About Us

Who We Are:

We are a volunteer committee of LGBTQ+ women and non-binary folks centering the diverse experiences of LGBTQ+ women and people who feel at home with “she.” Together, we foster community connections for San Diego’s LGBTQ+ women and intentional allies; we combat homophobia, transphobia, and the patriarchy; and, we highlight and celebrate the spectrum of “she.” We are explicitly inclusive and affirming of trans women and non-binary folks.

Land Acknowledgment


Acknowledging our past includes recognizing that we are on stolen land. Our annual flagship event and many of us who organize our events occupy stolen land that was never ceded by the Kumeyaay people. The Kumeyaay people were forcibly removed through violence and atrocious human rights violations, and face disproportionate disparities that persist today. We urge folks to join us in learning more about Kumeyaay history, to join and follow the efforts of the Kumeyaay Defense Against the Wall, and take steps to stand in solidarity with Indigenous-led groups
