Serving Smart Lesbian Commentary Since 2010

Serving Smart Lesbian Commentary Since 2010

From my very first Epochalips post in June 2010: “This is the day I’ve been waiting for. This is the day I’ve been working toward. This day is the culmination of all I’ve ever done, said, thought, dreamed of, hoped for and planned. It is here, it is real, and it is mine now. It’s […]

Monica Palacios: A Lesbian Packing Primer

Monica Palacios: A Lesbian Packing Primer

Lesbian Dating: 3 Ways to Deal With Rejection

Q. My problem with dating is that I don’t know how to end it.  Last time I went out with someone, I knew after the first date that I wasn’t attracted to her…but she acted so interested and I didn’t want to hurt her feelings, so I went out with her for several weeks. We […]

My Top Seven Do’s & Don’ts for Dating Women

After divorcing, jumping the fence, and dating for a while, I began wondering why most of the people I went out with disappeared after the first date. I started reading self-help books, where I learned about something called emotional sobriety. This meant I needed to create healthy boundaries and rules for myself around dating. One […]

The Lost Art of a Lesbian Painter

Every once in a while a documentary comes along that is so splendid and breathtaking that it is hard to even explain the impact it has on one. I felt that way when I watched Finding Vivian Maier for the first time and the many times I came back to it. Now comes Susan Anderson’s […]

Don’t Miss BETTY in Berkeley on March 23rd!

Think about a Pride weekend from years past, back to a time when you colored your hair for fun and not to cover the gray. Chances are the band BETTY was on stage. Or when you subscribed to Showtime so you could watch “The L Word.” Every week you heard BETTY. Been to the Michigan […]

Falling In Love for the 2nd (or 3rd) Time

Falling In Love for the 2nd (or 3rd) Time

The woman in my office was in tears.  She’d just had a romantic Valentine’s Day celebration with someone she’d been seeing for the past year.  They had talked about the thrill of finding each other, the joy in their intimate connection, the excitement about sharing their lives.  It sounded just like being in love.  So […]
