The group is open to all women of any age who identify as lesbian, bisexual or queer. Refugees and asylum seekers welcome!
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!
There are a mixture of regular and one off online and face to face social, sporty and cultural events mostly based in East London. There are smaller events with limited numbers and a wait list and events that are unlimited in numbers. Many events are free or low cost. We also aim to give access details where these are available or at least give the link to the event. For ticketed events you will always be expected to buy your own tickets, but we will try to arrange to sit together.
NEW events coming soon: Disabled group, Online Speed Friending, Queer Spawn Group, Writers at the South Bank Centre

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!
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. If we meet via video link you must switch on both sound and video. Failure to do this will lead to termination of membership.
Promoters Anyone suspected of joining only as an event promoter will be asked to leave the group.
