I think Our Bodies Ourselves was first printed in 1973 and The Joy of Lesbian Sex in '88
with those fabulous drawings

I remember when JoAnn Loulan "came out" that she was in a relationship with a man
And Holly Near was as well but she but never stopped performing at the women's festivals although she would be asked about it occasionally
Loulan seemed to have a much harder time of it though in queer women's community
I don't know why there was such disparity in their treatment
(even Butch/Femme was still an ongoing controversy!)-but maybe it was down to their respective communities ?

One of the best non-medical inventions:

the internet

I can find and watch almost anything : )
Now, if only there were a truly international TV site I'd be in heaven :)

that gingerbeer has become very quiet. I remember when 50 people  were on  simultaneously.  Perhaps overshadowed by Face book?
accept what is,let go of what was and have  faith in what will be

That Yahoo email has bizarre threading feature, adding conversations unrelated to new email. Gave me a shock as I thought I got some virus! Only good thing about it is that you can switch it off!!!
