The genesis of LesbianLegacy.com occurred when sitting among a group of women someone starting playing Chris Williamson’s Changer and the Changed and all the older women sang the lyrics from heart while the younger women looked on, puzzled. We realized how much history was present in the room. The accomplishments of older lesbians have enabled lesbian cultural life to exist today as it does. This site is a resource about common as well as well-known women who have lived uncommon lives—or at the very least, been true to themselves as lesbians and thus given us the power of their example.
