The 1st LGBTQ History Stakeholder Forum!

The 1st LGBTQ History Stakeholder Forum!

California made a historic move by being the first state to require LGBT representation in history and social science in K-12 textbooks.

Along […]

Serving Smart Lesbian Commentary Since 2010

From my very first Epochalips post in June 2010: “This is the day I’ve been waiting for. This is the day I’ve been working toward. This day is the culmination of all I’ve ever done, said, thought, dreamed of, hoped for and planned. It is here, it is real, and it is mine now. It’s […]

Fabulosa, the Fab West Coast Women’s Festival!

Fabulosa, the Fab West Coast Women’s Festival!

The first Fabulosa I attended in 2012 was a chance for me to face my fears. I had heard great things about it, and wanted to go, but none of my friends were up for it. I hemmed and hawed, and even pulled my car over halfway there—almost turning back. But I soldiered on, not […]

Love and Goodbyes

Love and Goodbyes

I’m headed off on a big trip! Going on an Ecoquest Safari in Africa with Jody Cole. I’m on the bus watching people hugging and kissing at the airport drop off zone. I see an older couple give a perfunctory peck on the lips and  I think about the last time they might have shared […]

Coming Out For Kids

When I first agreed to go into the classroom as a volunteer speaker for Spectrum, Marin’s LGBT Center, I was terrified. What in the world did I have to say that would make a difference to these kids? I stood up there for the first time and looked into the faces of 20 teenage kids […]

2011 – Expecting the Unexpected

I don’t know about you, but I am a member of the ‘Sandwich Generation’. I have a kid in puberty and octogenarian, depression-era parents. I’ve learned to roll with the punches—and this past year was no exception. The good news is I’m past menopause and no longer living in the “House of Hormones”. 2011 was […]

Surfing through Motherhood

Surfing through Motherhood

From the Archives: Last month I was feeling a little down and impulsively booked a trip with my grown son for a week in Mexico. Running off is one of my favorite ways of coping with the devastation of the break-up of my relationship of 27 years. Max was on summer break from San Diego […]
