green gays

17 Mar

it is me. i’m an irish lesbian and it is st. patrick’s day.

it’s boring news to me that the gay and lesbians have been told they cannot participate in the st. patrick’s day parade in new york city. so boring. i’ve been to that parade and guess what? it’s a whole lot of policeman and fireman marching- not that i’m ungrateful, but go to any gay pride parade and the clear winner sticks out. we know how to have a parade.

in less boring news i have decided to show off a couple of lesser known irish lesbian writers (my favorite sort):

Eva Selina Gore-Booth- a suffragette and editor of the Women’s Labour News. After her death her partner, Esther Roper had her poetry published.

Kate O’Brien- a published author who wrote about the constraints of a catholic and bourgeois society on women in Ireland.

Edith Sommerville and Violet Martin who wrote under the name Sommerville and Ross and enjoyed a successful writing career togetherlove my irish ladies!
