Embrace Your Inner ‘Cranky Old Lesbian’

Embrace Your Inner ‘Cranky Old Lesbian’

Whatever you plan…it happens…if you’re lucky. I have my Medicare card and as much gray hair as any women in my family ever had. So going to the July gathering of OLOC (Old Lesbians Organizing for Change) in Oakland was both unnerving and inspiring. OLOC, founded in 1989, is the only organization devoted to old […]

On Toni Morrison and Ntozake Shangé

Part 7 of a conversation between Feminist icons Margie Adam and Jewelle Gomez: JG: I really like writing about anything before the 60s – partly because there aren’t that many people alive who will complain.

Radical Feminism and Spirituality

Part 6 of a conversation between Margie Adam and Jewelle Gomez: MA: You and I came of age in the feminist movement and in the radical feminist community – grew up there – you on the east coast, me on the west coast. I remember Kay Gardner and Z. Budapest talking about the Goddess. Both […]

“Shut Your Faggot Mouth!”

“Shut Your Faggot Mouth!”

Part 4 of a conversation between Margie Adam and Jewelle Gomez: Margie Adam: I think of the part of the play (Waiting for Giovanni by Jewelle Gomez) where Richard Wright walks offstage hurling a vicious comment: “Shut your faggot mouth!”  In both performances I attended there was an audible gasp in the audience. I think […]

Margie Adam & Jewelle Gomez: Part 3

Three Blocks from My House – A Lifetime! Jewelle Gomez: I was lesbian from my childhood. I always knew I was a lesbian and I couldn’t quite figure out what I was supposed to do with that. Margie Adam: What does that mean: “I always knew I was a lesbian?” Jewelle Gomez: I just knew I […]

Sex, History & Lesbian Outlaws

Sex, History & Lesbian Outlaws

Jeanne Cordova‘s new book, When We Were Outlaws is hard to put down. I feel like I hardly have time to read books anymore, as my IPhone seems to demand more and more of my attention. But Outlaws captivated me from start to finish. It is one of those books that made me feel a […]

Lesbian: Going All the Way – Part 2

Lesbian: Going All the Way – Part 2

When I came out in the sixties, “coming out” meant reinventing the world. It meant blowing a hole in the constricting walls of homophobia in my personal life, in my culture and in American politics by living out my woman-loving ways each day. It meant clearing a new and shining path in the world with […]
