Lipstick Lesbian Flag

What Does Lipstick Lesbian Mean?

The term “lipstick lesbian” refers to a lesbian who demonstrates more typically feminine gender traits, like wearing make-up, dresses or skirts, and possessing other qualities typical of feminine women. 

In contrast to a butch lesbian, who promotes herself as more masculine through grooming and appearance, it refers to a lesbian who displays herself as feminine. Two lesbians can be there with one of them portraying greater femininity (a lipstick lesbian) and the other displaying a more masculine self.

It has stripes, just like the rainbow pride flag, and it has different shades of pink and purple which are used to represent feminine characteristics. It often has a lipstick stain in the top left corner.

This flag comes in a variety of patterns, but it often has a black upside-down triangle that was formerly a Nazi emblem that lesbians were compelled to wear.
