Lesbian and queer women are less likely to be out in the workplace than male counterparts, with many seeing this as being career limiting. Research indicates that LGBTIQ+ women can often feel stereotyped and stigmatised for their intersection of being both a woman and identifying as LGBTIQ+. Lesbian Day of Visibility is a chance to emphasise the positive impact that visibility and acceptance has on the wellbeing of lesbian and queer women.
