#LesbianVisibilityDay is celebrated every April 26th and this year is the 12 edition of this LGBTQI awareness day. It is celebrated as a day to build a platform for lesbian role models and representation of lesbian women in many fields.
All of us here at Compete Sports Diversity honor our lesbian friends and athletes. We’ve covered quite a few stories about lesbian athletes this past year and a lot has been happening in sports. Check out some of the biggest stories we’ve covered…
