<p>Includes bibliographical references. --- Review, Network Winter 2001: Lesbian and bisexual women reveal the importance of community in their lives and its relationship to their health. The community serves multiple functions, providing emotional and tangible resources for women and a sense of belonging in an isolating, heterosexist society. At the same time, sexual health can suffer when a community imposes expected rules for behavior. Finding a place in community carries implications for health in its broadest sense.</p>
