The Lesbian Google

I'm being swamped by lesbian news! I subscribed to Google news alerts for news containing the subject "lesbian" - its amazing! Here just a few headlines from the news alerts I've been sent:

Surrey school board settles with lesbian mothers
Lesbian mums win fight for more respect

Lipstick Lesbian Take Over!
Marketplace finds lesbians an attractive, but elusive, niche

Angelina Jolie and her former lesbian lover visited dominatrix


I've received 25 news in only 2 days! I also checked out German Google News for the Word "Lesben" and even that produced 187 headlines for the last two weeks. "Schwul" (German for gay) produced 319 news and "homosexuell" another 56...

Welcome to the L-News - we've been discovered by the media and unlike (not so) many years ago, it's not all about scandals, murder and deviated sex in the closet anymore. I remember when I was a kid in the 70s the first thing I ever read about dykes in a newspaper was a series in the German yellow press newspaper "Bild" called "The crimes of the lesbian women"... It was horrorfying, but obviously it didn't keep me away from the girls!

Hello, my name is Christa.

I am a volunteer with www.alesbianslife.com.

You can contact me directly @ a_lesbians_life@yahoo.com

I would like to find out how I could get our link posted to your blog.

Here is our mission taken from our website which was founded by Donna Mete' who is an amazing woman that is truly "giving back" to our community:

A Lesbian's Life was founded in June 2006 to provide women with information and entertainment that explores the depth, richness and variations of our many life experiences. With our newly launched website, an upcoming blog and book, we expect to build this portal and begin filming an exciting new TV series. Each effort promises to address real-life issues in the lives of women who have not had the benefit of a voice that reaches far into our community and our world. We are committed to initiating a meaningful dialogue around issues important to all of us, to dispelling myths that exist within and outside of the community and to do away with the limited, stereotypical representations of lesbians that are prevalent today.

We hope to inspire you and to provide an ongoing series of thought-provoking, humorous and compelling opinions.

Some of these topics include gender decisions, parenting, being single, BDSM, love and loss, bisexuality and knowing when to let go...along with dozens of other fascinating subjects. Our Expert's Corner will invite numerous professionals to share their insights and expertise with us on a monthly basis and believe their presence will be of tremendous value. If you're a lesbian writer and would like to contribute a story or opinion, please contact us as well. We hope you will consider sharing your thoughts and visiting us often!

We hope you'll join us!

Thank you in advance for your consideration.

Best regards,

Christa
