I think Our Bodies Ourselves was first printed in 1973 and The Joy of Lesbian Sex in '88
with those fabulous drawings
I remember when JoAnn Loulan "came out" that she was in a relationship with a man
And Holly Near was as well but she but never stopped performing at the women's festivals although she would be asked about it occasionally
Loulan seemed to have a much harder time of it though in queer women's community
I don't know why there was such disparity in their treatment
(even Butch/Femme was still an ongoing controversy!)-but maybe it was down to their respective communities ?
