 workshop with lgbt+ foundation coming out  workshop with the LGBT foundation on Coming out, At this workshop we explored personal journeys and expression with collage,drawing and mark making to sound. lesbian visibility is an important factor when coming out. knowing that there are other lesbians gives them a confidence to explore their sexuality join clubs and do activity to meet other lesbians. whats came out of this session is still how isolated some women feel especially as they get older. The visibility of older lesbians and places to meet older lesbians. Cultured things to do.. the session were personal so I can't show the outcomes of this workshop. During the sessions a lot of the women talked about self homophobia and how this makes you feel. more positive lesbian visibly I think would help with this.
