In the Beginning
Lesbian.org first began in the mid-1990’s and was one of the first major web sites for lesbians. For many years the site provided a comprehensive list of web links and also hosted discussion lists and web sites for lesbian-oriented non-profits. The site also sponsored a lesbian literary journal called Sapphic Ink.
Now that the web has grown and changed, the site is undergoing a redesign in the hopes of serving the needs of lesbians who have not yet found their home on the web. I’m open to input from visitors but also have a few ideas about what the site might do.
I’m thinking of reviving Sapphic Ink and would also like to showcase lesbian authors. I’ve posted some book reviews I wrote several years ago and will continue to add more book and film reviews.
I’d like to create a space for lesbian academics, perhaps specifically those interested in the field of lesbian studies. I may also offer select users the opportunity to have their own columns or blogs on lesbian.org, particularly non-profits or scholars. Contact me for more info.
I welcome your input on what you’d like to see on a site like this. Feel free to use the Contact link above or post a comment on this message (which you can do without signing up for anything).
Thanks for stopping by!
