For Lesbian Visibility Week 2024 we will be celebrating the power of sisterhood by uplifting incredible LGBTQIA women and non-binary people from every generation, in every field and in every country around the world. One community, so many brilliant individuals.
This year DIVA is working in partnership with EL*C (Euro Central Asian Lesbian Committee), ILGA World, GLAAD, Curve and LGBT Foundation to make Lesbian Visibility Week a truly international stage where iconic LGBTQIA women and non-binary people can all take a moment in the spotlight to be recognised for the work they do and the joy they bring.
WHAT PEOPLE SAY
I FEEL THAT ALL THE NETWORKING EVENTS AND SPACES ARE DESIGNED FOR AND FOCUSED ON GAY MEN. IT MAKES ME UNCOMFORTABLE TO ATTEND AND I FEEL THAT IMPACTS ON MY CAREER AND PROGRESSION.
I AM A LESBIAN, BUT DON’T FEEL THAT I CAN BE OPEN ABOUT MY SEXUALITY AT WORK. I HOPE THAT A WEEK THAT RAISES AWARENESS WILL HELP ME FIND THE STRENGTH TO DO THAT.
SEEING SO MANY INSPIRATIONAL WOMEN SHARE THEIR STORIES DURING LVW REALLY HELPED ME FEEL MORE VALID AND GAVE ME THE STRENGTH TO SPEAK MORE OPENLY ABOUT BISEXUALITY.
