Support OLOC!

Dear OLOC Sisters: December 2014

In the 1970s and 1980s I worked with others to produce some of our early lesbian concerts as well as the large San Francisco Pride Stage. Since then the occasions we get to feel that fabulous lesbian feminist energy seem to have dwindled...except when going to OLOC gatherings!

It’s thrilling to have an organization dedicated to Old Lesbians!! Here’s a list of why I give to OLOC.

Hopefully you share these sentiments:

-OLOC is committed to creating space for Lesbians

- OLOC has an amazing website with all sorts of practical and fun information, including contacts and resource lists. Check it out at:

-OLOC has fabulous regional networks with meetings and social gatherings

OLOC produces fantastic National Gatherings that are wild and wonderful and energizing and inclusive and deep

· OLOC is committed to creating space for Lesbians (did I say that already? It certainly bears repeating) and also challenging and opposing ageism, racism, classism, sexism, and ableism; standing in solidarity with allies for racial, economic, and social justice

At our age we know who supports these types of activities – only we do! So please open your hearts and minds and your checkbooks/credit cards and contribute to this amazing, one-of-a-kind Lesbian organization. And then tell all your friends to do it too!!
