Naiad Press was first established in 1973 and brought lesbian publications directly to the masses, since few bookstores would carry books about lesbian lives. Bella proudly offers many of these Naiad titles, giving us an opportunity to help carry on the legacy first started by these pioneering women. Right now, these ebooks are on sale for a limited time.
