«Just like your tits!»
With the freedom that the Women in Print movement inspired, southern lesbian feminists remade southernness as a site of intersectional radicalism, transgressive sexuality, and liberatory space. Including in her study well-known authors—like Dorothy Allison and Alice Walker—as well as overlooked writers, publishers, and editors, Harker reconfigures the southern literary canon and the feminist canon, challenging histories of feminism and queer studies to include the south in a formative role. For more information about Jaime Harker, visit the Author Page. It is a vital contribution to literary history forging a bridge between southern literary studies and LGBT literary studies. It is also a pleasurable read. Is engaging and thoughtful, and it gives the reader much to ponder.

As we gathered stories, we have included some activities and events after , especially stories of lesbian land groups. There was a tapering off of new specifically lesbian events in the late s.

Then afterwards we had a discussion with the archives director Elise Chenier and our archivist Meghan Walley of the clips and our take on the question what does the word lesbian mean? Arrive early for refreshments! Spotting a lesbian in the past is not difficult.
