RT Book, Whole DB /z-wcorg/ DS http://worldcat.org ID 45202092 LA English T1 You're not from around here, are you? : a lesbian in small-town America A1 Blum, Louise A.,, PB University of Wisconsin Press PP Madison, Wis. YR 2001 SN 9780299170943 0299170942 9780299170905 029917090X AB This is a story about life in a small town, from the point of view of a pregnant lesbian. Louise A. Blum now tells the story of her own life and her decision to be out, loud, and pregnant. Blum recounts how a quiet, conservative town in an impoverished stretch of Appalachia reacts as she and a local woman, Connie, fall in love, move in together, and determine to live their life together openly and truthfully. The town responds in radically different ways to the couple's presence, from prayer vigils on the village green to a feature article in the family section of the local newspaper. This is a tale about what it's like to be different in America -- both the good and the bad. A depiction of small town life with all its comforts and its terrors, this memoir speaks to anyone who has ever felt like an outsider in America.
