Many of you have already celebrated Pride in your communities, but a few of us still have ours coming up. It’s been interesting (both fun and stressful) reading about the family events and the return to our roots at different local festivals, and we’re excited to go to ours this […]

Link Work

It’s been a while since we really paid attention to our links here.  Funny how people get pregnant, babies get born, kids grow older all while we’re sitting here twiddling our thumbs and, I don’t know, living our lives. I just spent some time going through our link pages adding […]

Blogs Galore

I am not being a lazy blogger, because all this linking takes a ridiculous amount of time. I have been trawling the lesbian internets for you all and am discovering all sorts of new blogs and blogs with exciting news to share. So check these folks out, and tell them […]

And the Winner Was…

Perez Hilton. That’s who won the 2007 Bloggie for Best GLBT Blog. I’m not sufficiently detached to claim that I’m not disappointed at all, but I have to admit, I’m not surprised.
