Need: Are lesbian free from contracting HIV/AIDs?

zzshowpic.jpg

hi,
i have this doubt worrying me and i thought it will be wise if i pose the question to the forum.
regarding the mitigating measure in reducing the spread of HIV/AIDs within and across the globe, i have hardly come across talks which look at homosexuality as a means of further spreading the pandemic. most especially the lesbians.
my question is; are lesbian susceptible in contracting HIV/AIDs via sexual intercourse?
if no, shall we say that lesbianism is another practice of limiting the spread.
thanks
will be most happy to receive your enlighten feedback

I recently worked as part of the team that help set up Kenya's gay and lesbian community centre.
While there i realised there is so little information out in the public domain about lesbians and their risk to contracting HIV/Aids.

I have an interest in conducting this research here in Kenya.

Thank you.
