Current Pagan Studies Conference – Lesbiphobia in the Pagan Community

https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/HKN2LC9

This is the survey for all you folks that are not lesbians. Please fill it out as honestly as possible. They are anonymous, really, I promise.

I will be presenting my paper at the 10th Current Pagan Studies Conference at Claremont Graduate School – February 2014.

I know that some Lesbians feel they have been discriminated against but I don’t know if the rest of the community feels that they have done or seen any discrimination. I know past Pantheacons and Women’s Music Festivals and other Feminist oriented events have had those allegations made by both sides and I wanted to see what is true at least for now.

Thanks
