'LesbiFriends Upstate' was created for ladies who love ladies and are seeking interesting events and conversation in the Upstate SC area. This is a social group that seeks to support and create a community for lesbian, bisexual, and transgender women.
Our members include women of all backgrounds; you are not excluded but celebrated and accepted. We plan to host events including: home gatherings, movies, drinks, dining, dancing, running/biking, festivals, museums, and a variety of other events for those ladies who simply like to have a good time and get to know each other.
