It’s Lesbian Visibility Week & I’m happy to say that I’m a proud lesbian.— Bobbi Pickard (@BobbityP) April 25, 2023
I’m also a trans woman – I know a few people feel they have the right to police people’s lives & identities won’t like that.
I suggest those people mind their own business or find a way to deal with it. pic.twitter.com/eQ8u35DOJ0
Happy #LesbianVisibilityWeek to all my lesbian siblings!— Thomas Willett (@ThomasWillett9) April 24, 2023
This week, let’s take time to celebrate lesbians & show our support to all LGBTQ+ women & non binary people who make our community vibrant & beautiful, especially now when women’s & body autonomy rights are at risk. pic.twitter.com/QuQzgrQ4XV
It’s #LesbianVisibilityWeek so here I am! We are no longer in the shadows thanks to all the brave campaigners past and present who stepped forward to fight for us. And. While I’m here. Trans women can be lesbians too. It shouldn’t need to be said every day but it seems it does. pic.twitter.com/Gce2SDOlDK— Jan Gooding (@Jan_Gooding) April 24, 2023
