Lesbian Visibility Week: 15 unique gifts for the lesbian in your life including pins, t-shirts and jewellery
This week (25 April – 1 May) marks Lesbian Visibility Week.
It was created by DIVA publisher Linda Riley “both to celebrate lesbians and show solidarity with all LGBT+ women and non-binary people in our community”.
If you put the ‘L’ in LGBT+, or know someone who does, then the good news is that you can get some amazing gifts for that special someone in your life – and you can be your own special someone, after all.
There are a couple of different lesbian flags, but the most popular features six stripes, mostly in orange and pink with one white stripe in the middle.
This flag is featured on a wide range of items from unique t-shirts to cute pins and vibrant phone cases right through to statement jewellery, some of which is designed by independent, LGBT+ creatives.
Below we’ve put together a list of some of the amazing items you can get to celebrate during Lesbian Visibility Week, and all-year round.
