Who’s (still) a lesbian? Lesbian spaces and tools to include other marginalised orientations.
By Enrica Panaro

Which reflexive and practical tools exist to promote the inclusion of multiple self-identifications without erasing lesbian (political) identities? Multiple identifications and self-definitions (queer, bisexual, WSW, asexual, pansexual, women*, trans*, genderqueer, non-binary, etc.) can be a challenge to flyers, leaflets, group activities, workshops, etc. Is it possible to name everyone? Is the * enough? If you are interested in sharing your best practices on how to integrate a broader spectrum of sexualities, genders, practices and political identities in your activities/activism bring your material, your experience and your questions.
