I am grateful to Laurie R. King for expressing beautifully how I am feeling today about moving forward. Please go read.
Calendar it now: Laurel Bookstore, Oakland, 2/19 4 pm, Lesbians. Really all you need to know right there. Lesbian writers talking about doing what we do in the Dark Times.
Biographies of lesbian women are rare. Your local library should have a copy of Indomitable and you can make it happen in five minutes or less without leaving your chair.
I’m rubbing my hands together in glee about this year’s Newbies on Display, err, I mean “So I Had This Idea” Panel at GCLS 2017.
It’s okay to be gay as long as you are invisible – true then. True now. Which is why reading Joan Nestle is as important today as it has ever been.
If nothing else, Go Set a Watchman’s very existence, and the hurt and outrage people feel at the idea that their beloved hero could be so deeply flawed has made us all Scout once again.
Mary Griggs shares a wonderful history lesson and a summing up of the beautiful, supportive “Wedding Week” in Alabama. Read it, it will do your heart good.
My example is from Love by the Numbers: “She loved her beautiful back hair.” I caught that in the last proof before the book went to press. Take the time to read KG MacGregor’s hilarious examples of exactly what Spellcheck won’t do for you! (Reblog etiquette – Comment and Like at KG’s blog.)
