she was gay! […]

Lesbian Relationships: Different Lenses

I am standing on the shoreline of a lovely beach in Maui, carefully reading the signs (hoping to avoid a repeat of what was almost was my last vacation in a surfing accident).

How to Make Manatee Memories!

How to Make Manatee Memories!

I have had the incredible honor to swim alongside manatees for over 40 years. It began in the summer of 1969 when I saw my first manatee while fishing in the Gulf of Mexico near Clearwater, Florida. My father and I stood waist deep in water when something dark and large emerged next to us. […]
