What we're about

Welcome to East End Lesbians, Bi and Queer Women

The group is open to all women of any age who identify as lesbian, bisexual or queer. Refugees and asylum seekers welcome! No haters of any variety, ta!

Our Meetups are planned and run by members, so are as varied as our members’ interests and imagination. No one is paid to do this - we do it for love!

Since the London Lockdown to prevent the spread of Coronavirus we have adapted events to run online and will also run some outdoor exercise meetups observing strict social distancing (1-2 m apart).

If you come to a few meetups and like the cut of our jib, then you too can start running stuff. The more the merrier! Just let an event organiser know and we will help you get started! But you can just be a ‘joiner-in’ too - because nothing would run without you!

NEW events coming soon:

Gardening Buddies Online,

Walks, Walks, Walks at Least 1-2m Apart!,

Virtual Tea break Every Friday afternoon,

Virtual LSO Concerts,

Love to craft? Love to chat?

Cycling, cycling, cycling,

Claudia’s weekly check in

The newly VIRTUAL Regulars

Virtual First Timers Brunches

These are immensely popular with women new to the group, the feedback has been fantastic. Come to up to 3, make some buddies and find your feet. We run at least one of these a month. It’s a great way into the group. We take it in turns to host these so you get a chance to meet some of the organisers before you dive into our meetups!

Virtual Book Groups

We used to have one but they have reproduced and now we have three!

All our book groups welcome new members -this keeps them super friendly (non-cliquey) and full of new ideas! Books are suggested and agreed on (via anonymous voting) by members.

Virtual South East London Book Group (all genres)

Virtual East London Non-Fiction Book Group

Virtual East London Book Group(all genres)

Serious stuff:

Knowing who you are Please use your own name and a recognisable picture. If you cannot do this for safety reasons message me and I will make alternate arrangements.

We want to have great turn outs to our meetups so we can have a brilliant time together! So….

We treat RSVP’ing to meetups as we would arranging to meet a friend

We always turn up We cancel in advance if we can’t come anymore We send our apologies to the event host if we have a last minute emergency (within 24 hours of the meetup starting)

Online safety Only share phone numbers and other personal information by private message. Do not share via comments as this is visible to everyone. We try and keep trolls out but people are not always who they seem to be online. You cannot be a member of this group if we cannot message you. You can always block someone on messaging if necessary.

Anyone suspected of joining only as an event promoter will be asked to leave the group.
