Lesbian Strength March and Rally

£3,155 of £3,000 goal

Raised by 104 people in 3 months
We are a group of proud lesbian (adult female homosexual) women organising a march and rally for lesbians to be held in Leeds, UK on Saturday 7th September 2019 starting from City Square at 2p.m.

All women loving women are welcome.

We want to celebrate all lesbians past and present from all walks of life.

Our sincere desire is for all lesbians to be able to embrace themselves, to be comfortable with their sexuality and for them to know that they are loved and appreciated just as they are.

We acknowledge and condemn the lesbophobia and misogyny still very much present in our communities today all over the world and the resulting prejudice, persecution and violence our lesbian sisters face every day.

We wish to honour them and we stand with them in our struggle to be free.

We would like to draw strength and inspiration from our rich lesbian and feminist history to recreate and reaffirm lesbian culture and lesbian only spaces. 

We need to raise some funds to meet the costs of organising this march and rally such as travel costs for women on a low income who wish to attend the event, bands, other musicians and speakers, P.A./sound system and venue hire.

Whilst our march is for lesbians,  we welcome all our female friends to join us to listen to the exciting range of local and national speakers at the end of our march for the rally in Millenium Square around 3p.m. 

And of course, there will be music. 

Please give what you can to support us.

Thank you!

In sisterhood ✊♀️♀️

Hello everyone!

We are very pleased that we are now at £2090 which means we have exceeded our second target of £2000 which is absolutely amazing!

We are overwhelmed with the support you have shown us so far with your donations and comments.

We are very grateful for every single donation and we have decided to raise our target to £3000 as we intend to use any money not used for our march and rally to help set up and develop a community group for lesbians together.

We will, of course, keep you updated on our progress making our march and rally happen and will give more details of our community group as soon as we are ready.

Many many thanks again from all of us at the Lesbian Strength Collective to you
