The Lesbian Body

Sinister Wisdom 106: The Lesbian Body maps the body through poems, prose, essays, and stories. The Lesbian Body navigates elegance, vulnerability, and endurance found in the flesh. These poems and narratives connect bodies and how lesbians live through them; they express how lesbian bodies become both literal expressions of a truly lived life and the ground metaphor for lesbian being. Sinister Wisdom 106: The Lesbian Body documents how struggles, interactions, and words shape the relationship lesbians have with their bodies and physical selves.
