About The L Life:
There have been few cultural touchstones that have opened people's
eyes to everyday lesbian life, until now. Through fascinating
interviews and stunning portrait photography, The L Life introduces us
to the very women who are changing our view of the world. Called an
"essential hardcover tribute" (The Advocate) and "a dose of
inspiration" (Ms. Magazine), this is one book "that should be your
radar for upcoming gift giving opportunities such as Gay Pride"
Erin McHugh uncovers rich stories of lesbians from all walks of life,
capturing the incredible bravery and passion of ordinary people and
celebrities alike. Breast cancer researcher and bestselling author
Dr. Susan Love is featured, as well as groundbreaking authors Alison
Bechdel and Ann Bannon. Comedian Kate Clinton, Congresswoman Tammy
Baldwin, longtime activist Phyllis Lyon, and award-winning film
producer Christine Vachon are all a part of this gorgeous tribute. The
L Life is a beautiful gift for anyone interested in these important
women who are making a difference.
