This collection of Lee Lynch's columns chronicles over a quarter century of queer life in the United States, from the last decades of the twentieth century into the twenty-first.
"From the beginning of my writing career, I just wanted to write about lesbian/gay life as I experienced it. Like so many, I came from a place of great isolation. At the same time, being gay filled me with great pride and joy. Writers Jane Rule, Isabelle Miller, Radclyffe Hall, Valerie Taylor, Ann Bannon, and Vin Packer gave me inspiration and even the lesbian companionship I needed as a baby dyke. More than anything, I want to give to gay people what those writers gave me. And I want to do it well enough that my words might someday be considered literature and, as such, might endure because, as open as some societies have become, there are always haters, and cycles of oppression. Our writers strengthen us, offer a sense of solidarity and validation that we are both more than our sexualities and are among the best that humanity offers."

Life would be much easier for Rosalind Olchawski if she didn't have to wake up the morning after the fairy tale.
Falling abruptly in love with a much younger drag king, awakening to the passionate madness of life, and breaking barriers, internal and external, are all wonderful things. But the past has a way of lingering and erupting into the present with devastating force, and sometimes love doesn't come with the white picket fence of our dreams. Rosalind's former husband arrives unexpectedly in Buffalo, turning Rosalind's brand new life with her lover Taryn on its head. Paul doesn't know Rosalind has fallen in love with a young woman and moved on with her life, and he wants her back. Will Paul's intrusion destroy him, or the burning new life Rosalind has built?
Sequel to Of Drag Kings and the Wheel of Fate.
Vivian Cooper and the DiGiovanni twins have been through hell and back. And they're still broke and on the run. Life's a bitch like that.
Cooper and the twins are together again. This time with Reese and Ryan's fathers in tow. All they have to do is get their money back. But they dig up more than they bargained for in Vegas. And that chick who ripped them off in Mexico doesn't want to give up the gold. Plus the DiGiovanni family is probably still after them. And maybe the cops. This whole stealing the money and running thing is hard.
Even if they manage to get the money and get away, can they stay hidden? Cooper's sins have to catch up at some point. Will Reese and Ryan still be her salvation?
Final novel in the Dirty Trilogy
By Lee Lynch
Jaudon Vicker and Berry Garland are polar opposites yet know they are meant to be together. Growing up in steamy backcountry Central Florida, they fight each other’s battles: Berry protects boyish Jaudon from bullies, Jaudon gives the abandoned Berry roots. They pledge that nothing will part them, not a changing Florida nor a changing America, not Berry’s quest for her spiritual path, nor Jaudon’s ambition for her family's business. When the war in Vietnam, politics, police, rough times, society itself, and other women threaten to come between them, their bond grows deeper. In the safety of their secluded tree house hideaway, they learn to dream, dance—and to make love.
