Now online, The Lesbian Avengers Eat Fire Too!

On June 28, 1992 six activist dykes threw down the gauntlet: "LESBIANS! DYKES! GAY WOMEN!... We're wasting our lives being careful. Imagine what your life could be. Aren't you ready to make it happen?"

By 1994, a multitude had responded. Twenty thousand dykes marched on Washington. More than sixty chapters sprang up worldwide. The Lesbian Avengers also took "out" gay activism where it had never been before — into the heart of heartland politics where they successfully beat back anti-gay legislation in rural Idaho.

What happens next?!

Answering the essentials. Who the heck were they? What did they accomplish? How did they pull it off?

We've got big plans for 2015: putting more resources online, in more languages, and creating links between LGBT people worldwide from New York to Ankara to Paris. We not only share Avenger histories, but encourage new activists to go forth and wreak havoc for the sake of dyke lives. More. ..
