About WMM’s two first issues

WMN is a publication of art and poetry which showcases work by underrepresented lesbian groups.

The first issue “Seasons of a Dyke” features work by lesbians living in rural areas and cities with a population of 800,000 and less in the US.

The second issue “Show Me What You Got” presents art and poetry by older generation dykes. Both issues are available now!
