Firstly I would like to say what a great magazine. I never use to
read it but now subscribe and look forward to reading it each month.
I was very inspired by the article on “Let’s Get Physical” in the
February issue. I am about to embark on a fitness career and found
the story very inspirational. Not only for overcoming emotional
stress but stating we are never to old to do any thing. I wish Liz
[Ashburn] all the very best at the Gay Games and thank you for
bringing an article like this to us. Keep up the good work and happy

L WORD NEWS
Thanks for your news story on The L Word last month. After many
readers badgering Channel 7 it appears to have worked. A source at
7 has leaked the info that The L Word season 2 will air from March
1 at midnight. The timeslot sucks but it’s better than nothing!
LOTL MARKS THE SPOT
I’m in Sydney from Canada and I just have to say that this is a
wonderful city. Everyone is so out and proud and I have seen many
lesbians walking along holding hands. Perhaps it’s because it’s
Mardi Gras season, but I also think it’s just the pulse of this city. I
was so glad to pick up a copy of LOTL and get my bearings. Thanks
for a great magazine. We don’t have anything like it at home.
Heather, via email
MAKING THE PAPERS
Did LOTL notice this letter sent in to The Sydney Morning Herald
on February 3, in the context of a complaint that doctors’ surgeries
routinely stock only women’s magazines?
“It is all about the quality of the reading material, Sam. When I visit
my inner-city GP, I go straight to the latest edition of Lesbians on
the Loose. John Swanton Alexandria.”
[Ed: Yes we did, and we agree with him!]

Elin O’Connell the
reporter (right), and
her partner, Sandy
visited numerous B &
Bs, and other holiday
spots between 1995
and 1998 doing travel
reviews for LOTL. Elin’s
command of the English
language, her clever turn of phrase, wit and sense of irony
meant that the reader could always determine whether the
area discussed was worth visiting or not. The New Theatre
was the focus of Elin’s creative life for many years. She
was involved in all aspects of production: writing, singing,
acting, directing, fundraising, and even working the sound
and light systems – at times with inappropriate results.
Elin’s working life as an English teacher was enhanced by
her involvement in feminist, union, environmental, gender
equality, artistic and political pursuits and issues. Her quiet
times were devoted to reading, poetry and music. After
retiring as a high school Deputy Principal Elin, with Sandy,
joined the Gay and Lesbian Choir in 1998, and thoroughly
enjoyed the association – especially the trip to Europe,
after which Elin and Sandy did their own tour. Elin spent
her last years living near her beloved Lake Macquarie,
close to three of her four children and six grandchildren.
Our Elin was a powerful yet gentle influence on all who
knew her; child or kingmaker, friend or adversary. She
will be greatly missed, especially by the women at LAMA
(Narellan), and her family, but the memories of her humour,
love and knowledge will keep us smiling.
