Fag Hag

Fag Hag

Lola Miesseroff was born in Marseilles in 1947 to immigrant parents, her mother a Russian-Jewish social worker, her father an Armenian-Russian with a sandpaper-making workshop in sheds left behind by the Americans. The family ran and lived in a nudist colony, a place where the men were allowed to be feminine, the women masculine. Hers was what she calls a 'degendered' childhood. Lola's picaresque memoir 'Fag Hag' tracks her peregrinations through what she calls the 'Outer Left' - always deeply committed and involved in women's liberation, sexual liberation, gay, and LBGTQ liberation - yet always on the fringe of formal organisations (or driven there) because of her belief that anarcho-communist revolution (not her term) trumps all (inter)sectional struggles without reducing them.
