“ I imagined a time when being gay is as unquestioned and un-judged as is having blue eyes. Some might call it fantasy or science fiction. I’d like to think it’s the future. ”
“ Love has always been the chief business of my life, the only thing I have thought—no, felt—supremely worth while, and I don’t pretend that this experience was not succeeded by others. But at that time, I was innocent, with the innocence of ignorance, I didn’t know what was happening to me. I was without consciousness, that is to say, more utterly absorbed than was ever possible again.

[close] This is an online book club for the lesbian community. Anyone is free to join and discuss/comment on books that have or are being read. We meet up once a month somewhere in Central London to discuss the current read. We look forward to seeing you there, but do not feel like you need to attend every event, as there will be online discussion boards for you to discuss your thoughts and opinions. Enjoy and broaden your horizons.

[close] MBB Book Club’s goal? To provide you with a book for all stages of life, all moods and all existential crises. We plan to gradually cover these books below (and more) in our upcoming Book Clubs. And then based on our discussions, we will create mini reviews and upload them here. MBB Book Club is for women who both have and have not experienced sexual violence. We want to use it as a way to bring together those who require our services with those who support what we do. We are all about reading our way to female empowerment and the understanding of ourselves. There are so many authors out there who are tearing apart gender binaries, turning ‘birds and the bees’ conversations on their heads, and articulating everything you’ve ever noticed about the unequal power structures around you. This list is only the tip of the iceberg. We intend to have a monthly Book Club to take place at The Pineapple Pub in London (https://www.facebook.com/events/258524067855338/). From discussions on here, we will work out what the theme and relevant book will be for each session. Then we will submit reviews of these 'chosen' books up here based on our fruitful discussions!
