We’re the true Lesbians

RESIDENTS of the Greek island of Lesbos have launched a legal case against a gay group, insisting they are the real Lesbians. Two inhabitants of the island of Lesbos along with a member of a Nationalist Pagan Association today launched a legal case to ban the Greek Gay and Lesbian Union (OLKE) from bearing the name “lesbian”. Lesbos was the home of the poet Sappho, who expressed her love of other women in lyric verses written in the early sixth century BC. Lesbos residents now suffer “psychological and moral rape” from the “seizure” of their island’s name by gays, said the activist Dimitris Lambrou, in a text titled The Misfortune of Being Lesbian, published on his website.

Mr Lambrou believed the case will be judged in Athens in June. “This affair is totally ridiculous,” said OLKE spokeswoman Evangelia Vlami. “But if we are summoned by the courts, we will be heard.” Lesbos is often referred to in Greece as Mytilene, the island’s capital. The resort of Eressos is a popular tourist destination for lesbians visiting the Aegean island in the northeast of the Orthodox Christian country.
