Originally conceived and released on the About.com network as Lesbian Life, Lesbian Worlds made its debut in December 1997. As its online presence and popularity grew, Lesbian Life unearthed a strong need in our community - a need that to that point, had not being addressed by the then popular online LGBT sites.
Over time many lesbians and bisexual women voiced concerns and complaints of their inability to find information and resources on the issues and topics that affected their lives. Most noted that the then popular online LGBT sites were focused mainly on the needs and interests of the gay-male, leaving very little resources to support the lesbian and bisexual women community.
Filling that need in our community, as well as building a network of support and nurturing, became the backbone and life-blood of Lesbian Life. But by the beginning of 2001, the About network lost its direction and interest in serving the needs of its members, and Lesbian Life began to stagnate. By the summer of that year, in an effort to infuse spirit back into Lesbian Life, the site was removed from the About network and Lesbian Worlds was born.
Our goal at Lesbian Worlds is to continue to develop a vibrant community, fueled by ideas, information, resources, and support. It is our hope that we can build a community where every woman is accepted, no matter what her stage of self-acceptance may be.
Welcome to our community.
