I'm sure you probably already know this but the usual sign for "Lesbian" ("L" sign on the chin) is considered offensive by some Deaf Lesbians because it also means something sexual. A variation that a few friends of mine showed me is to make an "L" on the cheek. This variation is not very popular yet but I was hoping maybe if you post it on your site, people will start using it instead and the old sign will become a thing of the past like the offensive signs for Chinese and Japanese.
