Help Inspire a New Generation

Our big goal this year is to re-release the 1993 documentary video, Lesbian Avengers Eat Fire Too. We've already captioned speakers, and made it available free online. Soon, we will be adding subtitles to this extraordinary resource, which means every dyke in the universe will be a click away from our shared story! We will also offer a shorter version for easier use in the classroom.

A mini-festival and traveling exhibits are on the drawing board to celebrate the Lesbian Avengers' rich legacy, share the project, and inspire discussions about activism, including the role of direct action, and the importance of media.

Sharing activist resources is an essential part of the project. Available now, free versions of Avenger handbooks, both A Handy Guide to Homemade Revolution and LACROP's Out Against the Right giving step-by-step instructions on planning direct actions and organizing effective grassroots campaigns. Print and e-book versions are coming soon.

This website is the heart of the documentary project. We'll be adding regularly to the histories, timelines, and collection of primary source material including digitized flyers annotated with the designer's own comments, press releases, photos, and news clippings. Soon we'll be posting segments of video interviews from our oral history project.

In their own words, former Avengers will describe why they joined, what they did, and how it all worked, from getting press coverage for actions to the intricacies of running a kissing booth.

Help us get it done! Even a few bucks helps.
