What we're about
DMV Women Connect is a professional and social group that seeks to support and create community for lesbian and bisexual women in the DC/ Maryland/ Northern Virginia (DMV) area.
Our members include women who identify as lesbians as well as bi-sexual women. MTF members are welcome, however we respectfully will decline FTM requests for membership in order to retain the integrity of the womyn-identified orientation of the DMV. This group is intended to be a safe place to meet other women with similar interests to network and connect intellectually and socially without fear of judgment or of boundaries being crossed.
Our goal is to foster an appreciation of diversity within our community. Our membership ranges in age from women in their 20’s to women in their 60’s from diverse professions, religions, races, nationalities and socio-economic back-grounds.
Our group connects through events within the DMV, though events are not limited by geography. Activities include: Concerts, theatres, museums, house parties, biking/hiking/walking, movie nights, dining out, coffee, wine tasting, bar/club outings, bowling, game nights, festivals, dancing, and so much more!
DMV Women Connect is NOT intended to be a "dating" site. Some members have connected and found relationships through our gatherings and we are very happy for them! However, if your intention as a member is to pursue members for personal relationships beyond friendship, please respect individual/personal boundaries.
We agree to treat one another with respect, dignity and create a fun and safe non-threatening environment for all members.
Please keep your membership current. Suggest events. RSVP for events. Check-in often. Your participation is key to creating the sense of community we are trying to foster.
Please be kind and always update your RSVPs if plans change prior to the date of the event.
Thanks so much for your participation. Feedback and suggestions are always welcome!
