"Fresh and authentic... [King-Miller] combine[s] the 'directness' of Dan Savage with the 'compassion and gentleness' of Cheryl Strayed." -BITCH magazine

This guide to sex, love and life for girls who like girls is useful whether you're a lady-dating veteran or still trying to come out to yourself. Seasoned advice columnist and queer chick Lindsay King Miller cuts through all of the bizarre conditioning imparted by parents, romantic comedies, and  The L Word  to help queer readers live authentic, safe, happy, sexy lives. With advice on every aspect of life as a lesbian, gay, bisexual, or queer woman--from your first Pride to confronting discrimination in the workplace--there is guidance for some of the most major parts of living in a world that can vacillate between supportive and cruel.
 
"Lindsay King-Miller is the cool, queer aunt you never had but always wanted -- she is unrelentingly kind, totally funny, and no subject is off limits.  Ask a Queer Chick  is essential reading."-- Jolie Kerr, author of  My Boyfriend Barfed In My Handbag ... And Other Things You Can't Ask Martha

A breezy but knowledgeable overview of info for women who are into women.

Personally found the first couple chapters about coming out and the LGBTQIA community + the last couple chapters about bisexuality and info for straight allies to be most useful. Really appreciated how Lindsay handled bisexuality and dispelled MANY myths about it.

Much of the middle chapters about dating, sex, breaking up... are relevant to dating and relationships regardless of the gender identities and sexual identities of the parties involved thus not particularly different in a woman / woman context. However, the parts that are specific to women / women dating and relationships - for example, a discussion of queer femmes being read as straight- were useful and illustrative.
