Where are the lesbian goddesses?

When we delve into the myths and stories of the different cultures, lesbianism does not seem to have almost any kind of prominence. There are goddesses who can have some relationship with beings of the same sex, but this is usually somewhat anecdotical in their stories and more than lesbians they would be considered bisexual or pansexual since they usually also have relationships with men. If we know that homosexual relationships in both sexes are as old as humanity, where are the lesbian goddesses?

The other Goddess

When we talk about Dianic Wicca, we talk about a Wicca focused on the Goddess and that in some cases she relegates the God in the background very small or directly eliminates it from the cult. For a time, especially in the late 1990s and early 2000s, Dianic Wicca was synonymous with lesbian Wicca. It is not surprising that many lesbian wiccans adopted this tradition because it was closer to their life experience, but not all dianismo is lesbian.
