Sundays 7th, 14th, 21st, 28th July, 5pm – 7pm

Birmingham LGBT Centre, 38-40 Holloway Circus, Birmingham B1 1EQ

FREE for LGBT + allies of all ages

Illuminate is a non-religious space with no formal liturgy, with sacred and secular music playing. We observe silence in a darkened room; a discussion follows, led by a group member or an informal chat in the second half.

It is a space for reflection and inspiration without a particular religious dimension.

OLN – Older Lesbian Network

Saturday 27th July, 1pm – 3.30pm

Birmingham LGBT, 38-40 Holloway Circus, Birmingham B1 1EQ

FREE for older lesbians (self-defined)

Older Lesbian Network meets every fourth Saturday of the month at 1pm at Birmingham LGBT Centre. Each meeting starts with a chat over shared food brought by the women attending and this is followed by a led discussion on a pre-arranged topic. Topics are decided by the group and usually planned about six months ahead. Sometimes group members with a special interest in a subject present ideas for discussion, other times we invite speakers with specialist knowledge. The group also meets socially from time to time for meals or theatre outings.

New members are always welcome. There is no set age limit; it is up to women who are considering attending to define ‘older’ as they wish. The focus of the group is, however, to support and value the lives of older lesbians.

Contact olnwestmidlands@gmail.com for more information.
