|Three homphobes from Lesbos, home of the ancient poet Sappho who praised love between women, have taken a human rights group to court for using the word lesbian in its name. One of the plaintiffs said Wednesday that the name of the association, Homosexual and Lesbian Community of Greece, ''insults the identity'' of the people of Lesbos, who are also known as Lesbians. Most people from Lesbos prefer to identify as Mytilene.|
