Sponsored by the LGBT Community Center of the Desert, we will be posting Meetups for plays, movies, potlucks, dinners out, hiking etc. All LGBT women are welcome and memberships is not required. I meet a lot of women at The Center that are new to town and don't know anyone or women that have lived here for years and have yet to find community. Although The Center offers fitness programs, workshops, bridge, drawing, bereavement support and counselling within our walls, we realize that there is a need to facilitate Women's community outside of our walls. We are happy to join with other groups creating and sponsoring events for LGBT women; especially events for Women by Women. We want to create a space where LGBT women feel they belong and they are welcome, a place to join up, meet new friends and have some fun.
I was and still am someone who struggles with being painfully shy. I hear women say, I don't feel comfortable going because I don't know anyone. I know how difficult it can be to walk up to group . ( I used to almost faint when as my first job as a bank teller - I had to say hi to approaching customers). I and my partner will be at the meetups, come find us and get a hug and tag along with us. Come see me at The Center. I'm here 9 to 4 most days and say hi and then you will know someone in the group. We are family, we belong to each other.
