Awards Season – a Lesbian Feminist Perspective

Awards Season – a Lesbian Feminist Perspective

I am one of those people who pulls down her shades, turns the phone ringer off and tweets to only a select few in a circle of friends who watch awards ceremonies on television. I know I’m supposed to be too political, too lesbian, too mature, too sophisticated but I love watching. It started when […]

Lesbian Dating: Avoiding the ‘Bad Apple’

Lesbian Dating: Avoiding the ‘Bad Apple’

The rotten apple spoils his companion – Benjamin Franklin I am sitting around a restaurant table with several friends, sharing tales of our worst relationship ever. The stories, including my own, are of verbal and physical abuse, infidelity, drama, inappropriate boundaries with other women, lying, emotionally pushing away and then pulling back in, and more. […]

Lesbian Valentine’s Day Do’s and Don’t’s

Lesbian Valentine’s Day Do’s and Don’t’s

I was talking to my niece and nephew in Germany about holidays and gifts. The holiday “tyranny,” we like to call it. We have all stopped giving gifts to each other. “But the girls,” my nephew remarked, “they want gifts because it’s romantic.” Christmas is barely over and there’s the next gift-holiday approaching. Valentine’s has […]

A Long Lost Lesbian Daughter

A Long Lost Lesbian Daughter

In 2010 I started watching Lisa Kudrow’s PBS show “Who Do You Think You Are?”. As an adopted person, I was suddenly awakened to the desire to figure out who I am. Now don’t get me wrong, I absolutely adored my parents. If there is an adoptive lottery, I won the multi-million dollar mega-millions. So, […]

Lesbians: Find Some Joy on Valentines Day!

Lesbians: Find Some Joy on Valentines Day!

Valentine’s Day is approaching, and that’s a mixed blessing.  If you don’t have a lover, you can feel like a loser.  If you have a partner who’s no longer a lover–you’ve drifted into asexual “friendship”–you may feel a painful loss of passion.  Even if you have a lover, you may feel stressed about getting the […]

Lessons in Lesbian Film Crowdfunding

Lessons in Lesbian Film Crowdfunding

In September of 2014 I decided to create a non-profit fiscal sponsor crowd funding organization. I have become well aware of the nail biting, gut wrenching, nose to the grindstone things that lesbian producers, directors and writers have had to do in order to literally squeeze dollars out of friends, family members and fans in […]

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 […]

Is Lesbian Dating is Like Football?

Is Lesbian Dating is Like Football?

I sit across the bar table from a friend one Sunday afternoon, surrounded by TV screens showing football games. “I don’t know how to date,” she tells me, exasperated. I shove a tortilla chip in my mouth, not surprised the conversation has turned to dating. I nod in agreement and offer, “If you think about […]
