Lesbian Filmmakers We Love: Petra Clever

Lesbian Filmmakers We Love: Petra Clever

Like most lesbians who love to see our stories on television or in film, I became a YouTube searcher a number of years ago. My fingers did the walking to a German series named Verbotene Liebe. It had a 20-year run with over 4300 episodes as a daily soap in Germany. You can imagine my […]

A Lesbian Film for all Seasons

A Lesbian Film for all Seasons

The first time I saw a photo of Patricia Velásquez‘, I couldn’t catch my breath. Stunning doesn’t begin to describe her. In February 2015, I read Velásquez’  memoir Straight Walk, discussing her struggles growing up in poverty in Venezuela and how her relationship with Sandra Bernhard made her realize she was a lesbian. This, by the way, […]

Never Too Old For The Dinah!

Never Too Old For The Dinah!

“Aren’t you a little old for that?” A friend asks in response to my Dinah Shore plan: Drink. Dance. Flirt. Repeat. With a resolve that only life’s hardest lessons can bring, I smile slyly and nod. “Yes. Yes I am.” Later, as 7 friends and I, all in our late 30s, drive along I-10, I replay […]

Can a Pill Cure Lesbian Bed Death?

By now you’ve probably heard about “the new female Viagra”:  Flibanserin, marketed under the name Addyi, promising to deliver sexual desire in pill form.  The pharmaceutical company had a clever marketing slogan: Women deserve equal treatment for sexual issues.  Who could argue with that?  And could this be the magic pill that moves two women […]

Important LGBT History in ‘Freeheld’

On Wednesday night I attended a special screening of Freeheld at the Castro Theater, benefiting NCLR. It was packed with lesbians—SURPRISE! I was reminded of the time I saw the premier of Desert Hearts at the Castro in 1985…you could have heard a pin drop during some of the intense scenes. While I can’t say […]

Pick On Someone Your Own Caliber

Pick On Someone Your Own Caliber

It is noon on October 8th and I just turned on the news. It is a day, so far, to celebrate. No one has walked into a mall, a school, the streets of a major city, or a church and unloaded their gun on innocent people. With the nearly daily reports, one could get de-sensitized […]
