Lesbian books and novels are written to empower and encourage all those women that may go through depression, or may have self-esteem issues. These issues are the result of the societies attitude towards their orientation. So, here are 1o books about lesbians you should read and feel empowered?
LGBT groups still remain kind of a taboo in many countries. Moreover, this topic has split the global society into two parts: pro and against. The debate on their integration as full members of society still goes on and seems endless. But in many places, these people live in peace and harmony.
