Spain: The cost of lesbian visibility

by Violeta Molina Gallardo, Efeminista| Madrid – April 26, 2021
Women who openly experience their homosexuality have to “pay a price” for their lesbian visibility : they are still penalized , discriminated against and have to fight twice as much to prove that they are “valid and normal.”

As explained by the historical activist Rosa Arauzo and the “influencer” Verónica Sánchez (@ oh.mamiblue), who, on the occasion of World Lesbian Visibility Day , speak with Efe about the importance of having references for the lesbian community , even when They recognize that there is still a high cost to pay for being on the front line.
(Translated)

as mujeres que viven abiertamente su homosexualidad han de “pagar un precio” por su visibilidad lésbica: aún son penalizadas, discriminadas y tienen que pelear el doble por demostrar que son “válidas y normales”.

Según explican la histórica activista Rosa Arauzo y la “influencer” Verónica Sánchez (@oh.mamiblue), que, con motivo del Día Mundial de la Visibilidad Lésbica, hablan con Efe de la importancia de que existan referentes para el colectivo lésbico, aun cuando reconocen que todavía hay que pagar un coste elevado por estar en primera línea.
