Making a Scene Lesbians and Community across Canada, 1964-84 by Liz Millward

Scholars and students of gender and sexuality studies, women's studies, cultural geography, and critical geography will welcome this book, as will anyone interested in lesbian and women's history.


This well-researched study of twenty formative years of lesbian community-building in Canada covers a lot of ground ... Millward has captured the flavor of an era by combining data from previous studies with eyewitness accounts and black-and-white photos from private collections. She proposes a symbiotic relationship between self-defined lesbians and their scene or social milieu: a lesbian identity requires a social context, and vice versa. -- Jean Roberta * The Gay and Lesbian Review *
