“Born-Again Lesbian” examines queer women’s understandings of their identities during World War II and the 1950s by synthesizing existing knowledge about the growth and increasing interconnectedness of lesbian communities and incorporating largely unused written accounts, interviews, and lesbian literature to position lesbians at the center of their own historical narrative.
