Traveling with Olivia Changed My Life

Traveling with Olivia Changed My Life

I kvetched all the way out the door. “It’s too soon, I can’t DO this”. My friends told me to shut up and get on the plane...

Olga Murray and the Nepal Youth Foundation

Olga Murray and the Nepal Youth Foundation

This week, a remarkable woman was on board with six hundred lesbians on Olivia’s Turkey and Greek Islands Cruise. Her name is Olga Murray and she can teach us all some new insights about how women can make a difference in other women’s lives. When she was in her early sixties, she was trekking in […]

Get ‘Rocked by Women’ this Mother’s Day!

Get ‘Rocked by Women’ this Mother’s Day!

Supporting our local queer culture is important to me, so when I heard about Rocked By Women, a multimedia dance performance by Sarah Bush Dance Project coming to Oakland on May 9 and 10th, I reached out to my friend Sarah Bush to tell us what this show means to her: “The show is a […]

Olivia Changed My Life

Olivia Changed My Life

Ok. It sounds corny, even ridiculous. But a series of lesbian vacations changed everything. My life had gotten pretty small. I turned 50, my wife of nearly 30 years left, the kids were growing up, my best friend died of cancer and I got laid off from my big downtown job. Blah blah blah. Major […]

In 2014, I Will Watch Every Lesbian Film!

In 2014, I Will Watch Every Lesbian Film!

Every year I make a set of New Year’s resolutions. And here it is December 2013 and as far as I can tell, I did not get taller or thinner. I did not go on an Olivia cruise, read the Diary of Miss Anne Lister, religiously peruse every Epochalips article nor did I watch all of the […]

Diana Nyad has proven that it’s possible to do anything we set our minds on. Diana lives by Mary Oliver’s famous words “What will you do with your one wild and precious life?” When I arrived at Olivia Travel’s week at Club Med Ixtapa a day late, I was horrified to find out that I […]

The Rock Star Room? No thanks…

The Rock Star Room? No thanks…

As  a proud owner of Olivia, I enjoy “VIP” status when I travel to places Olivia charters. Once a year I indulge a lovely habit of going with a friend for a restful time—off season in a half empty hotel on some magnificent tropical beach without Olivia. I am always ambivalent to go without the […]

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 […]

‘A Perfect Ending’ World Premier!

‘A Perfect Ending’ World Premier!

Every once in a while there is a special love story captured on film that really speaks to my heart. But, as a lesbian, 99% of the time I have to use my imagination to enjoy love scenes (with opposite sex lead actors) and find them sexy. Simply put, there are not enough lesbian love […]
