Description
This collection contains the transcripts of a series of conversations that took place between Michelle Johnston and four other women through the Prodigy internet service provider between 1991 and 1992. Johnston documented and donated this collection of transcripts to the June L. Mazer Archives in order to insure the voices of "ordinary dykes" were included in the archives. As such these are ordinary conversations between women living in California, some of them lesbians who were out, and some who were not.
