"The Encyclopedia is a thorough, well-researched and for the most part impressive collection of notes on the who, what, where, why, and when of lesbians…The cross-cultural entries are some of the best I've seen in a project of this nature. For those entries alone, the Encyclopedia would be a fruitful addition to any home." -- Girlfriends
