When false ideas prescribe our existence, our lives are limited, our communities are diminished, and we are, sadly, set against one another. In Countering the Myths, lesbians write about fathers, brothers, lovers, friends, co-workers, and strangers. Their words are cautious, tender, urgent, and angry. They dispute entrenched myths and provoke instead difficult questions. Their stories and poems provide an opportunity to unite in an exciting and liberating lesbian sexuality and life.
