Lesbians are everywhere

**LESBIAN MOVEMENTS: RUPTURES & ALLIANCES is a collection of experiences from those involved in lesbian, civil society and human rights movements worldwide.


Lesbians have always been present in various civil society movements, with gay men’s organizations, in feminist groups, as well as in the artistic sphere and in the fight for decolonization and independence of their country. In recent decades lesbians have been present in the fight for equal rights for women of colour, aborigen women, and more broadly with feminist movements.
