Exploring Gender: the GENDER book

Written by

gender book

Most people who come to question gender or who have loved ones who are gender-variant must educate themselves about gender. There is no definitive way to come across the knowledge needed to navigate gender respectfully. Started by a group of people in Houston, Texas who wanted to create a sort of basic textbook on gender when finding there was none, the GENDER book was created to illustrate clearly and in a creative way the gender binary, the differences between gender and sex, and different identities along the gender spectrum.

Sappho is currently visiting her friend Erinna, a fellow poet on Greek Island of Tilos in the Aegean Sea archipelago.

She hopes you will like the poems below written by Sappho and Erinna.  Erinna was a fellow poet, peer and friend of Sappho’s in 4th century BC Greece. Erinna was also considered to be a Lesbian and Mytilenean because of her close association with Sappho although she hailed from the neighboring island of Tilos or Telos.

Dear Sappho,

I recently heard that Sappho was once exiled from Lesbos. Why was she in exile? What are some of the political and social dynamics that influenced her life and her poetry?
