    1. i confess I stole the book from my working class suburban library in 1981 when I was 19maybe the guilt was too much for me and that s why I had to open Gifts of Athena Cleveland s only Feminist bookstore 20 years later make books about women and queers available to any baby dyke who wanted themd she maybe could see some folks that looked like her and maybe she wouldn t have to steal books to avoid looking the Lady librarian in the eyed maybe she could know she wasn t the only one, and that actua [...]


    2. Oh, my gosh I d completely forgotten about this book I read it as a teenager at my local public library If I remember correctly, I stuffed it under my shirt, and then read it in a back corner tucked inside another less conspicuous book I was a baby dyke needing to know that there were other womyn like me Ah, that was so many years ago


    3. youtube watch v FGOnoPI found the above video posted by someone I don t know on one of my ex s walls on Facebook It is an interview done by different teens, each of them interviewing a different older person of the gay community who came out in the 1950s The lesbian that was interviewed was the author of this book s life partner, who helped write the book Phyllis Lyon It was inspiring I find it funny that one of the men who was interviewed talked about getting kicked out of ROTC for being gay, a [...]


    4. A classic cultural and now historical book written by two women at the forefront of the gay and lesbian movement prior to Stonewall After Del Martin died on August 29, 2008, I picked up the book from the library but wasn t sure I would even read it, given all the other books on my shelf Once I started, I realized what a good reminder it was of how far lesbians have come So many of the women Del and Phyllis Lyon met through the Daughters of Bilitis struggled with their sexual identities and the p [...]


    5. I bought this book because I had read an article about Del Martin in the Portland news around the time of her death I thought a book written about the lesbian lifestyle as it existed 30 years ago, written by someone of her age and experience, would be fascinating She and her partner were together for over 50 years and spent their younger years in a much different social climate, when it was apparently pretty dangerous to be openly homosexual The book was mildly interesting, but I lost interest a [...]


    6. I recently had the privilege of meeting Phyllis Lyon and having an in depth conversation with her about her life She and Del were way ahead of the curve back in the 1950s when their relationship began and when they started the Daughters of Bilitis Although Lesbian Woman was written forty years ago, it s amazing to me how much of it is still relevant today Del Martin and Phyllis Lyon, through their own experiences and with conversations of other members of DOB, present a picture of the lesbian ex [...]


    7. This is an awesome book written by two trailblazers, Del Martin Phyllis Lyons If you identify as a Lesbian, this should be on your must read list This is one of those timeless books, full of history common sense advise for women I highly recommend it
