Given that we live in a patriarchal world, the voices of lesbians have for so long been hidden. Queer Ethiopia is all about centering the experience of the LBQ community. Lesbian Visibility Week is yet another opportunity to center our experiences. As lesbians, we sit at the table of our own accord. Visibility is showing up for ourselves everyday, in ways that fits us. No one gets to police how we do our sexuality: Being out to others, being out to ourselves, not being out at all, questioning, taking one step forward and three steps backwards. Be you. In whatever ways that makes sense to you.
We are centered. Happy Lesbian Visibility Week.
