Join Kelli and Anne for their 186th NEW episode!

Their special guest today is Author Leslie Cohen with her newly released memoir, The Audacity Of A Kiss: Love, Art and Liberation. She has an incredibly interesting life and it is beautifully written about in this new book. Leslie has been a museum curator, a nightclub owner and promoter, a limousine driver, and a lawyer, as well as a writer whose work has appeared in such publications as Curve and The New York Times Style Magazine. In the book she takes the reader on her journey through all of these different times in her life all while the world was changing and very complicated to live as a gay man or lesbian. In 1976 Leslie and 3 close friends opened the groundbreaking women’s club Sahara. She chats about what that time was like and how it has changed for her over time. She also talks about her lifelong love affair with her wife Beth and how they were chosen as models for the iconic Gay Liberation sculpture created by artist George Segal that is now in Christopher Park in the West Village. She talks about why she decided to tell her story and what she hopes people take away from the book. For more information about Leslie and to purchase the book, go to
