Older dykes recall the glory days of feminism. What attracted them to it and how it impacted on their lives.
In the mid-1990s a group shared their experiences at Ten Forty dinner and discussion evenings. Their stories were recorded on tape and now we've made them into a podcast.
4:flaunt is for flaunting the brilliance of lesbian writing in Australia today. Bumper 90 page issue out now.
