When We Were Outlaws
a.) During the book When We Were Outlaws: A Memoir of Love and Revolution the femme butch dynamic is mentioned as something that was frowned upon in the feminist lesbian community because it followed traditional gender norms and heterosexual relationship styles. Because I am very much interested in the femme/butch dynamic, I would be interested in Jeanne Cordova’s views on the subject now, giving the growing numbers of femme identified lesbians and their acceptance by the community.
b.) I would be also be very interested in Jeanne Cordova’s views on shows like The L Word and/or The Real L Word and what they may or may not be contributing to the LGBTQ movement.
c.) I would also like to hear Jeanne Cordova’s views on where the movement stands today, especially with consideration to queer, transgender and bisexual identities, what advice she might have for today’s young activists and also how does she view the internet in regards to organizing? Does she believe the internet supports or replaces traditional publications?
