Rejoice, and celebrate International Lesbian Day today!

Today, October 8th is International Lesbian Day, an opportunity to highlight the achievements of queer women, and the challenges this section of our community still face.

There’s no clear record of when International Lesbian Day was established, but there is evidence of it occurring as early as 1980 and it originated in Australia and New Zealand.

So today’s the day to take your favourite lesbians and bisexuals out to lunch or after work drinks, watch lesbian films and play music made by lesbian women, and celebrate lesbian culture.

Happy International Lesbian Day everyone!
