What do Lesbian Avengers do?

San Francisco Avengers:

March 19 and 26, 1997: Along with hundreds of other activists, Avengers join in the powerful chorus of voices demanding justice for Aaron Williams, an African-American man who was killed by cops. One of the cops, Marc Andaya, has been guilty of numerous racist attacks during his time on the force -- even the Chief of Police recommended a harsher punishment than the Police Commission gave him! What's up? Fire Andaya! Hold the police accountable for their actions!


On 21 February 1997 a bomb went off at the Otherside, a primarily gay and lesbian bar in Atlanta, Ga. On 23 February 1997 The Atlanta Chapter of the Lesbian Avengers organized a rally near the bomb site.

Washington D.C.:

August 14th, 1996: Protested the Chritsian Coalition's national agenda. The action began with fire eating in Dupont Circle Park and continued to join the Pride, Faith and Anger march along Conneticut Avenue to join the NOW demonstration at the Washington Hilton - where the Christian Coalition was holding a national convention. As part of the march, The Lesbian Avengers featured a crucified Lesbian being led along "The Stations of the Christian Coalition Cross." The stations included "Homophobia," "Patriarchy," "Censorship," and "Church State."


On December 2nd, 1995, Cambridge's Porter Square branch of Jenny Craig was the unintended host to the First Annual Lesbian Avenger Eat Out. Dykes of all sizes fed themselves and each other outside Jenny Craig while handing out our flier "Women Should not Live on Bread Alone" (which outlined how the diet industry perpetuated racism and sexism and was therefore operated by the devil's minions).

Is the Lesbian Avengers right for me?
  • Does it bother you when people at work assume you have a boyfriend?
  • Does it bother you for every dollar a man makes a woman makes $.70?
  • Do you want to do something positive with your anger?
  • Do you need to get connected with other dykes?
  • Do you like to meet unconventional chicks?
  • Do you long to be a public lesbian?
  • Do you dream of walking topless down Market Street carrying a Lesbian Avenger banner?
  • Do you want to learn to eat fire?
  • Do you want to make your ideas into actions?
  • Do you hope to perpetuate the matriarchy?
  • Do you enjoy creating guerilla art?
  • Would you relish the opportunity to be out & proud on National news networks?

If you answered yes to 2 or more of these questions, RUN, don't walk, to our meetings and join a small band of pissed off activists aka the Lesbian Avengers to constructively release your anger toward the heterosexist, racist, classist, etc...society.
