One of the driving forces in the lives of many lesbians, is the search for community in a society that favours heterosexuality and often turns a cold shoulder towards women who love women. "Lesbian Communities" takes you inside flourishing lesbian communities - physical, spiritual, and virtual (online) - that provide practical help, emotional support, and much-needed outlets for creative expression. Exploring communities functioning in harmony with general society as well as separatist groups, "festival communities" which form for short times annually, and informal online groups offering meaningful communication to physically isolated lesbians, this book offers a ray of light to those whose search is still ongoing. It also provides much-needed analysis of the current state of lesbian communities - some decades old now - for educators, researchers, and social scientists. In "Lesbian Communities", Susan Krieger revisits the vibrant community she first explored in "The Mirror Dance". An African American member of Old Lesbians Organizing for Change shares the details of her search for a cooperative, caring space for aging lesbians - and what led to her eventual decision to create this space herself. And one of the founders of Hallomas, a back-to-the-land community that has survived in northern California since the late 1970s, reflects on that unique community's birth and life - with 13 photographs and illustrations. The book also bears witness to a life-changing encounter and dialogue between second-wave feminists from the woman's land collective of Arcadia and third wave feminists. From the efforts of back-to-the-land groups creating "wimmin's space" to life in modern residential/retirement settings, this book explores the places created by and for lesbians. Photos and illustrations bring these women and their communities to life. "Lesbian Communities: Festivals, RVs, and the Internet" will be both educational and inspirational for any lesbian exploring her options or searching for home
