Happy Birthday Lynnly!

Happy Birthday Lynnly!

It would have been my friend Lynnly’s 62nd birthday yesterday, June 13th, had she survived her long battle with breast cancer. She was the funniest, silliest, corniest, as well as the most intractable, capricious, argumentative and infuriating person I have ever known. Even when she got serious about things, she was rarely introspective, instead spending […]

Embrace Your Inner ‘Cranky Old Lesbian’

Embrace Your Inner ‘Cranky Old Lesbian’

Whatever you plan…it happens…if you’re lucky. I have my Medicare card and as much gray hair as any women in my family ever had. So going to the July gathering of OLOC (Old Lesbians Organizing for Change) in Oakland was both unnerving and inspiring. OLOC, founded in 1989, is the only organization devoted to old […]

Regarding Miley Cyrus

Regarding Miley Cyrus

Seriously, how are we not talking about the obvious here? This little girl was pimped out by her parents from the time she was a small child. That means that she was robbed of a normal development and all her innocence, under the BEST of circumstances. As someone who worked for 18 years on a […]

Dissecting the “LOOK” and Other Matters

Dissecting the “LOOK” and Other Matters

(A response to Trayvon Martin and a beautifully articulated piece written by Vicki Randle) That ‘LOOK’. Yeah, the one that alternatively means ‘Uh, you have GOT to be joking that you are walking up in here thinking you can be a part of this; or: ‘You’ve lost your way little lady, let me help you […]

On Race and Gender

On Race and Gender

I met some friends this morning at a breakfast restaurant in Berkeley I had been to once before. It’s a delightful little place with high quality dishes and what appears to be a somewhat high-end clientele, normally a place I really enjoy patronizing, as I’m a bit of a foodie. The first time I noticed […]

Depression is Not A Point of View

Depression is Not A Point of View

Depression is one of my realities. One that I, personally, deal with on a somewhat cyclical basis. I tell myself I am too lucky, too successful, too well adjusted (hah!) too old (or young) too fill-in-the-blanks to be feeling the way that I sometimes do about my life. Then I remember that what I am feeling is not […]

Vicki Does MICHFEST

“I’ve always worked very, very hard, and the harder I worked, the luckier I got.” ~ Alan Bond Hi fellow travelers. The luckiest girl in the world here. Last week’s challenge was many tiered: The Michigan Womyn’s Music Festival. I love this festival like no other. It’s true, as a lesbian woman musician, this is […]

On the Road with Vicki Randle

On the Road with Vicki Randle

Epochalips welcomes the lovely and talented Vicki Randle to our ranks! Hi all. I have a sneaking suspicion that when Robin asked me to contribute a series of blog posts about the life of a professional musician on the road, that she might have had something in mind like, salacious backstage tidbits, encounters with celebrities, […]

Kate Kendell Walks the Talk

Kate Kendell Walks the Talk

Kate Kendell, Esq, Executive Director of NCLR kisses her spouse Sandy Holmes in public without hesitation. We are at a fundraising event in Palm Springs, but I have no doubt Kate will exhibit PDA’s with her wife whenever and wherever she pleases, and undoubtedly at this years’ NCLR gala. This Saturday I’m heading to the […]
