We are a group of female-identified LGBTQ people that meets regularly in the Triangle for social activities, networking opportunities, and mutual support. Our primary goal is to strengthen our community through empowerment, education, and by providing valuable resources. More than this, however, we want to bring together this diverse group of women to make connections, form bonds, provide support, and create new friendships. The LGBT Center of Raleigh’s Women’s Initiative is a group that seeks to bring together women of all ages and backgrounds within the LGBT Community of the Triangle. This group is open to lesbian-identified and queer women, bisexual women, and transgender women.
