Coming out as a femme lesbian
There's a lot of discussion these days about where all the butches have gone. This brilliant SheWired op-ed by Roey Thorpe is a definite must-read on the subject as is my own piece about why we love butch women - yes, "Modesty" is my middle name.

What is that? It's brave and it's not what most people expect to see when they're out at the hardware store on a Sunday afternoon.
