5 tips for finding your perfect lesbian partner

5 tips for finding your perfect lesbian partner

My hope was that through the magic of science, I could figure out how to make good choices. How to find and love women who would be steady eddies, loving, stable, loyal, affectionate, and sexy as Xena to boot. Here’s what I learned, from this book (and a few others….), adapted here to be of help to single lesbians.

Travel Trips for Women

Tripsista is a website that promotes women’s destinations and travel. They seem to have a great offering of events if you’re ever looking for a sun holiday or retreat that is by for and about women. I generally want to travel to places that are […]

She’s Just Not That Into You –  for Lesbians

She’s Just Not That Into You –  for Lesbians

I have a guilty confession. After a breakup a couple of years ago, I binge-listened to the cheesy hetero dating advice book (on audiobook) “He’s Just Not That Into You: The No-Excuses Truth to Understanding Guys” by Greg Behrent and Liz Tuccillo. It’s strangely comforting and compelling after a breakup, to hear absolute, black and white explanations for why an iffy relationship is best cleared off your plate completely.

How to tie and buy a butch bow tie

by Sophia Kelly (c) Lesbian Quarterly I bought my genderqueer girlfriend a silk bow tie for Christmas. It looks fabulous – green silk with a nice subtle pattern on it and super classy. For extra difficulty I bought it while visiting Calgary, which if you […]

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

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

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. […]

Vancouver – Same-Sex Country Dancing Thursday Nights

Vancouver – Same-Sex Country Dancing Thursday Nights

I’ve been going for several years to Timberline Dance – it’s two step and line dancing attended by mostly gay men, and some lesbian and straight women. Super friendly, like a country dance in a small gay town.

Music Video – I wish I was a lesbian

Music Video – I wish I was a lesbian


Loudon Wainwright III is not (to my knowledge) a lesbian, but this song, and especially the video, is very funny. It’s created out of anime cartoons and the choices are hilarious. Here’s the link: I wish I was a lesbian  or just click on the image from the video at left.

The below is a Xena (sigh, Xena) themed video interpretation of the same song.
