Worth The Risk Is it worth risking a wonderful friendship for the chance at perfect love? Bonnie has been burying her feelings for her best friend Lucy for years. Lucy was in a committed relationship when they met, so when Bonnie's feelings grew, she chose to bury them deep, rather than losing Lucy altogether. Bonnie filled the void with meaningless sexual encounters, while getting what she needed emotionally from Lucy. But now Lucy is single and the undeniable sexual tension that seemed to be growing between them is pure torture for Bonnie. So with their yearly trip to Lucy's lake cabin fast approaching, Bonnie is left with a very big decision. Should she risk ruining the beautiful friendship that she shares with Lucy for a chance at quite possibly finding that epic kind of love that comes only once in a lifetime? Is it really worth the risk?

If there was a moment during the sixties, seventies, or eighties that changed the history of the womenrs"s film movement, B. Ruby Rich was there. Part journalistic chronicle, part memoir, and 100% pure cultural historical odyssey,Chick Flicks-with its definitive, the-way-it-was collection of essays-captures the birth and growth of feminist film as no other book has done.For over three decades Rich has been one of the most important voices in feminist film criticism. Her presence at film festivals (such as Sundance, where she is a member of the selection committee), her film reviews in theVillage Voice,Elle,Out, and theAdvocate, and her commentaries on the public radio program "The World" have secured her a place as a central figure in the remarkable history of what she deems "cinefeminism." In the hope that a new generation of feminist film culture might be revitalized by reclaiming its own history, Rich introduces each essay with an autobiographical prologue that describes the intellectual, political, and personal moments from which the work arose. Travel, softball, sex, and voodoo all somehow fit into a book that includes classic Rich articles covering such topics as the antiporn movement, the films of Yvonne Rainer, a Julie Christie visit to Washington, and the historically evocative filmMaedchen in Uniform. The result is a volume that traces the development not only of womenrs"s involvement in cinema but of one of its key players as well.The first book-length work from Rich-whose stature and influence in the world of film criticism and theory continue to grow-Chick Flicksexposes unexplored routes and forgotten byways of a past thatrs"s recent enough to be remembered and far away enough to be memorable.

This book provides a comprehensive analysis of the legal issues concerning gender and sexual nonconformity in the United States. Part One, which covers the years from the post-Civil War period to the 1980s, is a history of state efforts to discipline and punish the behavior of homosexuals and other people considered to be deviant. During this period such people could get by only at the cost of suppressing their most basic feelings and emotions. Part Two addresses contemporary issues. Although it is no longer illegal to be openly gay in America, homosexuals still suffer from state discrimination in the military and in other realms, and private discrimination and violence against gays is prevalent. William Eskridge presents a rigorously argued case for the "sexualization" of the First Amendment, showing why, for example, same-sex ceremonies and intimacy should be considered "expressive conduct" deserving the protection of the courts. The author draws on legal reasoning, sociological studies, and history to develop an effective response to the arguments made in defense of the military ban. The concluding part of the book locates the author's legal arguments within the larger currents of liberal theory and integrates them into a general stance toward freedom, gender equality, and religious pluralism.

Outwardly sociable with her coworkers and viewers, she can't wait to get back to her gated home and garden. When her longtime stylist goes out of business, she follows a colleague's recommendation to Rhapsody, a small salon that serves as a hub for an eclectic group of lesbian friends. Despite Ashley's efforts to remain aloof, she soon trades her solitude for roller skates, swing dancing and the emotional ups and downs of new friends. Never before has she felt so contented in the company of other women. Even so, there's always the whisper from the past. Would any of them, especially Julia Whitethorn, the charismatic, appealing owner of Rhapsody, care about her if they knew the terrible secret she's kept for twenty years? Lambda Literary Award winner KG MacGregor spins a story about the power of secrets and the risks of love with her trademark wit and insight.
