Lesbos is a Greek island located in the northeastern Aegean Sea. Its population is approximately 90,000, a third of which lives in its capital, Mytilene, in the southeastern part of the island. Its inhabitants are called 'Lesbians', which is also now the word female homosexuals use to call themselves. The term is referent to Sappho, a female poet of Lesbos and the first prominent lesbian (of either meaning of the word) in the ancient world. The inhabitants of this island have fought fiercely against the theft of their name and respectability. However, due to the homosexual agenda, many countries have remained frustratingly inactive on this issue.
