Lesbian

The term lesbian is used to identify or describe sexual or romantic behaviour and attraction that involves attraction to the same sex by women. Recognizing that you may be lesbian can occur over time… It is possible to realize at different points in your life that you are not exclusively attracted to the opposite sex. In terms of gender identity, being lesbian does not typically define how one identifies their own gender. Regardless of whether they identify with their birth sex, or don’t, women can engage in lesbian relationships. In the same way that sexual orientation can vary greatly, even within one person’s own preferences, so can gender identity, and the way in which, or level to which someone identifies with a certain gender can change over time. If you, or a friend or loved one have chosen a lesbian lifestyle, but would like more information or help with gender identity within that lifestyle, there are many sources of support and information. If you feel you, or a loved one needs help answer questions or face challenges presented by lesbianism and gender identity, we are here to provide you with the resources you need. You are not alone. Connect with others who may be going through the same thing, find professional help and resources near you. The Kinjunxion community is here to help.
