Bay Area OLOC provides Old Lesbians with the opportunity to meet like-minded women in our common goal to challenge ageism, to share mutual interests, and to experience the joy and warmth of playing and working together.
We promote the visibility and pride of Old Lesbians. We celebrate our strengths, our talents, and our diverse life experiences.
We raise our voices against injustice of all kinds: racism, ageism, and homophobia.
We are a proud and active presence in social justice activities. Many of us are life-long activists and we appreciate working with other groups on today’s issues.
We call ourselves OLD with pride because we will no longer accommodate ourselves to language that implies in any way that “old” means inferior.
Bay Area OLOC organizes six events each year in addition to one-time-only activities as energy permits.
- RETREATS: 2 nights at a camp in the Napa woods in May and September.
- Three all-day GATHERINGS held in various locations in the Bay Area.
- A PICNIC held in an accessible park.
All of our events accommodate the hearing impaired and differently abled. Fees are based on each woman’s ability to pay.
We publish a newsletter six times a year preceding our scheduled events. We maintain this web page at oloc.org/bayareaoloc.
