Want to meet other women, or get some local support? Below are some useful links to organisations, venues and events that may be of use to LB+ women in Greater Manchester. If you know of a link that should appear here, email [email protected] to let us know.

Groups marked * are women-only or have women-only activities. Our services for women are open to anyone who self-identifies as a woman some or all of the time and is lesbian, bisexual or questioning their sexual orientation. This includes non-binary or gender-fluid people who want to access a women's space. We do not knowingly list groups or organisations who discriminate against trans people.

Please note that as a result of the pandemic some of the groups may have changed the way they operate.
