Dear Dumb Diary Ep. 2: I like girls

In the 1950s, the lesbian rights movement began in America. The Daughters of Bilitis was founded in San Francisco in 1955 by four female couples and was the first national lesbian political and social organization in America. 

From gay awakenings to the media’s fetishization of lesbians, guest María Valle Remond touches on the general ideas of lesbianism and coming out. Remond shares their lesbian life experience to shed light on the normality of finding one’s sexuality and how the coming out process can be both difficult and liberating. 

National organizations that have made it their mission to support, represent, and advocate for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and questioning groups that share a focus on child and youth welfare issues are listed here. Interested in being a guest on Dear Dumb Diary? Email [email protected]
