Portmanteau List: A Beginner's Guide to Lesbian Culture


“Lovers” “ — Title Unknown — ” by Kenne Gregoire (1951)

The following lists are by no means comprehensive but merely a personalised expanded guiding arrows in the general direction of lesbian culture, which include different tastes and intersectional identities. There is no order of any sort, neither preference nor genre nor groupings nor alphabetical order - I wrote them down as they came to me or as I went along my shelves or bookmarks etc. It's unlikely all will appeal to all, so there's a range to try and have at least a few enjoyable and identifiable references for most. It's a starting point to expand from depending on the branch which calls out and appeals to you and which you decide to follow.
