Kate Clinton's first book of irreverent humor
Let's get one thing straight. I'm not. I'm out and proud. My closet was huge, complete with a foyer, turnstile, a few dead bolts, and a burglar alarm. It wasn't until I had lived and slept with a woman for a year that it occurred to me to ask, "Do you think we're lesbians?"

She has kind of a confusing writing style at times, but overall this collection is funny and at times poignant.

Kate Clinton is a very funny, thought-provoking, lesbian stand-up comic. She made me laugh out loud many times. The book was published in 1998 and was Clinton's first book. It is a bit dated. Young people might not get all the references, but I'm not young (!) and I loved it.

I remember reading some of this while sitting at the gate in an airport. I had to put it down because I was laughing so hard I had tears rolling down my face.
