Overview

From many parts of the USA, and from various walks of life, we are all old lesbians who want to tell our stories. Some of us have been lesbians all of our lives, and others later came out in life. Many of our contributors thanked us for inviting them to tell their stories. We asked each woman to introduce herself, and pick one moment in her life that stands out as her Brief Moment of âFameâ (their own definition of fame).

Why did we call ourselves âOldâ lesbians and not older lesbians? We debated this for a while since some women in their 50âs and 60âs considered themselves either middle aged or âolderâ, but not old. They still fear the word old.

Ageism is another word added to the list that identifies hurt, fear, and discrimination. Sexism still holds power in Americaâs patriarchal society. Sexual orientation is on the bottom of the list. The history of our past still reaches out to culturally bind us as women earning less than men, nurturing children alone, and tending the home. However, within this list, we are feminists, lesbians, and now finally old. We are the many who have found our way, recognize who we are, and will celebrate our lives. We took charge of our lives, and embrace âOldâ as a virtue of earned respect as we continue this celebration. We believe our country, too, will learn to respect âOldâ by taking pride in our experience, knowledge, and especially our equal humanity.
