Leslie Feinberg and LGBTQ Allyship

Leslie Feinberg and LGBTQ Allyship

I had lunch with Leslie in the early 1990s as she was preparing Stone Butch Blues for publication. Leslie was still formulating her ideas about personal pronouns, about writing, about movements and we discussed her book and the main character from a lesbian feminist perspective. (Please see her partner MinnieBruce Pratt’s discussion of Leslie’s pronoun […]

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. […]

My Jersey Shore

My Jersey Shore

My first ‘long term’ college relationship lasted almost three years. Annie was a sailor born and raised on the Jersey shore.  Her last name was Italian, but her world was in a universe very different from the popular cable TV show.  Her Sicilian American father held the highest civilian security clearance in the local military […]

Genderqueer is Not Transgendered

Genderqueer is Not Transgendered

When I say I hate labels, and I prefer not to wear them, most people have a tendency to turn up their nose. I have never truly understood why my not needing to identify as ‘something’ makes me an outcast. The only thing I truly identify as is genderqueer, but not as a label, more […]

What’s up with MEN?

What’s up with MEN?

“Let every man be respected as an individual and no man idolized.” Albert Einstein I’m a Lesbian Feminist, which means—to me—that I’m mindful of male privilege in our culture and believe it my social responsibility to educate and be an activist around the harm that patriarchal privilege creates and sustains.  War, rape, bullying, stock market […]

The Lesbians in the ’70s Conference

The Lesbians in the ’70s Conference

I want to share some impressions of the “Lesbians in the ’70s conference” which took place October 8-10 at the CUNY Graduate Center. The conference took place over two almost unbearably intense days. The joint was packed, and not only with lesbians from the ’70s; lots of young, or younger, women were there to learn […]

Banding Together Against Bullies

Banding Together Against Bullies

There seems to a generational thing about how well lesbians and gay men are to get along. Certainly not as a general thing because there are exceptions of all sorts. But among people older than me there seems a strange tendency to distrust the other species. This always struck me as strange given that the […]
