Lesbian. Style. Two words you don’t often find next to each other. But Lesbian Style isn’t about fashion. It’s about the lives and loves of women who love women – how we feel about ourselves, our lovers, our families and friends; what makes us laugh, what makes us cry; the worst moments and the best. Drawing on interviews with lesbian and bi women as well as my own life it explores the ups and downs of lesbian existence – from romance to role models, coming out to breaking up, body hair to bereavement.
“Lesbian Style runs the full gamut of real Irish lesbian experience, with a refreshing warmth and openness that skillfully handles both the tough realities of ‘lesbophobia’ and the giddy highs of dyke love and queer power. Wonderful stuff, way overdue.” – Ruth McCarthy, Festival Director, Outburst Queer Arts Festival
