What we're about
Thank you for your interest in our group. We are currently closed to new members in order to keep our group small and build community.
Powerful, beautiful, successful and feminine! Do you think of yourself as a Professional Lipstick Lesbian and wonder where all the other Chicago lipstick lesbians are? Well we hope to meet and congregate here with this group. The first and foremost aim of this group is to have fun! Do you enjoy mani’s and pedi’s, current fashion trends, local trendy restaurants, make up, heels, fine wine, live music, an occasional night out dancing? We are a very small, selective group of attractive, 35 year old - 50 plus feminine lesbian/queer women.
This group is not intended for all members of the LGBT community, but is rather a subculture of the community and their partners.
"Lipstick Lesbian Divas of Chicago” is a respectful, open-minded, positive, drama-free group for professional, femme lesbians who want to make friends, network, socialize, and have fun with other femme women in the community.
Events will be unique, upscale, and always engaging. We host events such as:
- Movie Outings; Gay film fest; Gay movie nights
- Concerts; Music festivals; Open Mic; Explore local Live music venues
- Art Museums; Chicago History LGBT lectures, Photography exhibits;
- LGBT Charity events; Political fundraising events; volunteering opportunities
- Brunch and dinners, Wine Tasting and Lectures
- Hiking our lovely State parks
- Weekly cycling, century rides
- Salsa/Tango, Art lessons, Group Boxing exercise class
- Hosted events: Game night, amuse bouche house parties
- And we will always be open for suggestions
Examples of recent outing include but are not limited to the following: JAM, MINI BAR, JANES, Dot 429 for brunch, Catch 35, Carnivale, The Drake, Cosina Grill, Il Mulino, Sunda, Ethiopian Diamond, Indie Cafe for dinner, Starved Rock, Lakefront trail for outdoor activities, The tasting room for wine tasting events, Joie de Vine events, Illinois Equality, Howard Brown, Garden of Eve, Design for a cure, cooking for soup kitchens, NOH8 Campaign for charity, Margaret Cho, Live blues and jazz, Lipstick Thursdays, Chicago Film makers screenings, LGBT film festival and much more... We keep an active calendar that includes popular events in the LGBT community.
This group is not a swinger's club, poly group, a hook-up site, pre-op trans group of ladies or a dating service. Nor is this a group for curious straight married women.
There is a $10.00 annual membership fee to be paid by paypal. This fee will go towards the cost of web-hosting our site and miscellaneous expenses. If the membership fee is something you care not to contribute to please let us know and we will discontinue your membership without question or prejudice.
We require a photo submission in lieu of voice authentication. Membership will not be granted without a photo. Our group requires an authentic photo where we can clearly see your face (no fake photos, photos of animals, or landscaping pics, etc) and a first name in profile. You can add additional photos of any other images. This is to ensure transparency within the group. The safety of our members is the utmost importance and this also facilitates connection during our meetups. Thanks for understanding.
A 4 week membership is granted without any commitment - membership dues will be required after the 4 week period has expired.
We are more interested in hosting a page with active members. Members that do not participate in activities or pay membership dues within 30 days or less may be removed from the group to make room for members that can provide active participation.
Since we "don't look like Lesbians", other Lesbians don't recognize us, which means we are often excluded from the united front. (Also, we don't get asked out.)
So here is a place just for us, where we don't have to apologize for being feminine, we aren't expected to entertain men, and everyone knows we're not straight.
If this sounds like you please join the group!
