Lesbian singer, songwriter, and activist, Alix Cecil Dobkin was born in New York City in 1940. Introduced at a young age to folk music and Broadway musicals, she graduated in 1958 from Germantown High School in Philadelphia and in 1962 from Tyler School of Fine Arts, Temple University. She began her career singing folk music in coffee houses, especially the Gaslight Cafe in Greenwich Village where her future husband was the manager. In 1972 Dobkin fell in love with Liza Cowan and the couple came out together. In 1973, Dobkin released Lavender Jane Loves Women, the first album specifically made by and for lesbians. Since then she has released six other albums of women's music and has performed widely in the United States and abroad. For many years Dobkin was an advocate of women-only space, and performed only for women. She appeared regularly at the Michigan Womyn's Music Festival from the 1970s to the 1990s, as well as at other women's music and lesbian festivals.
