Lesléa Newman and the Mystique of Lesbian Sexuality

Lesléa Newman is a Jewish femme lesbian, and the author of Heather Has Two Mommies, The Femme Mystique, and Pillow Talk. She celebrates lesbian women who embrace the “traditional” femininity that both the straight and gay worlds have often denied them. Her perspective celebrating femme helped to end a time when the lesbian community had aggressively embraced androgyny in presentation and behavior, part of a backlash against the “straight-seeming” butch/femme identities that had been omnipresent before about 1970....more

Fateful Move

Actually, I was happy to move out of that apartment. I had my mother move in the last six months of my lease, to help with the loss of my salary. We were both miserable. My mother is generally a miserable sort, and with me having what she perceived to be “a great life” – she only became more miserable.  But, in general, that apartment cost so much money.  Years later I discovered that my electric bill was handled by a third party because of some spam email that I had received and clicked onto....more
