Matty, an aspiring singer-songwriter with a predilection for stage fright, finds her way into the clandestine gay subculture through the only gay bar in town, a dark, back-alle hole in-the-wall in a seedy part of town.

From this inauspicious beginning, she finds other lesbians, starts to discover the wider lesbian culture, and joins with other like-minded women to create lesbian community. Matty travels to other cities and expands her horizons. She and her friends explore all that lesbian culture has to offer-literature, Womens Music, spirituality, conferences, festivals, marches, softball, politics, and more. If you were part of the lesbian world of the 1970s, Mattys story will resonate poignantly because this is your story, too.Matty McEire is a writer and singer-songwriter who works in a college library to make ends meet and support her creative cravings.

She resides in Asheville, North Carolina, with her greyhound, surrounded by books, music, and good friends.
