Groups for women
LGBT Foundation holds three pop-in groups specifically for women. We also host a monthly women's reading group. Our groups are open to anyone who self-identifies as a lesbian, bisexual or questioning woman some or all of the time. They are all held at LGBT Foundation’s Resource Centre, Number 5, Richmond Street, Manchester, M1 3HF [map]. For more information contact Kate Hardy on 0345 3 30 30 30 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
We aim to make our groups accessible and welcoming to all. Our building is fully accessible for those with wheelchairs. If you require additional assistance to access a group (for example, a sign language interpreter) please contact us as we may be able to arrange this.
Why not check out our events calendar to see what activities are planned for the days you'd like to come along to Bloomers, Carousel, Stepping Stones or our Women's Reading Group?
Bloomers is a relaxed social group for older lesbian and bisexual women.
It provides a valuable opportunity for older women to meet and socialise in a friendly non-scene environment. The group takes place in the day-time so it's easier to access for those who prefer not to come out at night.
Bloomers is open to anyone who self-identifies as a lesbian or bisexual woman some or all of the time. It's aimed at women aged 55+ but all ages are welcome to attend.
Bloomers takes place the first and third Tuesday of the month, 1-3pm.

Women's Reading Group is a relaxed group for women to get together and discuss an LGBT-themed book.
It provides a space for you to explore some of our community's literature and discuss what you've been reading with others. The group takes place before our Carousel group so you can stay and go to the Carousel meeting after the book group if you want.
It takes place the first Tuesday of the month, 6.30pm - 7.30pm.
