The Lesbian Testimony Podcast: Episode 25

The Lesbian Testimony Podcast: Episode 25

“First I was a freak, then I was a queer, then I was a femme, then I was a lesbian feminist, I still am all these things, and then a queer femme lesbian feminist, I don't know if it's clear but maybe it's good that it's not clear. My primary definition is as a 50s femme.” - Joan Nestle

For episode 25 we talked to Joan Nestle, Lauren Hortie, Mary Woo Sims, Nadine Boulay and Selly Chiam about lesbian identification and identity formation surrounding the word lesbian. 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?

Thank you for a great year!
