The 70s Dyke Movement

The 70s Dyke Movement

This woman was walking around Taos Pride asking folks to petition for a local cause. Our photojournalist asked for an interview, and discovered this very woman was a large force in the dyke movement of the 70s.

I am 72 years old and have been a lesbian since age 23, although there were a few years in there I was going back and forth between my female lover and my fiancé. I never came out to my parents when I was younger. I think they knew, but they made it clear that they did not want to discuss it by saying very bigoted things. I feel kind of bad about that whole situation.
I got into lesbian publishing for a while and published the book ‘What Lesbians Do,’ in 1975. I was in the west coast dyke scene back in the 70s, and that was a great scene. It was so lively.

Marilyn Hoff was big in the lesbian movement in the 70s and was published in a book,’Feminists Who Changed America, 1963-1975.’
