An alto with the Seattle Women’s Chorus wrote me recently to invite me to their upcoming Vixen Fiction concert, featuring among other things, lyrics taken from Ann Bannon’s Beebo Brinker Chronicles.
At the premiere of the program, April 12-13, Ann Bannon will be present and making comments on the pieces. A salute to the lesbian fiction pulp novels of the 50s and 60s, it promises to be a one-of-a-kind. It will be repeated again at the GALA quadrennial conference in Miami in July.
Women, including the lesbian contingent the reader assures me earns and deserves the designation “bad girls,” gathering together to celebrate our history in song – it gives me the tingles. I wish I could be in Seattle or Miami to hear it. If that’s where you are, don’t miss it!
