This panel discussion is presented by the Dalhousie Libraries, home of the Nova Scotia LGBT Seniors Archive, and Mount Saint Vincent University Library & Archives in recognition of Lesbian Visibility Day (LVD). LVD occurs annually on April 26 to celebrate, recognize, and bring visibility to lesbian-identified members of the LGBTQ+ community while honoring and elevating this unique community of people who are historically overlooked and dismissed by way of being both women and queer.
