Lesbian Visibility Day Date in the current year: April 26, 2018

Lesbian Visibility Day Lesbian Visibility Day is an annual awareness campaign held on April 26. Its origins are unknown but the campaign is believed to have been launched in 2008 and has since spread across the world thanks to the Internet.

Pride and visibility days dedicated to different groups that make up the LGBT community (lesbians, gay men, bisexual people, transgender and gender-nonconforming people, intersex people etc.) are extremely important because it is important to raise awareness of the specific struggles and needs of each of these groups.

Lesbian Visibility Day celebrates lesbian role models and lesbian culture and diversity, as well as raises awareness of the issues that lesbians have to face. In terms of medical issues, for example, many women who have sex with women neglect to see a gynecologist when they become sexually active and lack information about the prevention of STDs that can be transmitted during lesbian sex.

As far as mental health issues are concerned, anxiety is more likely to appear among lesbian and bisexual women than heterosexual women. Depression is a significant problem among lesbians who have to hide their sexual orientation, experience religious or ethnic discrimination, or go through relationship problems with no support system. Not to mention that corrective rapes and other hate crimes against lesbian women are still common in some parts of the world.
