I’m a femme lesbian singer-songwriter, actor and writer currently living and studying in London. I was brought up in the countryside by my artist parents, who taught me to sing traditional folk songs and encouraged me to express my creativity in as many ways as possible. These days I write music and gig around London, as well as acting and writing for theatre. I recently had the honour of writing and performing the end credits song for femme lesbian Marina Rice Bader’s new movie ‘Ava’s Impossible Things’. I have a beautiful Canadian girlfriend, who I’m in a very happy long distance relationship with, although we’re hoping at some point to live in the same country.
I am a multi-lingual bisexual writer and journalist from Miami. It’s wonderful to be part of the Pink Lobster Dating writing team and I will be offering an important bisexual representation to all the femme women out there. Due to my current work I am unable to publish photos of myself online, hence why there is no photo of me, but I am gorgeous

I am a bi femme feminist mid-twenties traveller, with a healthy suspicion for stereotypes and a bewildered impatience for the creative ignorance of our current society. I'm all too aware that too many people speak without thinking, so I'm taking the liberty of doing it for them.

Homarus Minds Don’t All Think Alike
Greetings fellow femmes, and welcome to the Pink Lobster blog. I’m delighted to meet you (virtually). I’m Hannah and I’m a thirty-something femme living in London. Tired of femme invisibility, I set up a blog last autumn to add my voice to the few femme bloggers that were already out there. There are already some great blogs from femmes in the US and the UK, ranging from political articles to personal stories, but there aren’t enough of us to represent the diversity of femmes. And to me, blogging can have many different faces - generating visibility, discussion, identifying and being entertained. I’m specifically interested in discussing issues surrounding femme/lipstick lesbian identity, which is why, whilst drawing on personal experience, my blog posts aren’t about me and my life – they’re about us, as femmes, and some of our shared issues and experiences. Of course, I can’t represent all femmes and neither would I have the audacity to try! But I hope that some of what I write strikes a chord, or at least generates greater femme discussion. Please feel free to submit comments or suggestions for topics that you’d like to see aired.
For now, I’ll sign off with a femmetastic fact...
Not only is the name Pink Lobster fitting for this site due to its well known nods to gay identity and mating, but also as the Latin name for lobster happens to be ‘Homarus’. Unfortunately, I was unable to find out from my sources (Google) whether this is an accident, or whether the ‘homa’ part relates in any way to the stem ‘homo’, indicating sameness. Either way, I think we’re all justified in saying ‘I’m a homarus’ to denote being a femme who wants to be visible in the world and to other femmes, and is using Pink Lobster Dating as the pincer to grab this with. Happy reading and happy dating.

The glass is always half full. Never half empty :-)
I am a 36 year old female. I am a mother to two amazing children. I am a bisexual female.
I like women to be women (femme) & I like men to be men ( bear like).
I write poetry quite a bit to put things into perspective for myself. Many of which I’ve never shared with anyone. I am ready to share my thoughts. I am ready to be open. I am ready to move on in the next chapter in my life. Thank you for reading my inner most thoughts. Enjoy.

"Hello my fellow merry lesbians! I'm Lauren, and at the tender age of 21 you may think I'm just a baby dyke, but I've actually been writing my own Lesbian Blog for 5 years! Being pretty well-versed in gay scenes in the UK and North America doesn't hurt either, so if you need any advice on where to go with your friends or meet new ladies you know who to ask. I consider myself a so-called 'raging' feminist and hope you do too. Hmm what can I tell you that's interesting? In my down time you will probably find me in my glamorous carrot onesie, drinking Corona and singing the Wicked soundtrack far too loudly."

‘I’ve been writing since I can remember and I’ve been writing about dating since I realised women can be rubik cubes of cra
ziness. I once went on a blind date where a woman turned up wearing a mermaid costume. After moving from a small hut in Wales surrounded by sheep and farmer’s sons; I now live in London with my cat Crayon. I run a lesbian blog ‘Fisforr’ and I’ve written two novels that I hope to get published one day. And I hope the people that I’ve based the novels on never read them. Because they will get very mad.
On PINK LOBSTER DATING I will cover the aspects of dating like what you’re allowed to do, where you should go and how you’re meant to cope in a world with unspoken rules and shared breadsticks.
