Author Biography - Joan Nestle
Joan Nestle is a lesbian feminist and co-founder of the Lesbian Herstory Archives. With a long and proud history as an activist, she started writing erotic stories in 1979 and in 1982 ran afoul of the anti-pornography movement, thus becoming a fervent pro-sex activist in the "Sex Wars". She has two collections of writings, A Restricted Country and A Fragile Union. She taught at Queens College until 1995, when she was forced to retire due to cancer.
