What are your favourite women (and lesbian) owned businesses in or near Vancouver?

A Statistics Canada study released in March of this year found that women in Canada still earn only 87 cents for every dollar a man earns. The way I see it, women are my team, and that it’s a good thing to support one another. […]

Up to Date Lesbian Agenda for BC

Up to Date Lesbian Agenda for BC

Long time readers will recall the print and later the web versions of the Lesbian Agenda. This resource took a lot of work to keep comprehensive and up to date and I’m so glad to have found a resource with all the information lesbians need to find fun events without having to create it myself anymore.

Jude Goodwin of Goodwin Publishing and Design has a wonderful and comprehensive calendar of queer events in British Columbia, which allows you to sort out the events of interest to women by clicking on ‘babes’ in the category drop-down filter. You can also filter it by the region of BC you are in. I’ve framed it below for you to check out or you can visit What’s on Queer BC

Eons Ago

a past where womyn lived as the female head of tribal lineage
welding marked ability to act with strength, to uphold justice, and
were given to the healing arts of Gaia and those creatures dwelling
within her most loving arms
while vast prisms graced the skies
and crystals, like tiny shards of ice, danced so very gaily
off molten waves of other worlds unknown
eons ago
womyn met in what was known as a circle of life
with the centre being their perpetual and sacred universe- cone of
power
their north came the earth energy and
and to the west came the energy of water
and to the south came the fire energy
and to the east came the air energy
and throughout the meeting
they held hands and danced with unbridled joy of simply living and
breathing
at one with Mother Gaia and her children….at one with each sparking
crystal.
