Yes, I'm calling this month's QMH "Those Funny Lesbians: A Tribute to Lesbian Comedy." And no, that wasn't the title of the book at the left. It was originally "Lavender Runway," so adapting the graphic was just a stunt to get your attention. Hope it worked...:)

Stay tuned for over four hours as I try to tell the history, with comedy clips and funny songs from the best artists of our culture. I'm delighted my feature interview is with the incomparable Kate Clinton, and also we'll hear from Robin Tyler, Lynn Lavner, Maxine Feldman, Ivy Bottini, Lisa Koch and others.
