Lesbian Writers Series

The Los Angeles Times has an article on the Lesbian Writers Series, a reading event started in 1984 by A Different Light owner Ann Bradley.

“This silence was very toxic, humiliating and ultimately degrading,” Bradley said. As a result, she started her showcase at the bookstore with one rule: If you read at the Lesbian Writers Series, your name was announced on the publicity materials. You couldn’t hide in the closet.

In related news, Newsweek reports that Lynne Cheney’s lesbian book Sisters, is going to be re-released. No word yet from the Vice President’s wife about how the book meshes with her husband’s stance on gay matters. Newsweek link lifted from Maud.
