She had met her husband — "a terrific guy, very sweet" — at high school when she was 16, had been married to him for 25 years, had two dearly loved children, and what she describes as a "white-picket-fence existence" in New York.

Why it's never too late to be a lesbian | Relationships | The Guardian
I have had a lot of flack in the past for suggesting that lesbianism can be a positive choice for women and that sexual identity is not a genetic predisposition. Imagine my joy, therefore, at meeting a couple of top lesbians who have written a book on how straight women can convert by following a simple 12 Step programme. I met them both at a feminist conference in Malmo, Sweden in May as they were promoting their book in the lobby. The queue consisted of women of all ages and persuasions buying the book and asking Mian and Matilda for autographs. I asked if they would tell Diva Magazine their recipe for lezzerism, and they were only too willing to oblige. Mian, a journalist and gay activist of 30 years was the first out lesbian in Sweden. Matilda is younger than Mian and admits to being starstruck when she met her at a party.
