older lesbians

This multi-media project crosses the boundaries of time, politics and prejudice to tell the stories of eight Queensland lesbians.
When Judy, my partner of 31 years, died and left me alone in my mid-sixties, I knew I was facing yet another new start. How will I handle this?
I took to boys like I was on a fast trip down a one-lane highway, but that was because I had no idea that I could be with a girl. A perfect middle-class 1950s girl, I went to college, dated boys and got married at 22. I tried being the perfect wife but failed miserably.
I will confess to having had the occasional girl crush over the years. I can even recall their names: Terry in high school, Ginny in college, Lee and Penny as an adult. ...If any of them had kissed me then the way Sybil kisses me now, I probably would have been a goner.
