From flying the flag above City Hall to rainbow dungarees…

Lesbian Visibility Day gives us a chance to recognise and celebrate lesbian identity and culture, while showing solidarity with bisexual and queer women and non-binary people across the world.
This day urges us to acknowledge the stereotypes, judgement, and lack of representation of our community and to make sure we are visible in the world.
