Overview

Lesbian writers reveal stories of their travels in these twenty literary pieces set around the world. West Africa, Kathmandu, Russia, Israel, Chile, and many other fascinating destinations form the backdrop to a rich variety of women's true adventures. Whether dealing with partnership, self-discovery, foreign political issues, or love and sex, these stories capture some illuminating facet of what it means to travel as a lesbian woman.

Audre Lorde experiences a wakening in Mexico where she finds a women's community and a love affair. "It was in Mexico that I stopped feeling invisible. In the streets, in the buses, in the markets, in the Plaza, in the particular attention within Eudora's eyes." In "Beds" Judith Barrington humorously handles the Question in hotels in France with her partner: a room with two single beds or a double? Susan Fox Rogers explores how travel can open up the traveler as she voyages to Alaska with her father and converses in ways not possible at home.

Regardless of their destination, lesbian travelers can find in this volume the perfect traveling companion.

Eighteen lesbian travel writers share their experiences abroad in this excellent collection. Sure to enrich any journey, this collection features adventurous essays on Gaza, Nepal, Alaska, and many other destinations.
Beth Neering
More travelogue than travel guide, Lesbian Travels: A Literary Companion is a smart collection of stories form lesbians on the road. . . Many of these stories are serious, but they're also fun, sexy and full of adventure. . . lush language and the accompanying personal dramas make Lesbian Travels a delight. -- ForeWord Magazine
