  • The term “lesbian” is defined in the Oxford English Dictionary as “relating to homosexual women or to homosexuality in women”.  However the work is derived from the Greek work “lesbos” which was an island in Greece upon which the archaic Greek poet Sappha lived who wrote her poems about other women.  The GSA has hidden rainbows around the school to celebrate pride!  If you find one bring it to a member of the GSA or to our meeting at lunch on Thursday in Room 217 for a prize.
