May 28, 2018

It’s a story where at one moment you’re crying from laughter and the next from pain and heartache. For Lara Lillibridge, it’s simply her story. The author and writer who lives in Cleveland, was raised in Irondequoit where she experienced an upbringing unlike many other kids in the seventies and eighties. That childhood is detailed in a new memoir by Lillibridge titled "Girlish: Growing Up In A Lesbian Home." Lillibridge recently visited the Need to Know set to share her powerful story  - a memoir one described as “absolutely of its time.”
