How did Lesbian Visibility Week first start off? 

Lesbian Visibility Week was first celebrated in mid-July in 1990, and was conceived out of lesbians' frustrations with the higher visibility of LGBT men than LBGT women. The organisers intended to gain more awareness from this week. 

The week was coordinated by West Hollywood Lesbian Visibility Committee and the Los Angeles Gay and Lesbian Center and devoted to raising awareness of lesbian identities and topics and celebrating the lesbian community. 

In recent years, Lesbian Visibility Week shifted to start from 26 April, with Lesbian Visibility Day kicking off the start of the week (26 April). Since its inception, Lesbian Visibility Week has grown in popularity, with more and more countries and cities around the world celebrating the day.
