Wow! Great history lesson. We definitely see history, down to the small themes and details, repeating itself. When I was what was then called a baby dyke I knew Jean Cordova who is mentioned here multiple times. We met in Los Angeles in 1977 (a few years after the events discussed in this history) Jean and I ran in the same lesbian feminist circles and volunteered in the same organization. I distinctly remember going out for dinner with her and a group of other friends, after an organizational meting. I was sitting next to her, a college student in awe of the accomplished, older activist. I had no idea about the controversy that occurred just a few years before about transvestites and transsexuals.
