The only lesbian at the airport

Posted By on Fri, Sep 29, 2006 at 1:11 PM

I'm leaving this afternoon for North Carolina, to go to my Southern Baptist cousin's wedding. We're pretty close — she spent a couple summers up here in Vermont recently, teaching riflery at Brown Ledge girls camp in Colchester.

I'm flying out of BTV and into Greensboro, with a stop at some larger, hub airport. Can't remember exactly which. So this short video from Vermont cartoonist Alison Bechdel caught my eye.

I, too, often feel like the only lesbian at the airport. Except when I'm in Burlington.

Incidentally, I'm really enjoying Alison's blog, and not just because I used to be her assistant and started her original blog two years ago. She's really funny when she goes on tour. This post about her stop in Miami is a good one. She blogs about her lunch with the cartoon editor for the New Yorker.

    Burlington's Turning Point Center is a refuge for Vermonters who are trying to find their way out of drug dependence. In the stairwell leading to the center, a mural depicts a giant hand reaching down to a solitary slouching figure. Just outside the center's door at the top of the stairs, is another message: "You are no longer alone."
