On April 26th of each year we celebrate Lesbian Visibility Day, which seeks, as its name indicates, to make visible this acronym of our LGBT+ community in Mexico and around the world.
We are very pleased to use this space to talk about this day and the importance of forming an integral community that respects each of its acronyms and joins its movements, because we are in the same struggle to reform the conception of the LGBT+ community and little by little have a space where consensual love can be professed in all its expressions, without discrimination and in equal circumstances.
As the LGBT hotel in Puerto Vallarta with the longest tradition in the Zona Romantica it is a pleasure for us to commemorate this day and talk a little about the history of the lesbian movement, the origin of the Lesbian Awareness Day and suggest the best place to celebrate it in Puerto Vallarta.
Origins of the Lesbian Awareness Day
Initiated in Spain in 2008, the Lesbian Visibility Day was promoted by Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) collectives, in view of the need to give a space to each acronym to fight against their particular discriminations.
In the case of lesbians, they suffer a double discrimination. In a still very patriarchal world, women suffer discrimination for the mere fact of being women; they do not receive the same job opportunities or salaries and suffer constant gender violence, if you add to this being a lesbian in a sexist and heteronormative world, imagine the accumulation of discrimination.
