The Purple Golf Cart is the memoir of a Florida woman who hid her lesbian identity for over 20 years. When she finally came out, she lost custody of her two young children which thrust her into activism fueled by anger. But it was her irreverent sense of humor that helped her to survive. This is also the story of the repressive laws that gave Florida its anti-gay reputation, including the John’s Committee witch hunts in Florida’s education system, and of the effects that the Anita Bryant campaign affected a lesbian mother and her family. This is a story of resilience and of passion for social justice. Deep depression and failed relationships gave way to forgiveness, success, and self-love along with a strong spirituality that brought a woman from homelessness and the depths of despair to becoming a professor at UCLA and a happy, loving grandma. This is the story of one woman's dance through life from difficult discoveries to sweet reunions. It is the story of the heartfelt joy of an unconventional grandma!
