How to say lesbian in Welsh
Below are the words of our Welsh Lesbian Dictionary that we will expand in new editions. If you know any more, please, contact us. But first some information about the language and where it is spoken.
Welsh is a language belonging to the family of Celtic languages of the Indo-European family. It is spoken in Wales, in the United Kingdom, by about 800,000 people being official language along with English.
In Wales, together with England, homosexual behavior between men was legalized in 1967 (among women it was never penalized, although for no positive reasons), while in Scotland and Northern Ireland it was later legalized. This differentiated legislation also occurs in issues such as equal marriage that is legal throughout the United Kingdom except in Northern Ireland, or homoparental adoption in Wales and England was approved in 2005 and subsequently in the rest of the country. This legislative variability increases in territories dependent on the crown and the colonies.
We want to thank Stuart Konrad Anthony for his special contribution to the realization and improvement of this dictionary.
