A right to the city? Virtual networks and ephemeral centralities for lesbians in Paris

Abstract : A large body of literature, mostly in English, now documents male homosexuals' ability to appropriate parts of the city to gain both urban and social visibility. Conversely, most work on lesbians points at their relative invisibility. This article looks at places that, since the 70s, have been opened for parties and outings for lesbians. Though these may be few in number and frequently instable, a degree of social and online networking establishes other geographies for lesbians' "right to the city". Though invisible to mainstream society, they testify to lesbians' ability to overcome spatial injustice.
