Five or six or seven in years past, i discovered my self at
Pandora Event’s
notoriously ~wild~ lesbian weekend extravaganza
“Girls In Wonderland”
in warm Orlando, FL. The amazing lesbian group
ended up being playing a set as of this pretty small plunge songs place known as
“Kitty O’Shea’s Irish Pub”
from the extremely yesterday evening. As the band started to play an attractive cover of “Closer To good” because of the
Indigo Girls
, my center skipped a beat.

“Women!” I shouted on fresh-out-of-the-lesbian-womb group of child dykes I became hanging out that evening. “let us visit the front! They Can Be playing ‘

Closer To Good

.’ Yes!



.” We rested my personal hand against my personal cardiovascular system and sighed considerably.

“What is ‘Closer To Fine?’ i have like, never ever heard this tune before.” A curly-haired beach babe named Christie said, considering the exact distance, aloof and annoyed. “Let’s go get shots!” She started to strut her very long legs toward the club. I got her by her bubble-gum pink boobie shirt.

“You. Do Not. Know. This. Track?” I whispered gradually into the woman ear, incredulous.

She drunkenly giggled. “No, Zara, I Do Not.”

I wrangled other shrimpy 20-somethings I was with into just a little semi-circle around myself. “all of you know exactly who the Indigo ladies are, right?” I inquired them, elevating my eyebrows, generating direct eye contact collectively solitary one of these.

I became came across with a collective, heavy silence.

“hold off, so none people small lesbians understand who the INDIGO GIRLS ARE!?” my human body shook in scary. My personal lips hung agape in surprise. My personal vision darted to the left and also to suitable.

“Uh, no.” The first choice on the package Ellie, squeaked, pulling a Marlboro light of her top pocket (a rather dyke sophisticated move any time you ask myself).

“exactly what a disgrace! How can you contact your self

a lesbian

lacking the knowledge of your lesbian musical sources? That’s only disrespectful! Women, come-on. I’ll educate you on towards Indigo ladies right f*cking today.” I brought the team into the front side with the venue. I decided I happened to be leading a pack of wolves through a hunting selection. “think of this a brief history class,” we hissed.

“Now all of you close your own eyes. And listen to

this tune

. Its a lesbian standard. It will alter your life. It’s the tune of a generation!” abruptly We heard the noise of seasoned lesbians anything like me, all wailing along to “nearer i will be To good,” passionately swaying their sunburned bodies in pure lesbian bliss. We moved off my soapbox and decided to have my personal minute with my preferred track ever before. I closed my vision and wailed alongside my personal individuals.

“There’s more than one response to these concerns

Pointing myself in a crooked line

Additionally the less we find my personal origin for some conclusive

The closer i will be to fiiiineeeeee.”

By the point we started my personal eyes we noticed the little dykes I’d taken to the leading for the level happened to be total Indigo women converts (it
