Welcome to the little corner of the world wide web that’s dedicated to women who love women – anywhere in Essex (UK).
If you’re a woman, over the age of 18, and identify as gay, lesbian, queer, bi, or are, indeed, unsure of your sexuality – this is a place where you can connect with other women for social events.
We welcome all girls, whatever your shape, size, colour, football team or bank statement. Want to know more?
We are a social group that aims to provide women with fun – and friends. It doesn’t matter if you are “out” or not, you can come to our events and meetings knowing that they are either “lesbian only”, “women only” or “members, friends and family”.
Many events are held in public places BUT at least twice a month we meet in a safe place away from the public eye.
You’ll find that our group is incredibly diverse – there are couples and singles, some have children, some have cats ;), some are young, others feel young… You can call yourself “lesbian”, “bi”, “gay” or Susan, you are all welcome.
What we are not…
Well, it’s not a dating group. We’re friends – and we go to restaurants, play pool, have barbecues, poker nights (!), days at the beach, walks, film and games nights, art classes and meet for coffee, tea and biscuits… That said, some couples were singles before they joined the group ;).
Where we are
No, you’re not the “only lesbian in Essex”, but we sure know that it can feel like it. Even in the social media age it can still be hard to find like-minded women of all age groups. We’re everywhere in Essex…
Quite a few of us are based somewhere along the A13/ A127. We definitely have “quite a few” members in the wider Southend area, but we do have members on and past the London border, as far North as Clacton and as far South as Thurrock, too.
We are very keen to extend our group both North and West, so even if you live a little further away please get in touch and we’ll try to arrange an event nearer to where you live.
Our aim is for as many of you as possible to meet up and find out that you are not alone!
We are a little careful with displaying contact details because some women may have difficult backgrounds or an added need for safety. You can email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or you can write to us:
