Hi, four of you who are still reading this blog! I’ve been remiss. Or rather, I’ve been busy writing to sustain my Nutella habit and haven’t had time to write for “funsies,” unless you count my journal, which is honestly just a list of food I’ve consumed because I’m dealing […]

I wrote you another letter. I am trying to do this more. But I think it’s mostly going to people’s spam folders. Hopefully not. Here’s an excerpt to convince you to subscribe: I filled in for Alexis Coe’s column, Read Local, this month. The vagina compliment comes from a girl I […]

I’m Not Napping

I was on Dan Savage’s podcast this week, the Savage Lovecast, talking about whether bisexuals need a new label, per the Alternet/Salon piece I wrote about the subject. My favorite part is when he says to read my advice columns if you want to cheat on his. Monogamish advice sharing, […]

In 1972, two lesbian friends, Mary Ellen Cunha and Peggy Forster, bought Twin Peaks Tavern on the corner of Market and Castro streets. “The girls,” as they were known, didn’t realize that the act of opening a gay bar with windows would be a historic act. At the time of its unveiling, being […]

Love Letters to San Francisco: Twin Peaks

I thought she was beautiful because she saw the world in close-up. We watched the sun set in the Outer Sunset and even though it was scarf weather, we ordered frozen hot chocolate and sat in the damp sand and played with the bleached crab carcasses. She didn’t marvel in […]

When I searched for “inspirational quote” this week on Twitter, the above 2 Chainz graphic came up. I’m always looking for inspirational quotes, even though many of them are terribly cheesy and/or don’t make sense.
