Speed mate-ing at the Confidence Conference for Lesbian and Bisexual Women
21 / 10 / 17  (11am-12)   |   LGBT Foundation

In Autumn 2017, LGBT Foundation Women’s Programme is launched a Confidence Movement for Lesbian and Bisexual Women, including women of colour, older women, disabled/neurodivergent women, trans women, non-binary people and transfeminine people.

To launch this movement, they held a FREE Confidence Conference for Lesbian and Bisexual Women on  October 21st October. This part of the movement was about meeting new people in new ways, and finding the confidence to do so - so we were honoured to have been asked to run a mini edition of our popular Speed Mate-ing event as part of it.
