We ❤ groups

LGBT Foundation holds three pop-in groups specifically for women. 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 kate.hardy@lgbt.foundation.

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 or Stepping Stones?

Bloomers

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.

Carousel

Carousel is a relaxed social group for lesbian and bisexual women and for those who are questioning their sexual orientation.

It provides a valuable opportunity for women to come together, both in and away from the gay scene and take part in varied activities which are planned by the group themselves and range from quizzes and meals out to video evenings and discussions as well as a lot of laughs.

It takes place the first and third Tuesday of the month, 7.30pm - 9pm.

Stepping Stones

Stepping Stones provides a safe and welcoming space for women who are new to the area, 'coming out', have just come out of a relationship or simply want other women to talk to and share experiences with.

We choose and organise discussions around issues such as sexual health, homophobia and coming out and also invites guest speakers, which have previously included legal issues and health and well being.

This group takes place the second and fourth Tuesday of the month, 7.30pm - 9pm.
