You know them; you know their work. You've laughed with them, cheered with them, admired them, and been in awe of them. Now renowned humorist Shelly Roberts (Roberts Rules for Lesbian Living
) reintroduces you to a who's who of lesbian glitterati as you've never seen them before--as children! This collection of photographs from the earliest days of our lesbian leaders is enchanting, humanizing, and hilarious, and it reminds us that whoever we are, once we were all children. Before she was elected to the U.S. House of Representatives, Tammy Baldwin faced the cameras wearing little but an utterly beguiling smile. Before founding Spinsters Ink, Joan Drury found her belly button.
The irrepressible publisher, editor, and writer Barbara Grier displayed an early gift for grabbing attention. And Essence
magazine executive editor Linda Villarosa shows clearly that she has always been the epitome of poise. Toni Armstrong Jr. gets wet, Alison Bechdel looks very serious, Nicole Conn butches it up, Tee Corrine goes Hawaiian, Lillian Faderman curtsies nicely, Carole Midgen hits the beach, and Patricia Nell Warren rocks out. From first pets to first dress, summer camp to the baseball diamond, get a glimpse of these women and others, including Lesléa Newman, Suzanne Westenhoefer, and Sheila James Kuehl as they were before they became larger than life.
