Program Title:
The Lesbians / interviewed by Charles Hayden.
PRA Archive #: 

An informal discussion between nine lesbians, all in their early-to-mid-twenties, recorded at an apartment in New York City's Greenwich Village and moderated by Charles Hayden (later Randolfe Hayden "Randy" Wicker). The women discuss how one becomes a lesbian, their relationships with their parents, and how they relate to gay and straight men and women. They talk about how the straight world perceives them, comparing lesbian relationships to those of heterosexual and gay male couples, and the difference between sexual and emotional ties between women. The group discusses whether they feel there is less prejudice amongst lesbians compared to straight people the stability of lesbian relationships, and whether society should legally recognize lesbian relationships.
