Lesbian Pulp Fiction, 21st Century Style

Dolly2Bobby626x336

San Francisco author, film editor and critic Monica Nolan just completed the fourth book in her saucy Lesbian Career Girl series. With titles like “Lois Lenz, Lesbian Secretary,” “Bobby Blanchard, Lesbian Gym Teacher” and “Maxie Mainwaring, Lesbian Dilletante,” they’re spoofs of 1950s and ‘60s career primers for high school girls, and humorous homages to lesbian pulp fiction of the same era – often-maligned literature that helped build the gay rights movement. Join Nolan with Out in the Bay host Eric Jansen as they read selections from her racy fiction — including a sneak peek from her yet-to-be-released “Dolly Dingle, Lesbian Landlady” —  and discuss how historically-set novels and film document the changes in societal norms and LGBT rights over the years. (Broadcast live April 3, 2014)
