Do my breasts look big in this?

Rare treat last night. We watched, as part of Queer Screen‘s Queer Docs 2008 programme, a couple of docos made in Lebanon – one lesbian, one gay. Unusually, the lesbian doco was funny. Cutely titled ‘Le(s)banese’, it contained interviews with four young lesbians who were happy, open and accepting of their sexuality, who lived in safer spaces and had good family relationships. The other film, called ‘The Beirut Apartment’, was grimmer, more political and hilighted conflicts of self and community. From personal knowledge, I believe the latter is true of gay men living in Muslim nations and in Asia. However, the good natured lesbians stole the evening for me. Plus I wuz cruised – me, wearing a long coat and bundled up from the cold. Must’ve been my big…smile.

Dinner was at our favourite Turkish restaurant. Dunno where half the other thirteen women at our table came from. Tonight, French food!

Evecho’s newsy bits

News, updates and links from the lesbian and publishing ‘verse that interest me, my current projects, keeping up with authors and sharing musings on middle-class life, gourmet adventures and comparisons between East/West perspectives. My opinions will likely be linearly logical and gayly bent, as they tend to be.
