Over 13,000 people logged on throughout the day and found everything from LGBTQ+ womxn politicians talking about their experiences, to a pet fashion show. Participants learned about self-care methods, stretching and yoga from a LGBTQ+ instructor and learned from LGBTQ+ youth, mixed, mingled, and most importantly, celebrated one another.
As the pandemic marches on, so too do we. With loneliness and isolation raging, and the fate of large in-person gatherings remaining uncertain, our volunteer group continues to pivot and we’ve morphed into a team dedicated to bringing robust year-round programming to LGBTQ+ womxn in San Diego and beyond. Our efforts will continue to culminate in our annual event, but we’ve also got our sights set on spreading joy, community, and enrichment throughout the entire year through virtual events and on-demand content.
We can’t wait for you to see it! And I hope that once it’s safe to do so again, you might consider joining us in San Diego for some beaches, some burritos, some beer, and some very gay times celebrating LGBTQ+ womxn.
