Lesbian Narratives

Room Leslie Feinberg

Seeing yourself represented in stories, be they fairytales or press articles, is important for our well-being as lesbians. In this session we discuss constructing narratives of refugee lesbian maternity, the political detention case of Karla and Magda, and also LGBTQI+ representation in French children’s literature.
