VISIBILITY, DIVERSITY, AND HOPE ARE WHAT DRIVE WHAT WE DO AT LEZBELIB.
We want each of our readers:
to feel good when visiting our website
to be respected
to feel free to be the one she is
to take part in a better future
And this diversity and hope start by building a media that brings visibility to LGBTQ+ women.
THE PATH TO A BETTER WORLD FOR LESBIAN, BISEXUAL, TRANSGENDER AND QUEER WOMENBEGINS WITH VISIBILITY AND EDUCATION.
Our experience in the LGBTQ media industry, first as readers and then launching our own online magazine Lezbelib, showed us that there is much more to be accomplished.
Over the last ten years, we have realized that:
there is still work to be done in education - hatred exists even within our community
the visibility for LGBTQ+ women has evolved a little, but women are not in the forefront in the LGBT media
sometimes activism = aggressiveness and not action
and we don’t need an umpteenth straight blogger writing LGBTQ articles on behalf of popular websites to increase their financial profits
What we need is an online platform where we can meet, share, read entertaining blogs, follow our news, support LGBTQ+ women, and all this shared by women like us.
We need hope, to know that things are being done for our rights, that we are advancing despite the difficulties.
The rest doesn’t matter. These are just websites that seek to make you react by their hatred and aggressiveness; or who bombard you with messages to get your money, and where you represent only one more marketing strategy.
What matters is to have a space on the web that looks like us, that makes us feel good, that respects us. And this is what we're working on with Lezbelib.
AT LEZBELIB, IT ALL STARTS WITH THE ACCEPTANCE AND CELEBRATION OF OUR LGBTQ+ DIVERSITY, WHETHER BASED ON SEXUAL ORIENTATION, GENDER IDENTITY OR LOCATION.
We may have different cultures, we may live in different countries, but we all love the same colors, we cherish our rainbow.
We share informationwith the same enthusiasm whether it is good news for lesbian, bisexual, queer or transgender women; or whether it is news for women living in a distant country or island.
We appreciate good news in the same way as you and sometimes, it happened, we are as much moved as you.
YOU VISIT A WEBSITE TO HAVE FUN!
You visit a site hoping to enjoy it, to get a small dose of hope, to follow LGBT stories. You are curious to discover something new, maybe a movie, a series, music, a book.
How to get this?
By visiting a media that embraces the LGBTQ+ diversity, taking part, sharing, and perhaps even contributing to it.
Lezbelib is this online platform that spread these values because these are our values.
Our team is composed only by LGBTQ+ women. We are interested to observe how LGBT rights advance around the world; we like to share with you the latest outings (movies, TV series, albums,...- we cover many subjects on it).
You and we can create together the online media we want and deserve.
