About the Project

Insightful, subversie, and provocative, Dyke TV was activist television at its best. This innovative weekly half-hour cable television program mixed art, news, sports, political commentary, health coverage, music, and video, as it examined issues of lesbian culture.


The arts segments of the programming presented a comprehensive range of lesbian-identified artists, including talented filmmakers and dancers, outrageous comics and singers, and amazing painters and poets. In 1993, the roster featured artists such as choreographer Elizabeth Streb, performance artist Reno, and painter Nicole Eisenmann.
