In brief: Without a doubt
Being a lesbian has nothing to do with the sex of a child.
Despite your sexual preference making a child still requires an egg (from a woman) and a sperm (from a man). The egg carries the sex chromosomes that make her female, xx; while the sperm carries those that make him a male, xy. A female donates an x and a male donates an x or y, actually determining the sex the baby will be.

In brief: Depends
Women of any sexual orientation of child-bearing age may experience pregnancy and have biologic children.
Sexual orientation does not direct the biologic ability to conceive.
