'A group on the Greek island of Lesbos is mounting a legal challenge to the right of gay women to call themselves lesbians - since they're not from Lesbos and ancient poetess Sappho (from Lesbos) probably wasn't gay. Demitris Lambrou explains - Who cares

Reference Number: DCDL-0006542

Shows a very rough-looking man called Demitris Lambrou from the island of Lesbos who is one of a group which is making a legal challenge against the right of gay women to call themselves lesbians since they are not from Lesbos and Sappho probably was not gay. Demitrou goes on to explain in colourful language why they have decided to take up the challenge. Demitrou has one tattoo on his right arm saying 'Feel my hubris' and one on his left arm saying 'Sappho's a slappa!' In the background in a small house and a couple of playful goats.
