My First Lesbian Experience

My First Lesbian Experience

I felt attracted to girls at a very young age. I came from a large family in the Lake Minnetonka area of the Twin Cities and every morning in summer we kids were released after breakfast to explore the neighborhood around the lake. I would often be alone, preferring to fish on the dock by […]

Who is Ms. Wonderful?

Who is Ms. Wonderful?

She probably already lives in your very own building. She is always smiling in your direction—or haven’t you noticed?—walking her heavily betesticled mucho masculine dog. You certainly have noticed in passing her tall dark and handsome sartorial elegance. You avert your eyes in the hallway, you show no apparent interest. You dare not even make […]

“Shut Your Faggot Mouth!”

“Shut Your Faggot Mouth!”

Part 4 of a conversation between Margie Adam and Jewelle Gomez: Margie Adam: I think of the part of the play (Waiting for Giovanni by Jewelle Gomez) where Richard Wright walks offstage hurling a vicious comment: “Shut your faggot mouth!”  In both performances I attended there was an audible gasp in the audience. I think […]

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, […]

Our Tribe of ‘Soul’ Sisters

Our Tribe of ‘Soul’ Sisters

Brought together by an idea for a documentary by Marina Rice Bader, and shot by Andrea Meyerson and her crew, a fabulous group of women gathered in Mid-July at the lovely home Marina shares with partner Nicole Conn. The gang was all there: Elaine Sturgess,  Shirin Papillon, Cathy Brooks, Fontessa de Ridder, Barbara Niven, Melanie […]

Tosh Point No

There seems to be a finite amount of freedom to go around.  They gave some to the gays, so they’ve had to cut some from another group.  Sadly they’ve had to take some from the ladies.  Women are the new gays. The takebacks include defunding Planned Parenthood, defunding contraceptives, de-personhooding women and other schemes to […]

What Gays Do…On Vacation

I love my uber-friendly dentist’s office. They are totally moderne and pain-free in every way. The doctor loads up his iPod with cool tunes and docks it in his sound system. He could have a show on a west coast public radio station with his eclectic mix of rock, folk, blues and jazz. The receptionist/scheduler […]

From Betty to Olivia

From Betty to Olivia

When “The Feminine Mystique,” Betty Freidan’s seminal book arrived in the mail, it turned me inside out. I expected a how-to book on glamour – a  feminine “mystique” – refining  the ancient art of Allure/Glamour/Gorgeousness – how to put on make-up and look sexy. Right? What else would an unsophisticated 22 year old new immigrant […]

Why For Art?

Why For Art?

As many a preteen, I used to entertain myself for hours, drawing, designing fashions (in retrospect, hideous fashions) for improbably shaped girls with triangular heads. Don’t ask. I was interested in the doing more than the result, which is actually, for me, the best way to create. It is the in the best interests of […]

When Worlds Collide

When Worlds Collide

Once again disappointment humps my leg.  It’s still early but so far this summer I have not been invited to one Higgs boson Discovery party. And I have an amazing outfit.  Not to give it all away, but I had consulted with several Lady Gaga designers. Do people not know how amazing the discovery of […]
