As the leading LBTQ media group in Europe, DIVA Media Group reaches an audience of 250,000 users every month. In our engagement we are increasingly finding LGBTQI women feel that they are misunderstood and under supported.
One of the aims of Lesbian Visibility Week is to show our solidarity with every woman within the LGBTQI community, as well as celebrate lesbians. It is essential that Lesbian Visibility Week is a voice for unity and lifts up ALL women, especially those who come from marginalised 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.
There has been a Lesbian Visibility Day since 2008.
Building on this, we want to create a week that recognises, celebrates and importantly supports lesbian, bisexual, transgender and queer women across the UK and beyond to be their true selves at work, at home and socially.
