A shadowy figure of lesbian culture, third-generation Bay Area native BETH ELLIOTT continues to write, make music, engage in feminist activism, and pursue her Goddess visions in a way true to her counterculture roots. Though she shares responsibility for some early milestones in lesbian freedom, she ended up a women’s community outlier at a young age. She credits this with pushing herself to explore her individual creativity, calling it a simple “lack of adult supervision.” Her songs delight with their wit, even the darker ones.
