The Legacies of Lesbian Literature project will be a comprehensive documentary that examines the history of lesbian literature and how key authors' works had significant impact not only on the genre, but also society at large. Documentation of the history of lesbian literature has not been done in any similar format to date. Recognition of the significance of lesbian writing, and its impact on so many lives, as well as society’s views of homosexuality, needs to be documented and expressed. The initial focus of the Legacies of Lesbian Literature project is on the development of lesbian fiction from the 1920’s through current times.
During Phase 1, the following authors will be interviewed, focusing primarily on the literary work shown. We are currently in production.
