GATHERING

OLOC Regrets That We Have Cancelled the October 2016 Gathering in Atlanta.

We want you to know that we have cancelled the Gathering that was to happen in early October of 2016 in Atlanta.

National OLOC deeply regrets that ZAMI NOBLA and the Atlanta OLOC chapter terminated the partnership with us to produce it due to “irreconcilable differences” about how to advertise who was invited.

The ZAMI NOBLA and Atlanta OLOC Lesbians wanted to advertise the Gathering as welcoming “trans and cis” Lesbians. Since about half of our members and half of the Steering Committee prefer that OLOC be for female-born Lesbians, not self-identified Lesbians, some of the Steering Committee members did not want to do that. They wanted to stick with the membership statement they worked for years to come up with * and advertise it as “for all Old Lesbians”. While it was still under discussion, ZAMI NOBLA and Atlanta OLOC decided to end the relationship.

Note that National OLOC had already agreed to open this joint event to Lesbians 40 or older as fits ZAMI NOBLA’S membership guideline.

We don’t yet know when or where we will have our next Gathering, but we will let you know soon.

If you have already made flights or hotel reservations for Atlanta, simply cancel the hotel reservation. For airline, if you need assistance, let Ruth Debra know by contacting her at ruth@oloc.org or 760-318-6794. Registrations will be refunded.

We very much appreciate your support and understanding and we welcome constructive suggestions from our membership about this situation.

The National OLOC Steering Committee:

Sally Tatnall, Co-Director
Alix Dobkin, Co-Director
Jan Griesinger
Ruth Debra
Pat Cull
Bonnie Wagner
Ali Marrero-Calderon
Paij Wadley-Bailey

*Membership Statement as of 10/23/15: National OLOC welcomes as members Old Lesbians who have reached their 60th year.”
