Marriage and Family
 
While glbtq people have formed unions, partnerships, de facto marriages, and many kinds of families for generations, one of the greatest shifts in the history of the family began in the 1990s when queer families began to insist more vocally that they receive the same societal benefits as traditional families.

  Lesbian and Bisexual Female Literature Since Stonewall

Lesbian and Bisexual Female American Literature Since Stonewall
 
Politics is implicit in much of the Lesbian Literature that immediately followed the Stonewall Riots. The "new," reactivated, women's movement had as much to do with the tone and character of lesbian writing during these years as the developing (largely male) gay liberation movement. In more recent years, lesbian literature has grown to address more diverse themes, though much of it remains politically inflected.

Lesbian Paris (ca 1900-1940)
 
From the late nineteenth century until World War II, Paris was a center of sexual freedom and same-sex sexual cultures. Lesbian American and European expatriates and France's own lesbian writers and artists created a Bohemian social, sexual, and creative milieu that makes this time and place unique in the history of lesbian culture.
