Surf Camp 8-9th July 2016



WomenZone Surf Camp has been running for more than 10 years and has become an important fixture on the social calendar.

This year it will be the 8th and 9th of July. Located on the beautiful Gower penninsular, WZSC is a great weekend of surf, laughs, camping and women.

Don't worry if you're not a surfer - there are plenty of people who come just to enjoy the spectacular Llangennith beach, the good company, the impromptu volleyball games and the Saturday night bonfire.

It is a women only camp for lesbians held on the popular Hillend Campsite, so although we have our own field the toilets are shared with the rest of the site. There aren't formal activities arranged but surf lessons are available from the Welsh Surfing Federation (located in the carpark) and there is always something going on! Dogs are not allowed, sorry.

To find out more have a look at the facebook group - feel free to ask any questions. Click to buy tickets - they are £33-£53 for the two nights camping.

About Indigo 

A popular night with a regular following, Indigo Bristol is an informal social networking group for lesbian, bi, queer and trans women.

Our events are the perfect way to make new friends, catch up with old friends, get to know the city and build a network of strong contacts.

Indigo Events are held on the 1st Thursday of every month in the plush and relaxed surrounds of Goldbrick House. Women travel from all over the South West for our unique mix of friendly faces, ideas and laughter. New Guests Welcome

Many new guests come each month, many of these arrive on their own.

Research project: LGBT+ people and GP Services in Later Life



Michael Toze, a PhD researcher at the University of Lincoln, is looking for lesbian and bisexual women aged 60+ throughout the UK who would be willing to participate in a one-off confidential interview about GP services. At present there is little academic research about general practice services for LGBT+ people later in life. As a result it can be difficult for services and local LGBT+ groups to identify ways in which services could be made more inclusive

I’m looking to hear about what’s important to you about GP services, and get a sense of different experiences, whether good, bad or mixed. Interviews will be arranged at a time and place convenient for you.  For more details visit https://mtozelgbt.wordpress.com/ or get in touch at mtoze@lincoln.ac.uk or ring 01522 835443.

Lesbian walking Holidays 2016

Informal lesbian walking breaks taking place in 2016 (organised voluntarily- not a walking company!)  

These breaks are happening in the Yorkshire Dales (May), Lake District (August), Gower (August) and Wye Valley (September), giving opportunities to explore some beautiful areas. They're for smallish sized groups - maximum twelve and are over a weekend or a few days. It's friendly and relaxed, staying together in small hotels or B and B's, (own room or shared) and with evenings for eating, drinking and fun. Twelve women came to the first of these get-togethers in the Chilterns last autumn -most came alone, a few with a friend or partner. Everyone had a good time, so it's encouraged me to plan some more.

Walks on each day are with an experienced and friendly walk leader. They're not arduous and it's all very flexible - there's no obligation to walk if you prefer to do your own thing - or stay in bed!

A number of women have already booked to go on the different breaks in 2016 and there are still some  spaces  available.

More details (info sheet) from Sue:
stridingout@hotmail.com

Or join the (closed, so private) Facebook group on www.facebook.com/groups/849010925207916
You can see info and updates on there  (almost 100 women have shown interest and joined since it was set up recently.)

Welcome to the Voyage



Welcome to The Voyage

A horn blasts loud into the night. People appear. Something glitters in the dark. Your feet tap to the heartbeats of strangers. A journey is about to begin.

---------------
The Night
---------------

Go backwards. It’s 1900 & the world is grey. In the gloom it’s hard to tell where one day ends & the next begins. Power lies with shadows. Here is not a good place to be different.

Some of us are plotting an escape - outsiders dreaming of the sun. There are rumours of a journey. A pilgrimage for all kinds of ‘other’, part-party, part-passing - polychromatic & peppered with rum.

A handsome duo approach. Flashing an illicit neon glove, the gentlewoman whispers “the horizon is ours for the taking”. The chap reaches inside his long dark coat & presents you with a strange-looking ticket, “swap dirge for hope & high spirits”. Flourishing a sapphire handkerchief he winks & extends his hand.

Abandon the bland.

Join us for a kaleidoscopic celebration of life.

Expect: Grey sleeves & glitter. Grog and prosecco. Dancing, DJs & Dazzle. Stowaways & Sawdust. Stars & Sky. New Friends, Old Friends & A Foggy Head.

The Location is SECRET. Instructions including costume suggestions will be sent after booking.

----------------
Dress Code
----------------

Top Hats & Sunday Best. Stiff collars, starched shirts & rebellious dashes of day-glo. Expedition get-up. The period traveller. Mariners and urchins.

----------------------------------------------------
 The Voyage is the 4th creation from Indigo & Members. Following in the sprit of 'Prohibition', 'Blackout' and 'The Night Circus', this Xmas event celebrates our wonderful diverse city.
