SET TO USHER IN THE GAY 90'S
WASHINGTON, D.C. -- The first meeting to organize a compre-
hensive national conference by, for and about lesbians, was
held here September 24 & 25, to launch coordination of the idea
born of the October 11, 1987 March on Washington for Lesbian &
Gay Rights. An ad-hoc group of east coast lesbians convened the
open meeting to begin to set goals and to establish the initial
planning structure for the conference, which is tentatively
scheduled for late 1989 early 1990.
The conference envisioned as the first of its kind, is
conceived as a broad-based coalition effort to set a lesbian
agenda for social, economic, and political change, to increase
lesbian visibility and to acknowledge lesbian diversity and
Regional planning meetings on the national lesbian
conference are being organized throughout the country in the
months ahead. The first national steering committee meeting,
with representatives chosen by each region at the regional
planning meetings is scheduled for the weekend of March 4-5, 1989
in Raleigh-Durham, N.C.
Lesbian interested in getting involved should watch for
local announcements of regional planning meetings. For more
