HELLO AND WELCOME.
My name is Paula Key. My wife, Trish, and I live in a part of Canada where we are surrounded by lakes, rocks and tall pine trees. Canada became the fourth country to legalize same-sex marriage in 2005. The following year, Trish and I were married. We both enjoy travelling that gives us an opportunity to meet people, particularly lesbians. While my passion is to write, Trish is an avid photographer. It is a wonderful combination that keeps us fulfilled.
The Goals of This Site
1. I blog daily to provide lesbians with information and entertainment. As of September, 2014, I have welcomed over 81,000 visitors from around the world.
I would like to welcome you – a first time visitor or a regular reader. You are a precious human who deserves to love and be loved. I would like you to consider this site as your second home.
2. This site promotes my lesbian ebooks. They can be found on Amazon (world-wide), Barnes & Noble, Kobo, Flipkart (India) and Apple iBooks. You can read ebooks on your laptop, computer, iPad and telephone devises. Samples of my books are on this site (need to do some updating) and on Amazon where they are published in finished format.
THIS SITE CELEBRATES LESBIANS
This site celebrates lesbians. It is important for lesbians who live in homophobic countries to be aware of lesbian history (her story) and to be up-to-date on world affairs that may impact on them. Lesbians living secret lives, and not being able to celebrate who they, need support. I blog daily to unite all lesbians and to provide persecuted lesbians with a ‘second home’ - this site. I have pictures of famous and unknown lesbians who are now engaged or married. This is to provide hope and faith that the barriers of discrimination will fall. Love triumphs over hate.
LESBIANS WHO ARE SINGLE, ENGAGED OR MARRIED
TWO LESBIANS THAT I ADMIRE
SALLY RIDE commanded a NASA space shuttle. I cannot image the courage it must take to blast off into space. And it takes immense knowledge and skills to be in charge of a shuttle launch and the bringing of a crew back to earth. Sally was in a 27 year relationship with Tammy O’Shaughnessy, a professor, who shared Sally’s love of science and space.
MARGARETHE CAMMERMEYER was the highest U.S.A military officer to come out gay is Margarethe Cammermeyer who was promoted to Colonel in 1987. She served for 14 months as Head of Nursing during the Vietnam War. She War. She was dismissed from the army for declaring her sexual orientation. A television movie, “Serving in Silence,” (starring Glenn Close) brought the issue to the public. Margarethe worked tirelessly against “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” (a policy to keep military gays/lesbians silent. Thanks to Margarethe and others gays and lesbians can serve openly in the military. I personally am grateful for Margarethe taking the time to go over the manuscript of my lesbian ebook “Lt. Dee, Army Nurse: Vietnam). She made considerable comments and was incredibly generous with her time.
Below, are the faces of lesbians who were murdered because of their orientation. Their courage is an inspiration to us all. Their spirits remain with us.
