Here’s the audio from the show and a couple of notes:
1) From the Lesbian Life section of about.com: Kiki is a term that was used in the lesbian bar culture of the 1950s and 1960s to describe someone who was neither butch nor femme. At that time, the bar culture was very much into roles and most women were pressured to choose either butch or femme. (In the 90’s, older lesbians in Baltimore were still using the term “kiki” that’s how I learned about it.)
2)The book I mentioned near the end is Unclutter: Cleanse Your Spirit & Claim Your Stuff by Kevin E. Taylor
