(1942 – )

Lee Klingstein Gold is a fan and filker living in Los Angeles who found fandom around 1967. She is a member of LAFA (and helps handle its mailings), and a writer and publisher of filk songs. She published Xenofilkia, a bi-monthly compilation of filk songs, published since 1988, four issues of Filker Up, an anthology; and, since 1975, a monthly gaming zine, Alarums and Excursions.

She is a member of LASFS and served as secretary. She was a founding member of The Third Foundation and is a member of The Cult and APA-L.

Lee says "I found organized SF fandom in 1967 at Westercon XX", including filking, then "A month later I attended my first LASFS meeting with copies for sale of [The Third Foundation]] #77 (the fanzine's first issue), containing my first filksong: Oh, What a Beautiful Martian. One of the LASFSians who sang it that night was a fellow named Barry Gold, whom I married two years later."

With her husband, Barry Gold, she has edited several of the official convention songbooks for ConChord, and co-edited the songbook for ConFrancisco. Books included Con Chords and Choruses.
