Being a gay woman isn’t always easy. For too long, saucy Sapphos had to hide their sexuality from their families, friends, and communities. This had a lot to do with social and religious taboos surrounding same-sex partnerships. But attitudes are improving. It’s estimated that 4 to 10 percent of the global adult population is homosexual or queer. Even if just half of these people are female, then there are between 100 and 400 million lesbians worldwide.
Same-sex marriage is on the increase. Currently, 26 countries around the globe support couples who want to enter the sanctity of marriage and pledge their commitment to one another. This number is increasing every year with additional nations passing laws allowing these unions. Sapphic relationships are becoming more acceptable in many cultures.
Sapphism, meaning lesbianism, is a term arising from the Greek poet Sappho whose intimate poetry declared her desire for girls and praised the allure of all women. Where was she born in 6th century BC? Where else than the famous Greek island of Lesbos.
Traditionally, people have an idea in their minds of how a lesbian looks. Tomboyish, butch, muscular, short hair, wearing dungarees or manly outfits. But the reality is far from this. A single stereotype is impossible. Asian, European, African, Hispanic. Black, white, petite, statuesque. Blonde, red-headed, brunette, auburn. Feminine or masculine, timid or bold...one thing’s for sure, a modern lesbian is comfortable with her appearance and sexuality. She’s as beautiful on the outside as within.
In the 1970s, the lavender rhinoceros symbol was associated with the lesbian movement. Throughout time, lavender has been a color evoking mysticism and power. The rhino is a non-aggressive, passive animal. Until someone threatens it: pushed too far or angered. The same can be true of gay lasses. Treat them right and these chicks will show you all the respect, care, and devotion anyone wants. Mysterious, relaxed, loving and gentle—until provoked. Then you get a vision of the exciting side. The fiery, strong-willed part of their personality appears to defend all they are passionate about.
One problem faced by lesbian lovelies can be finding a true soulmate. Someone to share their life with. living in a large cosmopolitan city, there are bars, clubs and even districts where the queer community flock to. Outside of these areas, meeting potential partners is rather limited. Nowadays, many lesbians turn to the internet to find true love.
