Hi and thanks for checking us out! This is a CT group to facilitate lesbian, bisexual, transgendered, and queer-identified women, age 21 and up (and up and up), meeting, socializing, and networking. WE ARE NOT A DATING SITE! The group originated with monthly events at night (hence, the use of the word "soiree"), but now includes all types of activities all over the state. We hike, kayak, paint, drink, eat, play cards and games, walk our dogs, talk, sing, carve pumpkins, DANCE, dress up, down, and in costume, see plays and movies, and sometimes even take trips. We are here to make friends. Occasionally deeper connections are made.
We have several very active event organizers, and we encourage all our members to plan and host events. We have events almost every weekend, and sometimes on weekdays. Sometimes events are specified for a particular subgroup, and that's okay, too.
We welcome all adult women in the aforementioned categories, single or coupled, young or not so young, and though it should go without saying, of any political or religious persuasion, race, ethnicity, or class. We welcome anybody who IDs and presents as female full time. We do not check "packages" and what medications members are on is nobody's business. This goes for guests, too. [And just to be clear, men (straight, gay, or bi), no offense, we love you, but this is a women-only group.]
The vast majority of our events are adults-only. Nursing mothers may bring their infant, if appropriate, with permission from the hostess. Older babies, children, minors, and men are not welcome at our events unless otherwise specified by the event hostess (occasionally personal friends are invited to someone's home, sometimes an activity is child-appropriate, and sometimes a bi-friendly event might be shared).
Please note that you must include a first name and last initial, completion of the profile questions, and a clear photo of your face. I must be able to see your face clearly in order for you to be admitted. Anything else will not be accepted. You are required to keep a current photo of yourself on your profile so that organizers and other members can identify you at a meetup event.
This meetup requires $5 yearly membership dues per person. Couples should join as separate individuals. You can pay online (the Pay Dues button is on the left-hand side of the home page) or by mail; the name and address will be sent to you when you join. We offer a 30-day free trial membership, so go ahead and join! You've got nothing to lose.
We take photos of our members enjoying our events and post them to this meetup site. Our site is private; only other members can view the photos. If at any time you do not want your photograph taken, please let the photographer know. We don't have the time to remove photos that members find disagreeable.
We ask that you please do not post meetup event photos to your personal social media accounts like Facebook without permission from everyone in the photo, including people in the background.
Members may be ejected from the group at the discretion of the Organizer.
