As a lesbian, finding ways to meet other gay women can be difficult. Knowing the right places to meet lesbians can help you be more socially active in the gay community and can also help you find a partner. Several places exist where you can meet lesbians in your area that you can befriend or date.
Searching the Internet is an effective way to find lesbian companions, even if you are looking to meet lesbians in person. Look on the Internet for one of the many websites designed for finding single lesbian women to date. Conduct a search and find lesbians who live in your area that you can meet in person. You can also look for websites that organise gay and lesbian group activities in your area. You can also search discussion forums, e-mail lists, Facebook groups or other similar groups and communities that encourage gays and lesbians in the same cities and towns to communicate with one another and attend group functions. If you are looking to meet lesbians online that you can later meet in person, starting with group meetings might be the best option.
Most average-sized and larger cities will have sponsored events such as gay pride parades, festivals, parties and outings several times a year. These events are highly advertised around cities with posters, radio spots and other advertisements. You can also check out the official lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgendered website for information on these events. Attend these events on your own or with a friend or two, to not only support gay rights, but to meet other lesbians. These events are open and nurture lesbian interactions, so its a fine place to meet a fellow lesbian.
Find a local gay establishment to visit. If you don't know which bars and restaurants are gay-friendly in your area, this information can be found online or in local newspapers because many gay establishments heavily advertise their support of the gay community. This is one of the most traditional forms of meeting gay women. Visit these bars and restaurants and reach out to interact and talk with other women at the bar. If you are not of the legal drinking age, or you don't enjoy attending bars and clubs, locate your city's LGBT community centre or look for a gay bookstore or coffee shop to meet other lesbians. Talk to as many people as possible at these establishments to get ideas for other gay-friendly establishments where you meet lesbians.
Read the classified section in your local newspaper for women seeking women. These ads are also featured on many newspaper's online sites. Check the paper for advertisements on lesbian events that might be held at local establishments. Try to attend lesbian events based around activities that you already do. For example, if you like biking, look for an all-lesbian biking club or race, If you enjoy reading, look in the classified section for a lesbian book club or poetry reading.
