According to Classical Greek mythology, Lesbos was the patron god of the island.

One meaning of the word lesbian derives from the poems of Sappho, who was born in Lesbos and who wrote containing powerful emotional content directed toward other women. It is due to this association that Lesbos and especially the town of Eresos, her birthplace, are visited frequently by lesbian tourists.
