KRead: Black Woman, White Combat-from the Streets to the Sand

Black Woman, White Combat-from the Streets to the Sand
Plot Snapshot:  A memoir of Eboni N. Lacy, an army reservist, who shares her experience during Operation Iraqi Freedom.

I am conflicted about this book. I could tell within the first few pages that completing it would be a labor of love. The writing is not as polished as most of the books I am drawn to and some of the experiences she shares appear to be disjointed. Continue reading

Odd Lez Out: When Did Everyone I Know Get Hitched?

Now let me say this first, I am not bitter. I am happy for all of those people that have found love (or a good substitute). I will use my frequent flyer miles for your NYC nuptials. I will hold your hair back at your bachelorette parties. I will even prepare a speech for the rehearsal dinner. I am happy happy happy FOR YOU.

Too much?

I’m just saying… when did all these life-long attachments occur? Did I miss a memo? It seems like once we hit 30…ish every lesbian has to couple up in order to make it through the winter of their lives. That came out a bit darker than I thought it would… Continue reading

Life without the Planet: KWord Guide to Lesbian @Meetup Groups

Gay MeetupAs most of us know, in the last few years, the lesbian “scene” has shifted from a familial/clannish one to one heavily integrated** into the mainstream. Long gone are the good old days of a lesbian bar. Kit has probably sold the Planet, Maud’s has had its last call, and the Palms… ok well it is still around. Scratch the Palms.

For many of us, if you want to meet a nice lezzie (or two) you have to hit up one of the monthly events by your local lesbian promoter, or put your networking skills on hyperdrive at annual events like Pride, Her WinterParty, Sweet Heat or Aqua Girl. You could be like me and start your own dinner club with likeminded lesbians… but there has to be another way right? It’s the digital age, how do we find fellow digital lezzies?

As an answer to those questions, it seems like  meetup.com has turned into lesbianmeetup.com (literally lesbian.meetup.com). There are over a thousand lesbian meetup groups around the world, from Sapphic Adventures in Chicago to Gay Geek Meetups in the UK.

So the question shifts from, how do I find lesbian groups to how do I find the right lesbian groups for me? We came up with a couple of tips for you.

#SuperGayShorts Film Reviews: Tracks directed by Deana Williams

Once upon a time, there was a young runaway named Julie who lived in the forest. One day, the dashing and athletic Tasha walks into Julie’s outdoor hideaway. It’s a classic love story: boi meets boi. Julie and Tasha share a pure, first true love but will they be able to hang on to it?

Tracks,  by Deana Williams, explores the less than perfect love story of two less than perfect girls. Julie has a strained relationship with her mother. Tasha was sent to live with her grandmother, a fervent Bible beater, until she “changes her ways”.  Both girls seem to find the home they’re looking for in each other. This movie explores a moment in time that will resonate through the lives of Julie and Tasha forever. Continue reading
