After living in a womens' refuge in central London for 12 months, having fled a violent same sex relationship, I had no friends and did not know any lesbian clubs or social gathering places.
My life in London began in the wee small bookshop, I can't say its all been pleasant as in life you dont get on with everyone, but even now from time to time I pop back in, for friendly banter or a full on debate. I met my long standing friend of 7 years here.
I now know London pretty well and am hoping to get married to my partner at the end of this year...now marriage is possible at last! I have a very large place in my heart for this group as it is a valuable first point for any lesbian young or old, also a place to re-connect after a relationship break-up. It's an essential part of lesbian life in London.
