Beginning as a tiny San Francisco social club in 1955, the Daughters of Bilitis soon organized local chapters in New York, Los Angeles and beyond, incubating many figures on the lesbian political and literary scene until the organization waned in the 1970s. Author Marcia Gallo draws on many interviews with pivotal DOB figures, focusing on the tensions that drove the group’s evolution: lesbian commonality versus race; class and ethnic differences; political activism versus social activities; collaboration with other homophile organizations versus independence; women’s rights versus gay rights.
