"A riveting unique first hand telling of a dangerous, fractious, creative lesbian time, the lesbian feminist 70s with their messy, sexy, bold social and personal visions live again on Cordova's pages; she was thick in the middle of things, as a journalist, as an activist, as a lover."
--Joan Nestle, editor of A Persistent Desire, A Femme Butch Reader and GENDERqUEER, Voices from Beyond the Sexual Binary.
For LGBT people who care about activism, especially those young enough to have no memory of those iconic times, Córdova's "memoir of love and revolution" should be a must-read.”
--Filed By Patricia Nell Warren
"When We Were Outlaws is content-rich and driven by a compelling plot. These two things make reading When We Were Outlaws a joy."
--Lambda Literary, The Gay &Lesbian Review by Julie R. Enszer
"When We Were Outlaws, is such an important addition to the literary cannon of LGBT non-fiction. The book manages to be captivating, heartbreaking, and gratifying all at once.”
--The Advocate by Diane Anderson Minshall
About the Author
Top Customer Reviews
The author shares her views on the politics of the time period with a first person account of the hard struggle for equality. For Cordova, the women's rights movement and the Lesbian movement are the same and are fought for the same reasons. The Civil Rights Movement and the anti-establishment are represented in the trenches and on the battlefield of the streets of Los Angeles, California.
The romantic struggle is as real for any gender or preference as it was for her. Torn between loves and making the same mistakes we all have between work, love and friendship.
Jeanne Cordova should write more about this period; hell, she should just write more, period (no pun intended!). :)
