Younger lesbians nowadays


Bridget doesn’t think young lesbians are the same as in the 70s/80s, she doesn’t think they are politicised. “In our day, the Iraq/Iran thing, we had our doc martens on and would be going somewhere, not just about gay and lesbian issues, we would have been out there as an identified group, ‘Lesbians against the Iraq War’. I don’t see that happening now, though not just gays, but young people generally, are too comfortable now, they are all products of Mrs Thatcher. It’s a pity there isn’t more organised protest these days”. Barbara said “We don’t have a lot to do with young people other than at work, but we’re not on the scene so have very limited contact with young lesbians, but if there was stuff going on we would have heard about it. ‘It’s about me, me, me’”.
