Do you fall somewhere along the rainbow spectrum? Are you a 35 year or older woman of color or supporter of women of color? Are you looking for new friends to do fun things? If you answered ‘yes’ to these three questions, then THIS is the group for you! As we get older, sometimes it can be difficult to find women “like us” to meet with, mingle and just have great, memorable times! It can be difficult to find activities that are not geared towards the younger crowd, or going to the bars and clubs. We would like to change that by establishing a group that is geared towards establishing meaningful connections that will hopefully last and lead to great friendships!
You qualify for this group if you are: • In the LGBTQIA family • 35 years or older, or your partner is 35 years or older and you’re both joining • Woman of color (African, African-American, multiracial, biracial, Latina, Asian, Indian, Native-American, Middle-eastern, etc.) or ANY supporters of WOC • Female • Looking to have fun and get involved
As we start this group, we want to make sure that it is an ACTIVE group. We want to actually get together and do things! We will be soliciting ideas for future events. Our goal is to try to have monthly activities that bring women who have traditionally been excluded (women, older, shades of brown, LGBTQIA) into a safe space that promotes inclusion, support, friendship, peace, harmony, fun and love. There are no cliques in this group, however we do encourage developing relationships with folks that you meet within the group so that you can grow your support system. We absolutely WELCOME new members that fit the criteria or who support those who do! Even if you don't match the demographic, but want to be involved with older, phenomenal women, then we welcome you too! There is no judgment, hate, bullying, nor intolerance permitted at all in this Meetup group.
We recognize that attending Meetups or other activities that you do not know people can be anxiety-provoking and so we promise to strive to actually come and greet new members and make you feel as welcome and as comfortable as possible. This may just be the FAMILY that you've been seeking!
It is imperative that all members of Our Space understand the position of The Organizers around intimidation, harassment, belittling, bullying and any and all forms of negativity towards another group member. Absolutely NONE OF THIS will be tolerated and will be cause for IMMEDIATE dismissal and blocking from the group.
