Welcome to our new website
There are so many stories that deserve to be told, preserved, shared, and celebrated. Stories that have ended, stories still in process, stories that have changed the way we see ourselves and the way we are seen by others … including your own story and memorabilia as well!
Over the next months and years, our collection will expand with donations from Lesbians across the New England region. Please wander through our website to learn more.
WHERE are we?
The Wanderground archives currently reside in a private home. However, we do provide “pop-up” events in the New England region to show samplings from the collection. If you are interested in hosting us in your community, please contact: firstname.lastname@example.org
YES – we will become a public venue open to individuals who are curious or doing research. The Stewards are working to launch a capital campaign sometime in 2024 so that we can locate and move into a suitable building. If you have experience to support our efforts, we invite you to contact us!
Fun DYKE Facts
Created in 1986, the D.Y.K.E. (Do You Know Enough?) game offers insights into Lesbian living, culture, and community. This fun and informative game features many accomplishments by Lesbians in categories of Arts, Earth Science, Fun & Games, Music & Entertainment, Ourstory, and Potluck. Julia Penelope, Flowing (Margaret Johnson), and Sarah Valentine developed 500 cards each with six questions for a total of 3,000 trivia questions. See the complete game instructions here.
To keep Lesbian Heritages visible, explore our site to see a new question pop-up on a different webpage at different times during a week. We hope this will encourage your curiosity to learn more about past Lesbian life and cultures. Please note: To maintain herstorical accuracy, we present the wordings and spellings exactly as they are on the card.
