Tired of the bar scene but want to meet new people and form new friendships! Let's get together for affordable activities and anything else that looks like fun. I hope we all have suggestions for varied activities!
This is not intended as a hook-up or dating site (but the heart does what the heart does). Primarily geared to forming friendships in the midlands for our lesbian community.
Having moved here from Orlando, Florida I immediately noted that the area lesbians tend to stay in a sort of cocoon. Bars seem to be the only venue available to meet women. Hopefully, we can organize small venues and excursions to include dining, theater, book club. Whatever! Fun and fellowship being the key. Please suggest any venue and activity.
My first time organizing a group. I look forward to meeting interesting intelligent and humor filled friends!!
RSVP's are VERY important! If you RSVP yes but then are unable to attend, PLEASE update your RSVP to no. Please be considerate as this is VERY important for venues in which there is limited seating.
-------------------------------------------------------- SAPPHO: Sappho (/ˈsæfoʊ/; Attic Greek Σαπφώ [sapːʰɔ̌ː], Aeolic Greek Ψάπφω, Psappho [psápːʰɔː]) was a Greek lyric poet, born on the island of Lesbos. The Alexandrians included her in the list of nine lyric poets. Her birth was sometime between 630 and 612 BC, and it is said that she died around 570 BC, but little is known for certain about her life. The bulk of her poetry, which was well-known and greatly admired through much of antiquity, has been lost. But, her immense reputation has endured through surviving fragments. A painting of Sappho by eroticist Édouard-Henri Avril depicting lesbian sexual practices in an ahistorical generalized Classical context Sappho's poetry centers on passion and love for various people and both sexes. The word lesbian derives from the name of the island of her birth, Lesbos, while her name is also the origin of the word sapphic; neither word was applied to female homosexuality until the 19th century. The narrators of many of her poems speak of infatuations and love (sometimes requited, sometimes not) for various females, but descriptions of physical acts between women are few and subject to debate. Whether these poems are meant to be autobiographical is not known, although elements of other parts of Sappho's life do make appearances in her work, and it would be compatible with her style to have these intimate encounters expressed poetically, as well. Her homoerotica should be placed in the context of the 7th century (BC). The poems of Alcaeus and later Pindar record similar romantic bonds between the members of a given circle.
