This past week marked the 13th year of Lesbian Visibility Week celebrated between April 25th and May 2nd.
The origin of International Lesbian Visibility Day is unclear. Since 2008, however, the LGBTQIA+ community has been recognizing Lesbian Visibility Day each year on April 26.
Lesbian Visibility Week aims to show solidarity with all LGBTQI woman and non binary people in the community, as well as celebrate lesbians. Lesbian Visibility Week strives to be a voice for unity and lifts up ALL women, especially those who come from marginalized communities.
Recent research (Pride Matters survey, conducted by Pride In London 2018) has shown that gay women are almost twice as unlikely to be out in the workplace as gay male colleagues.
