1950s novels

Gay Things I Shouldn’t Have Allowed My Mother To Do (but it's too late now)

-Read my 1950s lesbian pulp novels
(“Wait, what’s happening? Why did she die? This is some BULLSHIT!!!”)
-Watch Carol
(“Well, if I were to be with a woman, I would want to be with a woman like Carol. She seems like a very attentive lover. Look at the faces Therese is making!”)
-Watch The L Word
(“Why are they always having sex? Is this what you and your friends do when you disappear into your room for two hours? Is this really how dramatic being a lesbian is?”)

The Wonderful Flight to the Mushroom Planet  - The first book in the children’s sci-fi fantasy ‘Mushroom Planet’ adventure series written by Eleanor Cameron, published in 1954. Illustrated by Robert Henneberger.

I really love theatre, reading, film, binge watching tv shows, animals, politics, and hiking! I’m a vegan and I can cook super amazing vegan food! 😋 I spend a looooot of my time either working out, reading 1950s lesbian pulp novels, or watching documentaries about LGBTQ+ rights or feminism.
I’m looking for a serious relationship or some new friends!! I love talking to new people and I think I’m pretty nice, so don’t hesitate to message me! (:

“ What I’ve found does the most good is just to get into a taxi and go to Tiffany’s. It calms me down right away, the quietness and the proud look of it; nothing very bad could happen to you there, not with those kind men in their suites, and that lovely smell of silver and alligator wallets. If I could find a real-life place that made me feel like Tiffany’s, then I’d buy some furniture and give the cat a name.” ~ Breakfast at Tiffany’s ( Truman Capote)
