(Editor's note: Wendy Sue Biegeleisen is a well-known activist in San Diego. As our community is getting ready to celebrate Pride, she looks back at the history of LGBT rights from the lesbian and feminist points of view.)
Once upon a time, gay men respected lesbians and we fought together for equal rights.
This discussion of “lesbian and gay vs. gay and lesbian” has been happening since the Stonewall era. After I came out in 1976 and joined the fight for equality, I was involved in many, many of these discussions.
