Vancouver’s Boldfest Celebrates Older Lesbians and Dykes

4-7 September 2014

This year, the Bold Woman of the Year recipient is the publisher of the iconic magazine, The Lesbian Connection (the longest running, worldwide lesbian publication for more than 40 years). The award will be received by co-founder Margy Lesher.
