When they came together, everything changed!Married for 33 years and the mother of three grown children, Patricia leads a comfortable life. But one day, she crosses a line into the arms of a woman. Once there, she can’t ignore the emotional intensity she’s discovered. Within three months, she leaves her husband to live with her lover. Facing family and friends who are bewildered and disturbed, Patricia begins to question much of what she has always believed. Confusion permeates her sleep, and night after night, she awakens trembling with uncertainty. Trying to regain balance, she turns to gay and feminist books and publications. But the ideas she finds there further disrupt her sense of self.Then she meets Carol, a sixty-nine-year-old woman who knew from the time she was a child that she was lesbian. A friendship blossoms as Carol tells Patricia the story of her closeted life during the 50s and 60s living with and loving woman. Their conversations are lively with the wit of the elder woman and thoughtfully reflective as Patricia grapples with the consequences of her impulsiveness.Spirited and sensitive, Between Two Women illuminates fundamental questions about the changing nature of love and relationships.

In this collection of poems and very short stories, two generations of one family take us from the dairy to the diamond mine via the nearest Odeon, in the company of a Passover ghost, a Victorian bride… and a toddler on a quest for potato waffles. — ‘Fascinatingly maps the journey of a family, the goings and comings, the past and the present. These three related writers offer the reader a fresh way of seeing’ – Jackie Kay In this collection of poems and very short stories, two generations of one family take us from the dairy to the diamond mine via the nearest Odeon, in the company of a Passover ghost, a Victorian bride… and a toddler on a quest for potato waffles. ‘Both sides of our family originally came to England from Russia and Poland around the turn of the last century, to escape persecution as Jews. It’s not surprising that ancestry, migration and acceptance are preoccupations for all of us, alongside themes of place, loss and the passing of time. We have all written about love… and disaster. And perhaps an outsider viewpoint and sense of humour come through here too’ – from the foreword by the authors Maureen Sandler and her husband Phil lived in south Manchester when their daughters Helen and Rosie were growing up and have since retired to an 18th-century cottage in Derbyshire. Maureen has been a member of Manchester Poets and their performing sub-group, The Metre Readers, as well as Wirksworth Writers and Scarthin Writers. Helen Sandler lives in north London with her partner Jane. She has published two novels, Big Deal and The Touch Typist. In 2008 Helen set up Tollington Press to bring out new writing by women. She is a regular compere at Bar Wotever’s alternative cabaret nights. Rosie Sandler lives with her husband Andrew and their two young sons, Robert and Thomas, in Essex, where she runs Maldon Art Trail. A founder member of The Skylarks writing group, Rosie is working on her first novel for adults, The Double Life of James Fitzpatrick, while seeking an agent for her supernatural children’s book, Rare Sight. All three authors have been published in magazines and anthologies. More info at www.helensandler.co.uk

Taking the media’s heat for Nation’s Oil is Corporate Communications Director Cathryn Mack, an old pro when it comes to spinning the facts in her company’s favor. Stuck in Duluth to handle the press during eight weeks of cleanup, she finds a silver lining when Stacie Pilardi pops up on SappHere, a mobile app that locates nearby lesbians. Stacie is smart, funny, sexy as hell, and wants a long-term relationship as much as Cathryn—which is to say, not at all. It’s a perfect arrangement until they realize they’re rivals—Stacie is head of the Clean Energy Action Network, in town to protest the greed and recklessness of oil companies and the havoc they wreak on the environment. It’s best for everyone involved if they end this, and that’s exactly what they intend to do. Eventually. Lambda Literary Award Winner – KG MacGregor

Learn what resources are needed for lesser-recognized LGBT health issues Most literature that explores LGBT health issues concentrates on HIV/AIDS while leaving research studies on other vital issues lacking. Current Issues in Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Health addresses this inadequacy by presenting a broad range of LGBT health issues from an interdisciplinary and mixed-method perspective. Leading experts present both quantitative and qualitative descriptions of health issues among various population groups, focusing on those topics poorly represented in present-day literature. This book is a strong start to fill in the blanks about unrealized health issues of LGBT individuals and offers insights into the resources needed to address them. Methods to assess sexual orientation and gender identity are not normally found in most population-based research. Because of the diversity within the relatively small LGBT population, research has been forced to generalize, making it less likely to effectively contribute to quality health issue data for these individuals. The research presented in Current Issues in Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Health takes particular care to specify how the orientation and sexual identity of study participants was measured. This book carefully mines previously unrevealed health disparities among LGBT populations across a broad spectrum of diseases—beyond the standard focus on HIV/AIDS. The most current and important studies are presented, including rare research on transgender health issues. The chapters are extensively referenced, and several include figures and tables to clarify and enhance understanding of the information. The wide range of topics in Current Issues in Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Health include: the inclusion of sexual orientation questions in research studies comparison of mental health issues between women of different sexual orientations mental health issues among men of different sexual orientations and HIV status in Australia the impact of sexual identity distress and social support in GLBT youth issues transgender youth health issues female-to-male (FTM) transexuals’ experiences accessing health care research on LBT domestic violence survivors health needs of male-to-female (MTF) transgenders of color Current Issues in Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Health is crucial, thought-provoking reading for researchers working in LGBT health, public health professionals working in community health and LGBT health, policymakers, advocates, public health and community health faculty, and students interested in LGBT health issues.

Whether in or out of the closet, gays and lesbians played an essential role in shaping studio-era Hollywood. Gay actors (J. Warren Kerrigan, Marlene Dietrich, Rock Hudson), gay directors (George Cukor, James Whale, Dorothy Arzner), and gay set and costume designers (Adrian, Travis Banton, George James Hopkins) have been among the most influential individuals in Hollywood history and literally created the Hollywood mystique. This landmark study-based on seven years of exacting research and including unpublished memoirs, personal correspondence, oral histories, and scrapbooks-explores the experience of Hollywood’s gays in the context of their times. Ranging from Hollywood’s working conditions to the rowdy character of Los Angeles’s gay underground, William J. Mann brings long overdue attention to every aspect of this powerful creative force.
