Newsletter 6, lists a scope of the collection, an account
of activities such as the "At Home" series,
slide shows and fundraisers, and a beginning bibliography
on Lesbians working together.
To make sure nobody could see the contents through the
thin envelope, we added an extra cover, with simply
the word "Newslette" on it. It was never our
intent to "out" women by accidentally exposing the kind
of material they received in the mail: respecting women's
privacy has always been important to us. On the cover:
a photograph of the Archives' contingent at the Gay
Pride March, showing our large signs with faces of famous
and not so famous lesbians.
In the newsletter: a guide to our collections including
the second poetry update, special collections and a
piece on issues of naming- a couple of paragraphs on
how the term "women's" often muddles the issue.
A quote: "So; no more eufemisms. Women's music
is lesbian music. Women's culture is lesbian culture."
