When I was a young kid, I started a diary. The reason I began the diary was that I'd been told I was moving - again - and I was furious. The first entry, I think, was the incredibly frustrated promise: "I will never make my kid move all the time!" It turns out that's probably not going to be a...

My husband and I are going to be the godparents of a little girl who is scheduled to arrive in October. She's the daughter of two of our favourite people, who - for the purposes of this blog - I'll describe with simple labels that can't entirely encompass a couple so awesome: one is bisexual, the...

Perhaps the most written about personality in history is Jesus Christ, and yet despite the plethora of ink that has been spilled on the subject of this person, the very mention of His name can excite very different emotions. Some love Him with all their hearts as their Lord and Redeemer, others use...

As one person recently asked, "Did...

When I was an undergraduate at Vanderbilt in the early 90's, I let Jesus' people convince me I was to be pitied. I needed forgiveness and mercy and a special dispensation. I was "struggling" with my sexuality.  Next Thursday, September 1, I'll return to my alma mater and read from my debut...

If you're expecting a piece about half-naked women frolicking in the surf or making out with each other on the sand, you've come to the wrong place. Hot as they may be, those are not the kinds of destinations I'm looking for these days when I research my next lesbian vacation...for our family...

Remember dating? And that most awkward of moments, the end of an evening when it was clear not everyone had enjoyed the experience equally? Your date would ask the question, "What are you doing next weekend?" And, instead of saying "avoiding you," you'd stay pleasantly vague....

During my college days my roommate Mayra Suarez, whose family immigrated from Cuba, would bring back her grandmother's delicious black bean and rice, fried plantain bananas and fried pork to share with me.  That was the extent of my knowledge about Cuba, until the Mariel Boatlift in 1980, when...
