It's very hard for us to be 'seen' in an everyday capacity without shouting down everyone you meet about your sexuality. Quite often people just will assume we are straight. It's really hard to meet other women outside spaces that aren't strictly LGBTQ.
This group was made as there's a demand for it- it's not just for single women- it's for all LGBTQ femmes of colour that want to be able to socialise with others in a 'safe space' (any group where it's not necessary to have to think about people in our company not understanding or 'disagreeing' with the everyday realities we all face due to the crossover between racism, homophobia and various forms of stereotyping)...
...annnnnnd get to go to interesting, varied events, where we can enjoy being around each other as well as good music/art/drinks! No snobbery, just a chance to be around other women and have fun :)
By no means will anyone be made to feel uncomfortable for not being femme 'enough'; The aim is to provide a space for femmes primarily because it's particularly hard for us to find other lesbians, gender queer or bisexual women without help.
Feel free to make suggestions on events or activities to schedule!
