Elsa Gidlow was a poet, who in 1923 published the first volume of openly lesbian love poetry in the United States: On A Grey Thread. She was also active in promoting alternative spirituality in the United States, including Buddhism and Goddess-worship. She was born in England, but moved to Montreal at a young age. She moved to New York in 1917 at the age of 19. Later, in 1927, she moved to San Francisco, and continued to live in the San Francisco Bay Area for the rest of her life. In the 1940s she founded a rural retreat in Marin County, which continues under the name of The Druid Heights Artists Retreat. She lived there until her death in the mid-80s. Other residents have included well-known figures such as Alan Watts and Catherine MacKinnon. ‘ — Wikipedia.
