What Does LESBO Mean?

LESBO means "Lesbian."

The word lesbo is widely used, both online and in offline, as a derogatory term for a lesbian.

In LGBT circles, some lesbians have reclaimed the term lesbo, and now self-identify as lesbos.

Lesbo is similar in use and meaning to dyke, but has not yet been reclaimed to the same degree.

On social media platforms, such as TikTok, lesbo is often referred to as the l-slur.
