August 29th is the day legislatively recognized as Lesbian Visibility Day, which shows the importance of being visible by this community included in the initialism LGBTQIA+. After all, are we visible in it? Are we visible in its culture? In the elaboration of public policies? Are we visible within our own lesbian community? To reflect on these and other issues, we invited to this discussion three lesbian women who have been working on a joint construction of this visibility through literature and historical rescue, collecting survey data on how many as well as who we are, and through social network, talking about self-care.
