Women

The history of gay women is long and storied. From the creation of western civilization, same-sex attraction between women underlies some of the greatest works of art, from Sappho’s poetry to Gertrude Stein’s writing to the revolutionary thought of Audre Lorde. While history has privileged the experiences of gay men over that of gay women, they have existed side-by-side since day one, fighting many of the same struggles, and celebrating many of the same victories. Pride has the newest stories about the culture of gay women, from political struggles to health issues to representation is popular media. Check it out!
