Julie Lee

Julie Lee was an early and important member of the Daughters of Bilitis. She worked as a secretary and lesbian counselor for the DOB and kept up correspondence with a large number of women from across the United States, advising them on various issues including finding support, coming out, various personal issues, and locating literature, as well as general topics relating to lesbianism. Although she generally told the younger set to wait until they had reached the age of majority before locating and joining a DOB group, her writings invariably reached a large number of lesbians and helped them accept themselves and locate the support and resources they needed.
