Our photoblogger Robin and her girlfriend Carlytron, aka the cutest couple ever, travel to Gorges Ithaca and a wedding in the Berkshires provide some helpful hints for traveling with your lesbian lover.

“When time came for them to watch Top Model, which they did, I think they started seeing gayness in a normal and great light, because people liked me for that on the show. That was an attractive part of me on the show, it wasn’t anything embarrassing or perverted, and it was just a great thing. I think they started seeing me through the eyes of all the accepting people.”
” I’m not sick of lesbian jokes, I think they’re all true, and I love them. I love that if I wanted to walk around and not shave my legs and have a bad attitude, wear a belt buckle the size of a burrito, I could. I could, and that would be okay because people expect that of me, and I like that people expect that of me.”
“Happy Monday, my beauties! Its me, Robin, your resident photoblogger, here to enchant you with a delightful gaze into some iconic imagery of our lesbionic history.”

“The desire to be on a sketch show has been fulfilled, and I get to be on one which I fit into instead of being the brunt of the jokes.”
“The queer community is always the first to pick up on cool trends.”
“For me, the point of taking a sexy photograph isn’t to provide a woman with an overly photoshopped image of someone slightly reminiscent of herself, but to photograph her in her very best light.”
Initially an all-”female” band, lead-singer Lucas has since transitioned from female to male and the Cliks are regarded for their disregard of traditional gender roles and for bringing trans people into mainstream media.
