Diane Germain is a French-American lesbian-feminist psychiatric social worker who created and conducted a strength group for Women Survivors of Incest and/or Childhood Molest for five years. She was one of the founding mothers of Dykes on Hikes, The Lesbian Referral Service, Beautiful Lesbian Thespians, and California Women’s Art Collective; an early principal of the San Diego Lesbian Organization; and a collective member of Califia Community—a feminist education retreat. She was arrested and jailed for protesting the objectification of women in the “Myth CaliPORNia Kontest” in 1986. She creates humor as a hedge against the misogyny of heterosexist phallocentric patriarchy and to tickle the lesbians.
