About the event

A New Social Group for Lesbians 55 and Over

The Senior QCF group meets the second Wednesday of each month from 1:00-3:00 PM. This month, the group will meet at Midwood Smokehouse behind Park Road Shopping Center. If the weather is nice, we're going to walk the Greenway afterward.

This new group is for anyone 55 and over who identifies as a Lesbian. We're going to meet twice a month - once during the day, and once in the evening, on the second and fourth Wednesdays. This is to allow those who may still be working to attend at least once a month. I'm Linda Lawyer and I will be the coordinator initially.

A little history - in 1986, a lesbian social group called Queen City Friends was started, to provide an alternative to the bars. It met twice a month, in the evening, at Godfather's Pizza at Park Rd Shopping Center. They also had hayrides, Valentine Dances; they went to outdoor concerts, picnics, and they danced after women's music concerts to their own music tapes at a gay bar. QCF lasted for 7 or 8 years and a lot of friendships were made from those twice-monthly meetings.

So it appears that the need is there once again, this time to give senior lesbians a place for friendship and food.

With Covid still making people sick, and a population like ours that is more vulnerable, we should expect everyone who joins the group to be vaccinated and boosted.

If you can make it or would like additional information, please email me Linda Lawyer at LAL_28216@yahoo.com or call (704) 650-7386 so she can reserve the approximate number of seats, and have your information in case she need to get in touch with you.

This is going to be a work in progress for awhile but we're going to have fun doing it.
