Laughing Matters

Behind the scenes with three local lesbian stand-up comics

By Tiffany Mott-Smith For as long as I can remember, I have loved stand-up. The first time I saw Margaret Cho, Doug Stanhope, and Eddie Izzard, I was laughing so hard that I didn’t care if I never caught my breath again!

2012: The year of the lesbian/bi television revolution

By Heather Hogan
2012 was a remarkable year for LGBT people in the United States. We re-elected a president who spoke out in favor of same-sex marriage, who refused to continue defending DOMA, and who overturned “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell.” We elected our first openly gay senator. And all four states that put marriage equality on their ballots in November voted in favor of gay rights.
