Jess Oliver
No comments

  Whilst travelling in Europe in 2011, playwright David Atfield kept seeing the same face in museums- an undeniably beautiful Roman youth, named Antinous, but always unclearly labelled. What began as mild curiosity turned into a three year long journey into the life of a powerful young man, Antinous (Ethan Gibson)- largely unmentioned in the…

It is often that we get albums that sing of love. This is one of those albums. Yet don’t let its title, Put Your Back N 2 It, fool you into thinking it is the latest by Ice Cube. Think more along the lines of Bon Iver or Sufjan Stevens (or even, on the track…

I blew my high school years in pursuit of one girl. It seems comical now, that my 13-year-old self met the girl of my dreams and spent the next five or so years pining after her. That, along with general shyness and being the only out lesbian at my high school and college meant I…

Regency era England is often regarded as a world of fluttery Jane Austen-types, high tea and button-down sexuality. However, the fascinating and largely unknown figure of Anne Lister, and her extensively juicy diaries, pry open a very different account of the times. Watching the recent BBC telemovie based on Lister’s life, The Secret Diaries of…

the queer girl’s guide to coming out

lip magazine
One comment

Coming out is often portrayed in the media as One Big Event that changes the course of your life forever. While for some people, I’m sure coming out is something you do once only, and with a bang (Ellen DeGeneres springs to mind here), for most of us, coming out is something we do over…

Earlier this month, Australia was alerted to an incident involving two girls who wanted to go to their school’s ball together. The school subsequently banned the couple from going to the ball. One of the girls was told either to go with a boy or go alone. The school allegedly gave a number of reasons…
