THERE HAS BEEN A CHANGE OF VENUE FOR THIS EVENT: IT HAS MOVED FROM SHOREDITCH TO SOHO! xxx
Come down to The Society Club Soho for some wild and inclusive lesbian speed dating, our new monthly evenings compared by stand-up comedian, actress, and longhaired lesbian Genevieve Orsi.
A cocktail upon arrival is included in the price of the ticket, to whet everyone’s whistles and break a little ice. Then, around thirty people will date for three minutes each, in three half hour sessions, with short breaks in-between so as to allow you girls to top up your anxiety medication at the bar. After each little ‘date’, you’ll tick fancy or friend zone. If it’s a match, later in the week you will be sent an introductory email, like an elongated Tinder. After the dating there will be a mixer session, a casual group chill where you can hang out with your faves babes in this bohemian environment.
Though far from being a lipstick lesbian event, tonight promises to be a bi- and trans-friendly affair. We want to raise an awareness of the diverseness of gayness in this world where, too often, unless you have a buzzcut the woman you’re trying to seduce will typically mistake you for just another friendly straight girl that’s had a bit too much to drink. “We all feel that situation”, says Orsi, “when you’re in a gay bar and everyone around thinks your a fag hag and not a participant. Or when you grow out your nails and worry that you’ve grown out the last of your visible gay.”
Not just for fucking, but friendship too. Meet nice gay women and have a party.
Doors at 7pm, for a 7.30pm start.
“As a femme, how do you meet other woman apart from dating apps? Not that there’s anything wrong with dating apps but it can become unhealthy, time consuming, and impersonal. This is an evening for people who are more appealing IRL than on the internet (discounting that great insta filter that brings out your cheekbones or pictures taken with other people’s animals).” - Genevieve Orsi
