Lesbian Visibility Day 2022 - LGBTIQ+ Health Australia

Lesbian Visibility Day 2022

Lesbian Visibility Day is a day to raise awareness of the issues faced by LBTQ women, in workplaces, in culture and in health and wellbeing.

Many of us think of visibility as representation in the media and popular culture. Being seen – often quite literally – can foster identity affirmation and a sense of self-worth . This isn’t just the case for media representation but is equally important in the areas of health (physical and mental) and community services. It’s crucial that lesbians are represented in these areas and experience ‘affirmative visibility’ in order to feel comfortable and safe accessing care, support and resources.

Take a look at our resources from last year highlighting the health and wellbeing challenges faced by lesbians and other queer women, and what we can do to tackle them.
