That Time I Opened for Etta James

That Time I Opened for Etta James

When I was just starting out in comedy in the 80’s I was hitchhiking in San Francisco one night, yup – me and Aileen Wournos – the last lesbian hitchhikers on the planet.  I very luckily got a ride from Lupe De Leon the manager for Etta James, Kenny Rankin and Tania Maria. I made him laugh […]

Lesbians Ponder the Mysterious Clitoris

Lesbians Ponder the Mysterious Clitoris

I remember at one point actually BELIEVING the theory of Freud’s “vaginal orgasm”. And when I finally realized the ridiculousness of it, I had to chuckle. It’s time we educate all girls about the wonders of their magical “for pleasure only” organ — residing deep inside their bodies. “Picture a clitoris in your mind. Got […]

Coming out at 54: A Sweet Mid-Life Surprise

Coming out at 54: A Sweet Mid-Life Surprise

I grew up in a social and religious subculture where my family, community, school and church, exemplified the traditional expectation that boys and girls grow up to be husbands and wives. They have babies—who in turn grow up, and it all “naturally” starts over. As a young child, same sex coupling never crossed my mind. […]

Happy Birthday Lynnly!

Happy Birthday Lynnly!

It would have been my friend Lynnly’s 63rd birthday yesterday, June 13th, had she survived her long battle with breast cancer. She was the funniest, silliest, corniest, as well as the most intractable, capricious, argumentative and infuriating person I have ever known. Even when she got serious about things, she was rarely introspective, instead spending […]

Lesbian Dating: Three Ways to Have More Fun

Lesbian Dating: Three Ways to Have More Fun

I am driving down the freeway during my lunch hour, leg propped up against the door, window down. It’s a beautiful afternoon. I should be having a coffee and walking along the beach, I think. I sigh, glancing over at my to do list for this hour: Target, Trader Joe’s, car wash. Glancing back at […]

Dangerous Times Require ‘Radical Hope’

Dangerous Times Require ‘Radical Hope’

Almost immediately after the election—which I’ve come to think of as the Zombie Apocalypse—I received an email from novelist Carolina De Robertis. She was inviting authors of all types to write essays (in the form of letters) which would be part of an anthology called Radical Hope: Letters of Love and Dissent in Dangerous Times. […]

8 Ways Lesbian Relationships Fail and Recover

Most of us have had the sad opportunity to reflect on how relationships fail. Whether you’re currently in a floundering relationship, or just ended one, or have been single forever because you’re afraid of failing again—at some point you ask yourself “How did we go wrong?” And, even more painfully, “How did I go wrong?” […]

Communication – Listen More, Talk Less

Communication – Listen More, Talk Less

The June influences begin with the New Moon in Gemini on May 25th. Gemini is ruled by the planet Mercury. So, this cycle is about communication. A little before the meeting of the Sun and Moon, social Venus in Aries squares Pluto, planet of transformation, in Capricorn, bringing up relationship issues, especially those involving finances […]

Lesbian Lit: Excerpt from ‘Kiss Me Again Paris’

Lesbian Lit: Excerpt from ‘Kiss Me Again Paris’

Party at the Palais Royal It was finally late enough to get on my Vespa and drive over to the Palais Royal. Emma’s parents lived on the fifth floor in Rue de Beaujolais. Emma herself had her own “atelier” in the 14th arrondissement, although she had nothing to do with art. Opening the massive, polished […]

My First Lesbian Experience

My First Lesbian Experience

I felt attracted to girls at a very young age. I came from a large family in the Lake Minnetonka area of the Twin Cities and every morning in summer we kids were released after breakfast to explore the neighborhood around the lake. I would often be alone, preferring to fish on the dock by […]
