At Outsports, we believe every day should be Lesbian Visibility Day.
Being proud, being strong, being vibrant should not be limited to just one calendar day. So, all this week, starting today through Sunday, May 2, we will be celebrating the many women in sports around the world who love women, who have come out and live their truth, who are leading the way for the entire LGBTQ community. Welcome to Lesbian Visibility Week!
And every kind of lesbian deserves recognition. When we say women in sports who love women, that means all women.

Vill ze oft bléiwe lesbesch Fraen aus Angscht viru Virurteeler an Diskriminéierung och haut nach am Hannergrond.
Mir wëllen hinnen um haitegen Dag Mutt maachen an d'Villfältegkeet vun der Léift zelebréieren. pic.twitter.com/FMtjKEsAVz
Be aware: which flag you fly sends a message; some stand for inclusion, while others represent exclusion.
