Judy Grahn

Grahn has been at the forefront of gay and lesbian activism and women’s spirituality movements since the 1960s. Her works have been a rallying cry for women’s movements since before she was ever published, going viral before the internet even existed. She serves as a research faculty member for the Institute of Transpersonal Psychology in Palo Alto.

She is former director of the women’s spirituality and creative inquiry graduate programs at New College of California. Other books include love belongs to those who do the feeling (Red Hen Press, 2008); Blood, Bread and Roses (Beacon Press, 1994); and Edward the Dyke and Other Poems (The Women’s Press Collective, 1971).
