Transcript TLC 90 IN SAN ANTONIO MAY 18-20 First Annual National Women's Recovery Roundup The Third Annual Texas Lesbian Conference will be held in San Antonio on May 18-20 at the Menger Hotel. TLC's San Antonio sponsor, Woman Space. has secured noted author, activist and teacher Joan Nestle as the keynote speaker. As co-founder of the Lesbian Herstory Archives in 1974, Nestle has dedicated her life to gathering, preserving, and documenting lesbian heritage. The Archives' extraordinary collections come from organiza- tions and individuals worldwide. Dedicated volunteers and friends maintain its extensive holdings. In additional to education, community outreach, and presentations of cultural events, the Archives sponsors special projects, such as the 90 minute documentary on the Daughters of Bilitis, the first membership organization for lesbians. "People like to hear about Willa Cather or Edna St. Vincent Millay or Bessie Smith or Edmonia Lewis, a few of the so-called famous lesbians. We must remember the common women who live historic lives without the protection of fame and social class to buffer them against a hostile world which felt—and still feels—lesbians have no right to exist," says Nestle. Joan Nestle is also a teacher in the SEEK Program at Queens College of the City College of New York, and the author of A Restricted Country, a political and biographical prose collection. She has also authored numerous articles, essays and books, in addition to speaking before varied audiences all over the country. She has been a member of the New York City lesbian and gay community for over thirty years. Letty Gomez will be the second keynote speaker at the Conference. Plans are underway for workshops, exhibits, a film festival, and an art show as part of the Conference.
