We potluck, so bring a light dish to share if you choose, and your enthusiasm! Check us out on Facebook to join our discussion forum and get further information about the group, and meeting topics/themes.
*As some things we'll touch on will be unique to our shared story of being lesbian, some meetings are "closed" to lesbian-identified and questioning women only; many of our more broad meetings will be open to our wonderful and appreciated community allies ("closed" meetings will always be noted in the Facebook calendar event).
