If the lipstick lesbian was the gay icon of the nineties, these days she’s
been replaced by her more controversial counterpart, the hasbian: a woman who
used to date women but now dates men. Though Anne Heche is the most prominent
example, many hasbians (sometimes called LUGS: lesbians until graduation) are
by-products of nineties liberal-arts educations. Caught up in the gay scene
at school, they came out at 20 or 21 and now, five or ten years later, are
finding themselves in the odd position of coming out all over again—as
heterosexuals. . . .
