The second gathering we can lcok forward to is billed as a
Lesbian History Exploration, to be held in a secluded camp outside
of Los Angeles, May 2-4, 1975. This Is to be "a sharing of information and emotion, a rite, a collecting of materials in written,
aural, and visual form" to present and recreate our history drawn
from research, personal testimonies and first hand reports, folklore,
mythology, and the stories of lost women. The Lesbian History Collective is coordinating the effort under the auspices of "Good Taste
Productions" and invites all to participate by helping to plan,
sending or bringing material, attending or donating funds to the
Exploration. Registration is $35 or $65 depending on one's financial
situation. As part of the promotional campaign, a Lesbian History
Exploration poster has been printed which presents small samples
of possible areas of exploration. It is available far $1.00 (Be
the first on your block.') Invitational packets are available far
25*. Anyone needing additional Information, posters, packets, or
wishing to attend should contact Pokey or me.
Our own hoped-for Spring festivity (the Rite of Spring) has
come a step closer to reality with our first generous offer of
land. Additional land offers, persons interested in working on
any of the various aspects of this enterprise, or with any ideas, give
Pokey a call as soon as possible and help bring this fantasy to life,'
