New Older Womens’ Group at The Lesbian and Gay Foundation

15 May 2013 - 13:02 by michelle.foster

The Lesbian and Gay Foundation (LGF) are pleased to announce a new group for bisexual and lesbian women who are older (50 plus). Being older can be an isolating experience, and LGF believe that there is little out there for older LB women to meet, chat, explore and create, this is why they are launching this new and exciting group.

The group will be a social support group, which means there will be discussions that are relevant to the group, as well as fun stuff such as games, quizzes, crafts and also workshops.

Welfare Reform and Advice Support

One of the dangers for me in writing a blog is that I'll end up writing only about things I'm angry about (there seems to be quite a lot at the moment) and it will become a terribly depressing read.
