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. 

HOW WE MANIFEST:
We host empowering and accessible workshops; design events and content that uplifts LGBTQ+ women entrepreneurs and entertainers; build opportunities to connect LGBTQ+ small businesses to their audiences; and facilitate social events that bring people together. Our year-round efforts culminate in an annual flagship event that brings over 1,000 LGBTQ+ women and allies together to kick off San Diego’s Pride week in July.

ALLYSHIP:
We welcome allies who want to celebrate the diverse experiences of women and non-binary folks by amplifying our voices and centering our experiences.

LAND ACKNOWLEDGMENT

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
