Invisible Lesbian Filter: how do I get my sisters to see me without looking like a walking Pride parade?

To be brief: I do not fit into any visual Lesbian stereotype (and sorry if this offends, but there ARE stereotypical cues that some dykes adopt, deal with it), and feel like I'm invisible to other Lesbians.
Of course, the only Lesbians *I* notice are the ones that are *obvious* to me, so I know I'm missing a bunch of like-minded women out there, too.
I live in an area that is very accepting, and Gays & Lesbians are assimilated into everything social & cultural -- there are no community centers, bars, etc. where I can go hang and be visible.
I'm here, I'm queer, I'm invisible -- and I'm not the only one! Help us find the secret handshake!
