She’s Got the Beat

Allison Miller and Boom Tic Boom celebrate 10 years of jazz rhythm with Glitter Wolf.
Shervin Lainez

Allison Miller does it all. Whether she is touring with her own band, Boom Tic Boom, for the release of their fifth studio album, Glitter Wolf, or playing drums for musical heavyweights like Sara Bareilles and Ani DiFranco, or teaching at The New School, it seems like Miller can do just about anything, and she does it all well. The release of Glitter Wolf marks the 10-year anniversary of Boom Tic Boom, and the album is a celebratory joyride showcasing the talent of both Miller and her whole band. The fact that they’ve stayed together so long is a bit of an anomaly in the jazz world, a fact not lost on Miller.

About Curve

This year marks the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall uprising, but it also marks the anniversary of something else: almost 30 years of publishing Curve magazine. I couldn’t be prouder to be the editor-in-chief of the world’s best-known lesbian magazine, but the person who needs to take the credit for Curve’s very existence is Frances “Franco” Stevens. I’m very excited to share with readers the news that a new documentary is being made about Franco and her dream to run a lesbian magazine that would reflect our community in all its truth and diversity. I’m also happy to report that I met with the film’s director and producer (Jen Rainin and Rivkah Beth Medow) and they got me on camera to tell my story of what the magazine means to me; I am but one of many women featured in this film, and there are countless more whose lives have been enriched by Franco’s vision. I’ll be doing everything I can to support this project, which is titled Ahead of the Curve. Maybe you’d like to contribute, too. If you feel like chipping in a few dollars on Kickstarter or even just supporting the project on social media—follow #CurveMagMovie and #AheadOfTheCurve. This documentary is made by an entirely female-identified crew dedicated to lesbian visibility, one of our most powerful tools to combat discrimination. So in the spirit of lesbian trailblazers like Franco, Happy Stonewall 50, and Happy WorldPride!
