What we're about
WHO WE ARE
- lesbian, bisexual, and queer-identified
- age 21 and up (and up and up and up)
- living in Connecticut
- gathering to meet new people, socialize, and network.
WHAT WE DO
Our members host all types of activities all around the state. We hike, kayak, paint, drink, eat, play cards and games, picnic, walk our dogs, talk, dish, commiserate, debate, sing, carve pumpkins, DANCE, dress up, dress down, dress in costume, see plays and movies, and sometimes even take trips.
HOW TO JOIN
Make sure your display name includes a first name and last initial (or more), completion of the profile questions, and a clear photo of your face to join. If you are declined, check your photo and make sure you meet membership criteria. You can ask for membership again after updating your photo or other issues.
You must be both woman-identified AND non-heterosexual to join this group. Trans people who fit those criteria are also welcome. While we do enjoy spending time with our male and heterosexual friends, this group is for a specific part of the community.
WHAT MAKES US DIFFERENT
All of our events are hosted by a club member. Members can expect to be greeted and introduced to other members at all of our events (except perhaps those that involve massive public crowds). Please keep your photo updated so hosts can identify you at events.
We are no longer requiring annual dues. We will host 2 annual fundraisers to pay the Meetup management fees for a group this size.
HOW DO EVENTS WORK?
Anyone can create an event, or act as host at a larger community event. You can create your own event for coffee at the Starbucks near you, or invite other people to join you for Karaoke Night at your local bar. We encourage all members to plan and host events. We have several very active event organizers, others who only organize one type of event. Sometimes events are specified for a particular subgroup (ex: Parents, Vegans) and that's okay, too.
Most events are adults-only. Nursing mothers may ask their host if bringing their infant is appropriate. Older babies, children, minors, and men are not welcome at our events unless specifically mentioned by the event host. [Occasionally personal friends are invited to someone's home-based event. Sometimes an activity is child-appropriate or for families. Sometimes a bi-friendly event might specify that it will allow men.]
Members are sometimes permitted to bring a guest or two to an event. Please be careful about which other lesbian/bi/queer women you bring to our events, as you are responsible for you guest’s behavior.
We take photos of members enjoying our events and post them to this private meetup site. Only other members can view the photos. If you do not want your photograph taken, please immediately and politely let the photographer know. We will not remove photos that members find disagreeable.
Please do not post meetup event photos or tag our members in posts on your personal social media accounts (like Facebook) without permission from every person in the photo/post, including anyone in the background. Some people are not out.
Thanks for checking us out!
