Lesbians vs Trans: A Rallying Cry for Unity

Lesbians vs Trans: A Rallying Cry for Unity

Transit of Venus is a film about grieving, about how we are haunted by people and events in our lives that we can’t control. And our need to let go. My oldest and dearest lifelong friend, a beautiful, strong, loving and funny artist was a trans woman who took her own life and this is my […]

Three Ways to Deal with Heartache

Three Ways to Deal with Heartache

A few weeks after 9/11 I was sitting at an outdoor mall watching some children running through a fountain, squealing with delight. Their laughter was so contagious that as time went on the adults sitting in the area began to smile too. I looked around and it occurred to me that this was the first […]

Lesbian Midlife Chronicles

Lesbian Midlife Chronicles

One year ago, I had an epiphany.  I was enjoying a long lunch at Cafe Zoetrope with my dear friend (and honorary auntie who I’ve known most of my life), Rita.  Rita has lived for 25 years in a rent controlled, 3rd story walk up in North Beach, with expansive views of the east bay […]

Sex and Body Image

Sex and Body Image

When I ask women to rank order the most negative influences on their sexual relationships, negative body image almost always tops the list.  They mean “feeling fat.”  True, some women worry about their breasts and hips and skin and other body parts, but by far the major self-criticism is about weight.  One woman summed it […]

Lesbian Startalk for May- Taurus

Lesbian Startalk for May- Taurus

May is the month of Taurus, earthy, practical, sensual, materialistic and security-oriented. Taurus is persistent and can be stubborn, like all the fixed signs. It’s the sign of few words, unless the chart contains some of the personal planets in Gemini or Sagittarius. The first and second weeks are relatively quiet, astrologically. Thursday, the 3rd […]

Lesbian Startalk – April Aries

Lesbian Startalk – April Aries

Aries is the first sign of the zodiac, the cardinal Fire sign, and therefore a leader with an adventurous pioneer spirit, courageous with a blunt and direct manner. Aries people start a lot of projects, but seldom complete them. They need a lot of activity and will eventually explode without it. The “me first” attitude […]

Lesbian Lunar Insights for February

Lesbian Lunar Insights for February

February begins amidst eclipse season.  So, as I begin, I have to mention again the total lunar eclipse on the last day of January, said by some not to have occurred with a Blue Moon, not to mention Super, for 150 years, aiding our dormant seeds of creative potential to ripen and be ready for […]

On Being Femme, on Being Butch

With a nod to popular feminist novels of the 1970s, Femme Confidential tells the story of three Gen Xers as they navigate the shark-infested waters of love and desire. Veronika, whose primary dating criteria is hotness, embraces the role of mean girl—until she has a baby. Liberty, the daughter of leftist Quaker hippies, is quick to […]
