As women of the LGBT persuasion know, there are many terms, phrases and shorthands we use to describe things that are unique to our community. This can be as tame as “equality” and as offensive as “carpet muncher”; as sexy as “androgynous” and as confounding as “futch.” So we brought in some experts (comics, writers and actors) who were quizzed on some choice words that are supposedly part of our lexicon. (Like, does anyone actually say “wusband”?) We’re calling this The Lphabet.
This week: I words! We’re talking “Ilene Chaiken” and “invert.”
Check back every week for a new letter and episode of The Lphabet.
