Who We Are
When it comes to gay rights, Switzerland is ranked 26th among 49 European countries, at the same level as Rumania. Although lesbians are generally well accepted in Swiss society, they hardly enjoy the same rights as heterosexual men and women. For example, there are no laws providing marriage equality or protection from hate speech directed at LGBTI people.
This book delves into the stories of Swiss lesbians, in particular, the stories of two moms living with their daughter in Winterthur, a Catholic priest who blessed a lesbian couple in his church, the outrage that followed the ceremony, and a woman who was attacked because she dates women.
