Confidence Movement for Lesbian and Bisexual Women

Confidence Movement for Lesbian and Bisexual Women

Everyone deserves to feel confident and comfortable in themselves, yet lesbian and bisexual women often still have negative experiences because of our gender identity, sexual orientation and other minority identities. This leads to higher rates of mental health problems and barriers to getting help, including around “coming out”.

We will amplify our voices, our experiences and our struggles.

We will celebrate the ways in which we find confidence in ourselves and our communities.

We will reclaim our identities and stories, recognising the differences between them.

This Autumn, LGBT Foundation Women’s Programme is launching a Confidence Movement for Lesbian and Bisexual Women

We have three exciting ways for you to get involved:

1.Confidence Conference for Lesbian and Bisexual Women - 21st October 11am-5pm

Meet new people in new ways by coming along to our community fair and workshops and feel inspired by our hilarious speaker to be “unapologetically you”.

2.Vlog Series: Coming out: when and where we want

Share your story or just listen to ours – lesbian, bisexual, queer and questioning women talk about their experiences of coming-out (or not!) when and where they want. Find these vlogs on our Youtube channel here:

3.Radio Takeovers

Tune in to hear us taking over local stations to focus on the experiences of being a minority lesbian or bisexual woman in the LGBT community and how that impacts on accessing health and social care settings. Find us on: (list of stations and date/time of takeover)

Follow #LBconfidence across social media for the latest updates.
