Calling All Lesbians!

Lesbian, Lesbian, Lesbian. We don't hear enough of that word. Such a lovely word, a provocative word, a rich word.

As I've been travelling North America and Europe sharing my experience in the "ex-gay" movement for these past three years (wow, it went so fast) I feel the absence of the lesbian voice in narratives of the "ex-gay" experience.

Later this month I will present about the "ex-gay" movement at a women's conference at Sarah Lawrence College and feel hungry to know more about the experience of women who have attended "ex-gay" programs. I would love you to share some of your thoughts in the comments or to e-mail me about your experiences as a woman in the "ex-gay" movement.

Peterson, this is a question I have wondered about, too. The only thing I can really point to is how much easier it is for lesbians (and women who are bi- and are with a woman) to pass, since it's socially acceptable for women to show affection with one another in public than it is for men.
