The theme for the Gathering is
Old Lesbians Mobilize for the Future.
The Gathering of Old Lesbians from across the nation presents us with a thrill in one of those rare opportunities to be in our larger community, our Lesbian center. Workshops, a keynote speaker, entertainment, caucuses and a dance—all produced by Old Lesbians, for Old Lesbians. This is an opportunity to share with and to learn from each other and especially, to enjoy ourselves together!
More details to follow soon!
