Here are 100 Lesbian Blog Posts on International Lesbian Day

Lesbians get two awareness days – Lesbian Visibility Day on April 26 and International Lesbian Day on October 8. Obviously today is October 8. I don’t have many great lesbian thoughts to create an essay to pay tribute to lesbians. Instead, I compiled a list of 100 blog posts written since 2005 about lesbians. Interviews, events, the Dyke March, theater, and, of course, politics.

International Lesbian Day

Why Pittsburgh Lesbian Voices on Lesbian Day?

Thus, we celebrate by reading the stories of Pittsburgh lesbians over the past 18 years to celebrate and honor their contributions, large and small. These are not all of the posts, but they provide a wide range of lesbian experiences. After all, lesbian day stems best from lesbian voices.

In any case and no particular order.

Equally important, lesbian visibility must remain a priority and use our privilege to speak out for other LGBTQ women, including bisexual women, trans women, gay women, and queer women. For example, you might read my post Not Enough Lesbian Content (h/t Hannah Gadsby) to see some of the ways in which lesbian are erased, including anti-trans activists.

Thus, we should celebrate and refuse to cease demanding our rightful place in the world. Indeed, lesbian visibility should be every day. After all, every day is lesbian day.
