Promiscuous Affections
A Life in The Bar, 1969-2000

And now?
End of Gay Xtra #387 Virginia Woolf

 "'Look here . . .' she began. She wanted to express something that she felt to be very important; about a world in which people were whole; in which people were free . . . . But they were laughing; she was serious. 'Look here . . .' she began again. ...

"She looked at her brother. A feeling of animosity possessed her. He was still smiling, but his smile smoothed itself out as she looked at him.

"'What's the use?' she said, facing him. 'You'll marry. You'll have children. What'll you do then? Make money. ...instead of living . . . living differently, differently.'

"She stopped. There was the vision still, but she had not grasped it."

Virginia Woolf, in The Years, 1937

"Who is she? Who was she? Who does she hope to be?"

Harold, on a surprise guest at his birthday party, in Mart Crowley's
The Boys in the Band, 1968
