Richmond Lesbian-Feminists celebrate 40 years (event list)
Richmond’s longest running, lesbian-specific support group and social club, The Richmond Lesbian Feminists, is celebrating 40 years this month. We’ve got a longer story on the group coming out in a few days, but they wanted us to share some info about their ticketed events which need a bit more of a reservation.
Richmond Lesbian -Feminists evolved when a group at a workshop in 1975 were painfully aware that many feminist groups were either ignoring lesbians or actively trying to discourage their participation. Since the founding, RLF has hosted workshops, social gatherings, partnered with dozens of LGBTQ and human rights organizations and provided information to innumerous women through the newsletter which is still distributed in email form. RLF has been and is a non hierarchal, loosely organized group.
A week long of activities begins with the RLF 40th Celebration for all of the Richmond Community on Saturday, July 18. SAGE,Central Virginia is hosting a panel discussion on Wednesday, July 22nd in the Diversity classroom at 6:30 pm on what is lesbian-feminism, that is also open to the community. Celebrating 40 Years of Bringing Women Together will continue over the next weekend with a concert, potluck brunch,workshops, banquet and dance and a family picnic.
