People Of Lesbos Suing Lesbian Group Over Name

June 10, 2008


Three people, two women and a man, from the Island of Lesbos told a court this week that gay women insult their home’s identity by calling themselves lesbians. In a lawsuit, they are seeking to ban a Greek gay rights group from using the word “lesbian” in its name. Ironically, the island of Lesbos, also known as Mytilini, was the home of the ancient poet Sappho, who praised love among women, and thus a major travel destination for gay women.

The lawusit proports that the Homosexual and Lesbian Community of Greece “causes confusion by using a geographic term in connection with (the group’s) special character and social action,” said Dimitris Papadelis, a lawyer representing the plaintiffs from the island.

Plaintiff Dimitris Lambrou insisted the lawsuit “is not an aggressive act against gay women.”
The court is expected to issue its decision in the next six months.
