Lesbian, feminist and humorist, Kate Clinton speaks to a live audience. Clinton jokes about WASA corruption, sleepover with the pages, ET jokes, jokes about Kotex and tampons, growing up with brothers, jokes about her weight and eating cookies as a religious experience for a former Catholic. She recently learned to knit and recalls knitting bandages for lepers as a child. Clinton describes her difficulty with the word, "lesbian" and touches on border crossings, bad questions, names for private parts, gay games, guess who's a lesbian, let's pretend, lesbian tv. Includes jokes about McDonald's, family phrases, de-dyking her home, and sleepovers as kids. Lesbian Studies: Kate Clinton / Produced by WBAI and Viv Sutherland. Recorded on September 22, 1982 at Gay Women’s Alternative.
