Lesbian Visibility Day 2021

This #LesbianVisibilityDay, we celebrate Astraea’s lesbian roots and honor the radical vision of our founding mothers who came together in 1977 to raise funds for and build the power of queer women and People of Color in a time when almost no one else was doing so. As part of our commitment to fueling the frontlines of lesbian-led organizing, our report in collaboration with MamaCash titled ‘Vibrant Yet Under-Resourced: The State of Lesbian, Bisexual, and Queer Movements’ has demonstrated that LBQ activism is growing all over the world. These vibrant groups are determinedly doing their work with intense commitment and very little money, often in quite harsh and repressive circumstances. In their organizing across diverse movements, they are improving the lives of LBQ people while advancing multiple social justice causes.
