November 4, 1933 – November 10, 2011

Born in Ohio, pioneering publisher Barbara Glycine Grier spent much of her childhood in Detroit and attended ninth grade at Highland Park Community High School.  She came to understand herself as lesbian as a teenager after requesting books on homosexuality at the Detroit Public Library.  Grier went on to edit the magazine The Ladder and to co-found the Naiad Press with her partner Donna McBride.
