LHA Daughters of Bilitis Video Project: Judith Schwarz and Joan Nestle, Tape 1 of 1, November 14, 1992

Subject

Lesbian Studies, Bars, Mailing Lists, Abortion

Description

The interview begins with Judith Schwarz and her recollections of the late 1950s and early 1960s, and how she knew of women who were hesitant to join Daughters of Bilitis, as they simply wanted to meet women at the bar, and feared their names appearing with labels publicly. She also discusses how women were hesitant to receive mail from Daughters of Bilitis for the same reason. She also talks about her first woman lover, and the circumstances that led to that.
