Today sees the Lesbian Visibility Day, an opportunity to celebrate lesbian life, culture and its diversity.
Why is this day important? Stonewall has asked gay women why being out and proud is important to them:
Here, at the Leicester LGBT Centre we are committed to raising awareness and support for gay women. In addition to our services, we host Rubyfruit Women, a very successful social group for all lesbian, bisexual and questioning women (Click here for more information about the group).
This month we are also raising awareness about LBT women with an online campaign, highlighting some of the issues that this community is still facing (Keep an eye on Facebook and Twitter to follow the campaign).
