Monica Palacios: A Lesbian Packing Primer

Monica Palacios: A Lesbian Packing Primer

Packing for a trip is painful. It’s equivalent to shopping for bras—you gotta do it, there’s a lot of huffing and puffing and eventually your nipples get pinched—and not in a good way. It takes me all day to pack. I put stuff in my suitcase then I take stuff out. I try on clothes […]

The Queer Señorita is Sick of Being Sick

The Queer Señorita is Sick of Being Sick

The last time I had the flu Roosevelt was president. I was always bragging: “I never get sick.” Well two weeks ago, I came down with a hard core case of influenza to the max. When your hair hurts–you know it’s bad. On Monday I was super exhausted, on Tuesday I was coughing all day […]

‘Carol’ is Caliente!

Who needs a stripper on a pole when you can experience the most exquisite sexual build up between two people in the history of film with the new period drama Carol. Our girl Cate Blanchett does an outstanding job as 1950s socialite Carol Aird, a woman who is going through a bitter divorce as she […]

San Francisco State! Go Gators! Any Gators in the house? Let me tell you how I got to my cable car college. I was a freshman at Yuba College in northern California—you have that confused look on your face. It’s the city college in Marysville—you still have that confused look on your face. I really […]

San Francisco, Mi Amor! The 80’s: Queer Comedy, Taquerias, The Castro, The Mission, Mullets & Shoulder Pads So Wide You Could Fly! I first saw Monica perform as one half of the ‘Only Latin Female Comedy Duo in the Universe’  alongside Marga Gomez. It was 1985 at Fanny’s in the Castro, where I lived with […]

A Vivacious Lesbian Vegetarianista

A Vivacious Lesbian Vegetarianista

I became a vegetarian for a dame. I know—the things we do for love. But when I met this lovely lady 22 years ago, my meat consumption was minimal. I was a waitress at a steakhouse and serving grilled flesh all the time made me shiver and my nipples spin. And then one day, the […]

JLo Bites My Apple

JLo Bites My Apple

JLo kissed me in my dreams. This surprised me because I don’t fantasize about Jennifer Lopez—ever. Eva Mendes—absolutely. Tinker Bell—I mean, who doesn’t. A stack of pancakes—always. But JLo—not so much. This dream was trippy because I was my current self in my childhood home at 2061 Cinderella Lane–go ahead make the joke—”Do you have […]

Queer Señorita: Flustered In-Flight

My last experience on a plane was reminiscent of the 80’s and what I mean by that is three words—People Express Airlines. Way back in the day when you could actually smoke a cigarette on a plane and add to the already toxic inflight recycled bad breath air—you could also travel from LA to New […]

My Top 5 Lesbian Halloween Costumes

My Top 5 Lesbian Halloween Costumes

I’ve always been a HUGE fan of Halloween. As a child I loved it even more than Christmas. At 6 years old I fought hard to get my parents to let me wear the ‘boys’ monster costume I coveted. So, what is it about lesbians (and all queers!) and Halloween? We love to dress up. […]
