Feminine Moments' newsletter - Lesbian Imagery +  Visibility

Edited by Birthe Havmoeller

Dear Reader,

April 26, 2021 was "Lesbian Visibility Day". DIVA Magazine and other organisers around the world have made this week Lesbian Visibility Week. In this issue #103 of my newsletter, I am happy to share some videos about JEB's old photography book Eye to Eye: Portraits of Lesbians (1979) which has been reprinted in March 2021 by Anthology Editions.

Censorship is the trend at the moment. I send my thanks to Jannica Honey for sharing her story about censorship of the female body on Instagram (see her essay below) with us. I know that many lesbian and queer women artists who are making images of the body are being censored on social media. I hope this will change soon and pray to the Divine Feminine, we need a more open-minded world now!
