Over a period of a few months, the BBC spoke to dozens of young lesbians in a country where homosexuality is illegal. They told us about their day-to-day lives and how they use secret memes to connect with each other on social media platforms and chat apps. We have substituted those images with that of a violet for the purpose of this report. The women are in high spirits, chatting animatedly, playfully sketching patterns on each other using body paint, and sharing a picnic.

My Stepmother Wants Lesbian Sex With Me
D o lesbian mums make the best parents? According to research released earlier this year, children raised by two mothers do better academically, have higher self-esteem and are less likely to have behavioural problems than peers who have been brought up in a family with two heterosexual parents. The year study, published by the American journal Pediatrics , followed 78 couples who conceived using donor sperm. The mothers were interviewed during pregnancy and the children were tested and interviewed at ages 2, 5, 10 and 17, along with their parents. The study found that children raised by lesbian mothers scored similarly to children raised by heterosexual parents on measures of development and social behaviour.
Laura-Rose Thorogood would not have been able to marry her wife of eight years were it not for groundbreaking campaigning by LGBT activists. She says she would not have had her two young children and if she had they would not be able to talk about their mums when they went to school. Her daughter Dottie, 5, has just started school and little brother Stanley George, one, will be following in her footsteps soon. During its 30 years of campaigning, Stonewall has been instrumental in helping to achieve the equalisation of the age of consent, lifting the ban on lesbian, gay and bi-sexual people serving in the military, and securing legislation which allowed same-sex couples to adopt. Dottie has not faced any questions for having two mothers, Laura-Rose said, and the couple have always been open about where she came from and why her family is different to some other children.
