New York State of Mind – Rights Not Rites

New York State of Mind – Rights Not Rites

Congratulations to all who worked so hard and so long to bring Marriage Equality to the empiric state: those who stood vigil in Albany, those who lobbied the halls, those who changed their minds, those who wrote checks, those on whose shoulders this victory stands. I’m still in a NY pinch-me state of shock. First, […]

Let Love Out!

Let Love Out!

My brother-in-law, Chris Priolo, was a shining light in our family. He was a passionate, gifted composer and teacher, who was one of those guys who was larger than life; everyone wanted to be around him and hear what he had to say. That’s why he was such a great teacher – his classes were […]

May your Holidays be Mary and Gay!

May your Holidays be Mary and Gay!

I went into my son’s freshman high school class last week as a member of the Spectrum’s LGBT Speaker’s Bureau to help dispel myths about LGBT people and to educate them about the consequences of teen bullying by sharing my story. It was 8:00 am and the kids just stared blankly, with their mouths agape.  […]

The Good, Bad and the Ugly—and the Psychotic

The Good, Bad and the Ugly—and the Psychotic

I am a constant reader. When I read fiction I like to be taken out of myself and my everyday existence, to be whisked far from those with whom I am familiar. I like to visit worlds I would otherwise never inhabit, populated by people I would otherwise never encounter. I like a variety of […]

The Lesbians in the ’70s Conference

The Lesbians in the ’70s Conference

I want to share some impressions of the “Lesbians in the ’70s conference” which took place October 8-10 at the CUNY Graduate Center. The conference took place over two almost unbearably intense days. The joint was packed, and not only with lesbians from the ’70s; lots of young, or younger, women were there to learn […]

An Unlikely Clash of Culture

An Unlikely Clash of Culture

I came to live in the US some 25 years ago, in the earnest belief that there would be no racism in my new country; I believed that this America was the greatest and most free place on earth.  Clearly my impression stemmed from the context of an apartheid South Africa and an America subscribing to economic […]

Halloween – The Great Gay Holiday

Halloween – The Great Gay Holiday

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 for us, a commodity that involved trading and counting. The […]

Lesbian Going All the Way – Part 3

Lesbian Going All the Way  – Part 3

I am 63 today and I am involved in a passionate relationship with a 41-year old woman. Being a lesbian is still about holding a space for woman-loving in my personal and public life. It is still about the heady first kiss-this time between two women on a moonlit Hebridean beach. It is about the […]
