Check out Dyke Diary for events of interest to lesbians and queer women. We update it as we receive information about events – please send us your suggestions (email is good!) of those we should be listing.
Also email us your Social & Support group updates and we’ll put them online as quickly as possible. We welcome comments (at the bottom of every page) and contributions. We also welcome your feedback and suggestions.
Don’t forget to visit our Facebook page – there are more links to stories there, and they don’t always get to the website.
