Lesbian Visibility Day 2021
For a second consecutive year, due to the health measures imposed by the pandemic, the Quebec Lesbian Network (QLN) is presenting Lesbian Visibility Day (JVL) in the form of an online event that will offer exceptional programming, on two days! More than ever, it is essential to give visibility to LGBTQ + women and to offer them diverse activities to break the isolation and celebrate their diversity.
This year, Lesbian Visibility Day will take place on June 5 and 6. Note that a major spokesperson proudly joins the JVL, the top model Ève Salvail. Face of Jean-Paul Gaultier, she will be the first Quebec model to make her mark on the international scene. Over the decades, Ève has not hesitated to get involved with various causes close to her heart and the JVL is no exception! You will have the opportunity to discover the one who inspired the greatest, through a meeting, hosted for the occasion by Eugénie Lépine-Blondeau.
This year, the Visibility Award goes to comedian Katherine Levac and the Tribute Award to animation filmmaker and cartoonist Diane Obomsawin (alias Obom). To salute the incredible involvement of our two recipients, their careers will be honored through two virtual events, a humorous interview with Eugénie Lépine-Blondeau by Katherine Levac and the presentation of the acclaimed short film J’aime les filles (2016) by Diane Obomsawin, which will also be introduced by Katherine Levac.
