What we're about
Are you a lesbian lounger? coffee and conversation couple? film loving femme? dining dyke, butch geek, disco diva or queer cultural collaborator 😄 ? Or do you just simply want to extend your local lesbian networks? Are you new to the area and want to meet new lesbian friends? If so, this is YOUR group!
Vanessa set up the group in 2013 to provide an informal, social hub for the local lesbian community .
The group was set to fill a gap for those of us who are lesbian In-betweeners i.e. are not into clubbing and pubs every weekend but also not catered for by the predominately older style LGBT meet up groups in Eastbourne. It's a great way to network and meet friends. Over the past three years we have had over 200 meet ups, including beach barbecues, dining delights, cocktail and pottery throw downs, film evenings, Towner teas, music and arts events and walks.
This an inclusive and friendly group which positively welcomes new members. All members are encouraged and empowered to be leaders and organisers and create their own fab and funky meet ups . There are no leaders and followers in the group . All members can organise events, but there is no pressure to do this. So why not come and join us? Our ethos is about collaboration & mutual support for our Lesbian members . We are agenda and attitude free . We run this group as non-profit and we have no external public or commercial funding . There is a voluntary donation tab to keep the group going & ongoing fundraising events .
