Welcome!

Sydney Lesbian Open House is a free, informal discussion/social group ideal for anyone just coming out or for people who have been out for ages but have just lost contact with their community.It is sponsored by the Women's Library in Newtown, Sydney.

We invite women who identify as lesbian, bisexual, asexual, transgender or just-don't-know to our meetings. We have women of all ages and backgrounds who come along - students, housewives, artists, computer geeks, retirees, nail artists, teachers, nurses etc etc.

What do we talk about?
Discussion topics that have come up in previous meetings include:
*Is there a lesbian scene in Sydney and do you feel comfortable in it?
* Breaking up - is there an easy way to do it?
*What do you feel passionate about?
Do you have to sleep with a woman to be sure you're a lesbian?
*If your life was a book, what genre would it be, i.e. - sci fi, horror?
*The 'Once Were Wives Club' - why are so many married women coming out?
*'All you need is love' - is that a load of bollocks?
Meetings are held each and every Tuesday at 7pm.

We meet at the Womens Library at 8 - 10 Brown Street, Newtown (just behind the public library). The meeting starts with introductions then the facilitator for that evening brings up the topic for discussion. Topics range from the serious to the silly or the seriously silly. You can talk on the topic or just listen to what everyone else is saying. The meeting ends with a run down of all the good venues, movies, events, parties that are coming up. Then it's off to a cafe for coffee/food and gossip.

We invite women who identify as lesbian, bisexual, asexual, transgender or just-don't-know to our meetings. We have women of all ages and backgrounds who come along - students, housewives, artists, computer geeks, retirees, nail artists, teachers, nurses etc etc.

But wait - theres steak knives!
Yes, I know it's downright frightening hooking up with some group you've read about over the Internet. Well if you want to get a real taste of what we're about send your questions to sydneyopenhouse@yahoo.com.au and we'll answer them. You could also ask to go on "the Loop" - an email newsletter that comes out each week listing the topic for discussion that week as well as some general news and gossip about what's been going on.
