"Sexual education in my conservative, southern, Christian upbringing was strictly on a need-to-know basis: I needed to know what I should avoid. An entire sexual revolution swirled around me, giving not thought at all to my existence, yet it was I, I, who madly sought it."

This story, shared by TueNight writer Kathleen Warner, was posted 5 years ago, and yet, much of what Kathleen expresses rings true today. This time, we’re fighting so that we won’t need another horrible injustice to bring these thoughts to mind, instead, as a community, we will strive to be aware and act on a daily basis to fight for racial equality until we have true racial equality in our country.

“Until fairly recently, I didn’t think much about how easily and freely I moved in this country. I took for granted the dozens — no, hundreds of interactions and experiences that I had over the course of any given week where I could just be, without worry, fear, accusation or confrontation. I have been able to work and live and love and play and move without really recognizing that these were freedoms, rather than just part of my daily life as an American.” — Kathleen Warner, How My White Perspective on Freedom Has Changed

A Freedom Song for Black Women

A stunningly beautiful piece by Tamara Winfrey Harris: A Freedom Song for Black Women

"It is a wonder that Black women are able to accomplish all that we do, bound as we are. We love. We fight. We raise our babies. We raise other people’s babies. We create. We laugh. We are your style icons. We stand in the middle of city streets raging against a system that consumes Black lives. We remind the world that our people can’t breathe. All this while struggling for oxygen ourselves.

Imagine what we could do if the world let us breathe and let us be."

#TueNight #Storytelling

Black women are like flowers in a field of kudzu. Beautiful, bright and colorful, we fight our way to the light so we are not overcome by society’s demands that climb and shade, smother and constrict our true selves. There are so many ways to be Black and so many ways to be a woman.  Oh, to thr

Lift Every Voice And Sing: A Q&A with Activist and Singer Abby Dobson

In this January 31, 2017 interview, shortly after the Women’s March, journalist Angela Bronner Helm spoke with activist and singer Abby Dobson about the protest, the persistent disconnect between women of different races and backgrounds, and the importance of amplifying Black women’s voices. In Abby’s words, we find powerful insights and calls to action that are relevant and necessary right now.

The Fourth of July is a complicated holiday for many this year. Not only are we unable to celebrate in the traditional ways, barbecues, hot dogs and fireworks, but we are wrestling with something much larger as a country: the meaning of the Fourth of July for everyone, especially those who were not free when the Declaration of Independence was signed. Throughout the growth of the country over the last several weeks, we’ve revealed the enormous amount of work that there is still to be done for BIPOC communities, in our country.

At TueNight, we would like to wish everyone in our community a Happy Fourth of July celebration, with the promise that we will continue to work towards the ever important goal of true equality, inclusion and freedom for every person in this country.

Depression in the Time of COVID-19 and a Lifetime Before

“When everything suddenly changed, my October crash emotions reappeared: I felt consumed by sadness and anger. I wasn’t sleeping well, nothing tasted good. It felt hard to be around my family. I felt isolated from everyone. I believed everyone else was doing life better than me, and I was unable to face people; I didn’t want to talk to anyone.” — Sarah Buttenwieser

A few weeks before the 2016 election, we shared a conversation about race between Sara, a white woman, and Eric, a Black man, who had grown up as neighbors in Lincoln, Nebraska. In light of the many race-related horrors that have transpired since the election, including the present moment, we reached out to Sara and Eric to find out what’s on their minds.

Shortly after the 2016 election, astrologer and wellness guide Karrie Myers Taylor of KM Taylor Astrology & Wellness penned this essay to address our collective post-election blues. And here we are, not four years later, utterly devastated again by the manifestations of white supremacy that are woven into the fabric of this country. We’re thankful for Karrie’s tips, but sure as hell wish we didn’t need them. ☮️

Our Story

We’re telling tales and spilling the secrets of Gen-Xers and middle age on Tuesday nights.

Why Tuesday? It’s an easy night for a drink with a friend. It’s a quiet minute at 10pm to steal a moment for yourself. The night you dream about your second act. TueNight is your night. Sign up for our newsletter, the TueDo List: Every week (on Tuesday’s, natch) we deliver a small, handcrafted batch of great links, profiles of women over 40 and stories by top-notch writers. And be the first to hear about our live events. Which brings us too...

Join us at “TueNight Live”: We host live - and now virtual! - storytelling events around a single theme - sex, breakups, health, money, bodies, fails, first jobs, second acts, nostalgia, family, aging and more. Of course, we also drink cocktails, nosh on good food, and chat. It’s not so much networking as it is connecting with a brand new friend over 40 — how often do we get to do that?

Enjoy stories on our website: TueNight.com. Find the great stories you’ve heard at our live events as well as many more stories from women just like you.

Join our Facebook Group, TueNighters: Can we talk? Sign up to join our exclusive group with one of the most thoughtful, hilarious and well-moderated (that sh*t’s important!) groups around. We go deep.

    For your listening enjoyment this evening. I find it interested how her voice/vocal range starts out higher--more girly and sweet, but then switches to her deeper range--lower, full- bodied woman range. Madonna's voice does this, too. Maiden/Mother/Crone/ Badass Woman who knows how to use her voice. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cN6rS2M3JLA Please enjoy.
    My 12 year old has lost her f**king mind. She just came into my office to ask for help with a pdf file for a project...I told her the pdf doesn't work the way she wants it to work...like my real world experience with pdf files that I use and send, all day, every day. She proceeded to tell me to f**k off (yes, the words came out of her mouth). I yelled back that she should also f**k off (I know, not good Mom behavior) so she slammed the door and I could see her through the window flip me off. What do I do with that? And how long am I making the excuse that she's going through puberty in the middle of a pandemic and hasn't left the house in months? FFS.
    POETRY! Maybe it can't save the world, but, boy, it sure can express complicated thoughts about the gifts and burdens of being human in a beautiful way. All that is to say: POETRY TONIGHT on Grown-Ass Lady Bedtime Stories! Stephanie Gangi will read a beautiful piece that has a lot of resonance to our times. Please join us on FB live, HERE, tonight at 8pm/ET!
    OMG, I read Lauren Young's essay about Camp and now I'm totally crying. She NAILED every feeling I've ever had about Camp. I would have never made it through my teens if I hadn't found my tribe at Northeast Music Camp. And now my son is reaching the age where he may want to go...I'm a puddle.
    “Beauty pageants early in their histories, some dating back to the 1920s, barred women of color from participating. Even after organizations began changing their rules to accept women of all races, there was still a lingering frustration and opposition to join.”
    Anyone see the HBO documentary called Jane Fonda in Five Acts? I found it fascinating. Very well done. I learned a lot about her I never knew and came away with a deep respect of her. Intelligent, passionate, compassionate, self-reflective and now putting her authentic self first. Inspiring. I highly recommend it!
    To go along with all the other 90's memories...
    Hi all, I can't use my two tickets for Courtney Barnett at Celebrate Brooklyn @ Prospect Park next Wednesday. Let me know if you want them! ($40 each) Her latest album, Tell Me How You Really Feel, is brilliant and tackles everything from Internet trolls to #Metoo. Even if you can't go to the show I highly recommend checking it out. Lori xx
    I think I can get down with this.
    What the actual Eff? Am I missing something here? This is crazy!
    And this popped up on my feed.....can we say Georgia O’Keefe?
    Speaking of Fleabag... When you meet the unbelievably talented and hilarious Phoebe Waller-Bridge, you give her a wiener. 🌭🙂 If you've seen her incredible show, Fleabag, you know why. If you haven't... Get. On. It! P.S. She told me I was her heroine. What??!! Day made. 🙂
