This reflection booklet is one part of three in the Romantic Friendships series. I created these resources for the Canadian Centre for Gender and Sexual Diversity (CCGSD) to teach youth & educators about the history of women-loving-women. 'Romantic friendships' was a term often given to women in deep emotional and sometimes physical relationships, but this classification was dependent on women's position in society. Racialized and lower-class women were called many other names, and faced greater persecution for their relationships. 
In this booklet, you can read more about my motivations in putting this series together, and why I think this history is still relevant for us today. The graphic design is meant to evoke the many letters traded between these women in their relationships. On the cover, you can actually catch a glimpse of my own transcription of an actual letter sent between two women.
