Asheville, NC, March 06, 2011 --(PR.com
)-- Parking in a Chevy Nova with her boyfriend and watching a Blue Ridge Mountain sunset might be an unusual scenario for coming out, but that’s just what happens to Matty McEire. An aspiring singer-songwriter, she begins to explore her new identity by visiting the only gay bar in town, a dark, seedy hole-in-the-wall. There Matty begins to connect with other like-minded women to create lesbian community outside the bar.
Looking for Sheville, published by Dog Ear Publishing, is a personal look at the early formation of the now thriving lesbian community in Asheville, North Carolina. When Matty comes out in the 1970s, gay liberation is a young movement, which Matty begins to explore, experiencing the first Southeastern Gay Conference, early women’s music festivals, the first National March for Lesbian and Gay Rights, and more. Her explorations inspire her to share the newly emerging lesbian culture with her own growing community.
Author Matty McEire, a singer-songwriter, librarian, "herstorian," and writer, lives in Asheville.
