I was just wondering if anyone knows of any LGBTI social events etc. I am not originaly from Sydney, and though I've been here for a while now, I've found it difficult to meet/ make friends with other women, beyond my work collegues, particularly other women who identify as same-sex attracted. (Btw, I don't mean to date, or to meet potential partners, just friends).
Although I'm familiar with a couple of venues around Newtown and Oxford St that host monthly women's nights etc, I don't drink much or enjoy clubbing, so they aren't events that I really feel comfortable/ natural at. I even found myself at an MCC church service once, though I don't identify as a Christian right now, or really have a relationship with God. I also recently attended one of the Open Nights at Newtown Women's Library, but although everyone was quite welcoming, most of the women were a lot older than me (I'm 25). Similarly, I went to one of the fredom2b meetings in Sydney last year, however most of the other attendees were men, or older women. (Not that I don't enjoy being around people of all ages and genders, but it would be really nice to get to know more queer women around my own age).
I guess I just feel a little lost because there doesn't seem to be anywhere that I fit in, even though I've tried to 'put myself out there', so to speak, by attending different events and things. Somehow, even though I've been here for nearly two years now, I just feel really disconnected from others, and even though I'm really grateful for a lot of things in my life, it's starting to get me down a bit.
Any suggestions or ideas will be very welcome!
