This is a statement by Lesbians and our supporters that we are NOT part of the 'LGBT " umbrella. Our interests both as lesbians in particular and women in general are not represented by any alphabet organization. We have had enough of our voices silenced and our protests ignored.
The 'LGBT community " is actively harming women with its insistence of focusing on transgender issues. We, the L, are going our own way to focus on our own community. We are building L- only spaces, women- only spaces, campaign for women's rights and L rights. L only.
We demand that the L be left out of the current LGBT acronym. We'll take care of our own business, as always, and will form temporary alliances as we see fit, when the goal is parity for Lesbians.
The L will speak for ourselves.
