Welcome to the L-Word online!


We're happy to have this space to share some of what we put in the paper plus things that we find out about too late to get them in. We update the site at least monthly, so when the L-word's paper publication comes out you should see some changes reflected here as well. And there are often changes in between when we find out about something exciting, so check back.

Our site holds a local calendar of intriguing events, archives of Kulture Klatch, Ruth's Review, and Montanna's spirituality column, and a summary of last month's Queer news, as well as local resources. If there's something else that you think is important to get up here, please, don't hesitate to contact us! We are always looking for the next best idea.


Lesbian rock icon Melissa Etheridge will be at the Van Duzen at HSU on Thursday November 19, 8 pm, $76. This is a solo show, just Melissa and guitars, harmonica, and piano. According to "Bayside Debbie", who's a big fan, "She rocks out on stage. That is the cherry on top, seeing Melissa sing songs we love. But the cake is the audience's vibe, it is Unbelievable. Like nothing else I've felt before. It feels amazing & Hot!" . Call CenterArts for tickets at 826-4411.
