Lesbian Avenger Handbooks

New Edition June 1!

Still, an incredible organizing tool for any activist group, The Lesbian Avenger Handbook: A Handy Guide to Homemade Revolution made it possible for lesbians across the world to start Avenger chapters without having a huge pool of experienced activists, journalists, artists. Don't know how to run a meeting? You'll get complete instructions for that in the handbook. Never organized an action? You'll find step-by-step instructions from brainstorming, to writing press release, designing flyers, and even dealing with cops.

We're pleased to announce a new, updated edition now geared towards historians, too, as well as scholars focused on media and social change. New content includes dozens of additional pages of Avenger Communiqués, great original source material reporting on fire-eating demos, fear-defying zaps, and provocative kiss-ins. We also offer an essay on the Lesbian Avengers Civil Rights Organizing Project, and material from their own organizing handbook, Out Against the Right.

To see the original versions, check out the column to the right!
