Meanwhile, Byron leans on Ashley for advice on parenting as … When the discovery of a new piece of evidence about Alison’s disappearance brings the FBI to town, the last thing the girls want to do is go “glamping” (glam camping) for Mona’s birthday party. But when they get a text that insinuates that “A” will be at the party, Spencer gets the idea that it will be their chance to finally put an end to the threats.

As is well-known and frequently discussed, the gothically-inclined English woman of letters, Daphne Du Maurier, also happened to be a lesbian, but virulently suppressed these inclinations given her beloved father’s abhorrence to her behavior – attitudes that Du Maurier imbibed and that gave her lifelong pangs of guilt and self-denial. She experienced two life-altering loves, however: an irreciprocal one for straight Ellen Doubleday, the wife of her publisher Nelson Doubleday, and another for bisexual actress Gertrude Lawrence, which Lawrence purportedly helped her consummate. As created for Du Maurier’s centenary, Claire Beavan’s BBC production Daphne dramatizes the connection between these two relationships; Beavan pulls from private letters and memoirs to depict the series of events by which Du Maurier (played by Geraldine Somerville) fell into an impassioned love for Doubleday (Elizabeth McGovern), and how the unrequited nature of that love spurred her on to author a play about forbidden romantic longings, September Tide – a play that, ironically, introduced her to the second great love of her life, Lawrence (Janet McTeer). In so doing, the film not only resurrects a long-buried and hidden part of Du Maurier’s life but explores the connection between life experiences and highly personalized artistic expression. ~ Nathan Southern, Rovi.

Eight Signs of Being a Lesbian
Lesbian Love Stories Get to You. Hinterhaus Productions/DigitalVision/Getty Images. You get tingly feelings when you read lesbian romance or watch lesbian romantic movies.
What are some signs you might be a lesbian? Is there a test to see if you are a lesbian or not? When you are questioning your sexuality and wondering if you are a lesbian or not, you may be hoping there are certain signs that will help you figure it out. Although this is not a sure-fire test, if you experience three or more of these eight signs, you might be a lesbian. It’s worth investigating further. These are a few signs that you might be a lesbian or bisexual. Of course, there is no 100% sure way to tell. Discovering your sexual orientation takes time and self-exploration. Be patient with yourself and give yourself the time you need to figure it out. When you’re on a date with a guy, you’re thinking about how you can’t wait until it’s over so you can call your BFF–Not to tell her about the date, but to hear her voice and listen to how her day was. And then to make a plan to see her soon. All of this before you plan a second date with the dude. When you watch movies, your eyes are drawn to the female lead and not the hunky male. You can’t help noticing how beautiful she is and you watch the movie over and over just to see that one moment where the camera closes in on her slightly parted lips and all you can think about is kissing them. When you’re out on the town or at the mall, you tend to notice girls first and eventually you notice that there’s a man there too. You do this before you even think. It’s an instinct. You seek out girls and women for friendships, conversations, support, and fun. All of your best friends are women, except maybe a few sensitive or gay men. You’ve asked yourself “Am I a lesbian? ” “Am I gay? ” “Am I bisexual? ” If you’re asking yourself these questions, it’s a sign that you could be lesbian or bisexual. People who are not attracted to the same sex don’t tend to ask themselves if they are gay or not. You’ve had a relationship with a woman and it was great. It’s over now and so you don’t know if it was a one-off thing or if you’re a lesbian for real. If you’ve had one relationship with a woman, chances are you have the capability to fall in love with a woman again, even if you’ve dated men before or since. You get tingly feelings when you read lesbian romance or watch lesbian romantic movies. When you watch a romantic movie or read a lesbian romance novel, you feel something deep inside when the couple kisses for the first time. You imagine yourself in a similar situation and it makes you feel happy and good inside. You have a sense of longing that echoes that of the heroines of the romance. Although you don’t need to have kissed someone or had sex to know if you are a lesbian or not, if you have and you liked it, that’s a positive sign that you might be a lesbian. It is especially a good sign if when you’re kissing you feel a desire to go further than just kissing.
