Lesbian women face unique mental health issues — in addition to the ones all members of the LGBT community face — because they exist in a marginalized section of an already marginalized community.

This pressure comes from heterosexuals, gay men — often in the context of meeting lesbians at gay bars — the media and other lesbian women.
