A Dirty Little Secret

“I thought I was the only one,” the stranger said in a low voice. It wasn’t 1957, or even 1977. It was last week, at the grand opening of a supermarket in town. He was gray-haired, tall, dressed like a ranch hand. His smile was sheepish, his eyes conspiratorial. He wasn’t talking about finding a […]

Why Lesbians are Defined by Our Sexuality

Do you have an “Affectional Preference for Female Companionship”?  Hey, world, big news! Gay people are more than our sexuality. I am really, really tired of the focus on the third syllable of the term homosexual. It’s annoyed me for fifty-four years that I am defined by one part of my humanity. Please tell me why, […]

Remembering Orlando & Gay Freedom

Remembering Orlando & Gay Freedom

So here I am, trying on men’s dress pants for the Golden Crown Literary Society Awards ceremony, and I keep thinking of the photos of our people in Orlando. They dressed up too in their best freedom clothes, also anticipating an evening of togetherness. I’m grateful to be alive and able to gather with other […]

The Link Between Old and Young Dykes

The Link Between Old and Young Dykes

The only information I had on old gay people when I came out was that we were doomed to be alone and thus miserable. Oh, and lesbians would have leathery skin while gay men would become pitiful predators. At least, that’s how old perverts were portrayed in the pulps, and in non-fiction about criminology and […]

How to Answer Questions About Gender

How to Answer Questions About Gender

Where do little kids get their urgent need to know my gender? Is it intrinsic, some part of survival of the species? Parents should at least teach them that their question is rude. But no, the parents are as unsettled by what they perceive to be gender non-conformance as their children. That leads to bullying, […]

Find Happiness in a Cheeseburger Pie

The threat of atomic war overshadowed my generation. On May 8, 1945, Winston Churchill announced VE Day, the end of World War II in Europe. On September 2, 1945, after horrendous destruction, Japan formally surrendered, ending the war throughout the rest of the world. I was born September 9, 1945 into a world free of […]

Why Gay Bullying is Not “Just Teasing”

Why Gay Bullying is Not “Just Teasing”

I never put this in words until recently: I’m afraid of children. Crazy, right? Unnatural. Just plain dumb. About a month ago, while still digesting that news flash from my brain, I had a related revelation which was brought on by all the recent talk about bullying. Here goes: I’m afraid of children because of […]

Still Butch After All These Years

Still Butch After All These Years

My body is telling me to slow down, even while my mind says go, go, go. When was the last time I climbed a tree, a favorite younger pastime? Now I simply admire them and the birds that flit from Shore Pine to Western Hemlock to Ornamental Cherry. It’s funny how I thought I missed […]

Lesbians Join the Fitbit Craze

Lesbians Join the Fitbit Craze

With the new year comes the new resolve. With the new resolve came the Fitbit. After knee replacement surgery last year I was given a painkiller that made me constantly nauseous. That took care of the first ten pounds I needed to lose real quick. Since it was awhile before I could swallow anything other […]
