For your fix of all things queerstory, this is the content you need


This LGBT+ history month fill your feed with DIVA’s top lesbian history accounts giving you all the dyke, trans and non-binary content you need.


The largest and most iconic lesbian archive in the world, The Lesbian Herstory Archive (LHA), was founded in 1973 and today is housed in a brownstone building in New York. Joan Nestle, the founder of the LHA says of it: 

“It is for all of us, all lesbians who need to touch their past for whatever reason, to get through the day, to keep a child, to write a poem, to see a face of another time, to recover the fullness of ourselves in all expressions.” 

Their Instagram account is full of all their archival highlights including pictures from dyke marches throughout the late 20th century, posters, flyers, zines, badges and much much more. 


If you’re into your lesbian fashion then @dressingdykes is the Instagram account for you. Lesbian historian Eleanor Medhurst posts a range of delicious content exploring Sapphic fashion trends throughout history and their significance. Carabiners, handkerchiefs, dungarees, slogan tees, power suits, the colour lilac, Dr Martens, tuxedos and top hats all get mentions among many others. 



On Your Knees is a photo archive dedicated to dykes through the ages. The archive isn’t a physical one as such, but instead maintained through its own Instagram grid, how 2023! Featuring images from some of the most legendary lesbian magazine covers alongside some more niche, undiscovered gems it’ll make you love, laugh and cry with queer joy at our community’s beauty. 

DIVA magazine celebrates 29 years in print in 2023. If you like what we do, then get behind LGBTQIA media and keep us going for another generation. Your support is invaluable.
