Lesbian Visibility Day 2020

Published on Apr 26, 2020

Supporting and resourcing LBQ organizing is critical to the lives and well-being of LBQ people everywhere. Join us as we celebrate Lesbian Visibility Day 2020!

Today, Astraea celebrates the vibrant, growing LBQ movement and their radical visions of collective care and liberation.

LBQ activists and communities are:

  • working intersectionally
  • collaborating across movements
  • centering collective care, healing justice and sustainability

Yet LBQ groups face a critical lack of resourcing to continue this crucial work:

  • Only 3.5% of LGBTI funding is LBQ-specific.
  • 48% of LBQ groups receive less than USD $5k in external funding.
  • 34% of LBQ group receive NO external funding.

In 2019, Astraea gave over USD $1M to grassroots, LBQ-led organizing. 

85% of our international grants specifically fund LBQ and trans-led communities.

Join us as we continue supporting LBQ movements to create a future that is inclusive, respectful, and safe for us all.
