We’re very excited to announce Summer Camp 2015! This year we’re heading to Tattenhall in Cheshire on 24th-26th July. There are lots of new things to try out and lots of fun to be had. Summer Camp is open to all young women, 14-25, who identify as lesbian or bisexual.
On Saturday 28th of March (10:45-3pm) the young women’s group will be taking a trip to Shibden Hall in Halifax, home to the late Anne Lister. Don’t know who Anne Lister was? Not to worry you’ll find out on the 28th. If you can’t wait until then you can find out more here. We have a minibus to take us there and your lunch will be provided. There are only TEN(!) places so need to be sure you can make it to get a place. Comment on here or get in touch with Myrtle on myrtle[@]lgbtynw.org.uk or 07530 316 656 if you’d like to come along on this lovely day out!
The Christmas season can be difficult for young lesbian and bisexual women for many reasons. Here is some handy advice from the young women peer supporters in Rochdale and Heywood for LB women everywhere …
Welcome Samantha our new staff member who is going to be working with you all on research into Lesbian and Bisexual young women’s needs. If you want to get in touch you can email her on Samantha [at] lgbtynw.org.uk
The Young Women’s Project have a new campaign - #OwnYourSelfie which will be the theme of our next Young Women’s Summit on Saturday 22nd November 11am – 4pm. Young women are invited to bring along a couple of photos to print and decorate their own picture frame. We’ll be placing them in a temporary gallery for the day alongside other inspirational and brilliant women. You’ll get to take away your photos and frames too! Whilst enjoying some craft we’ll have discussions around ownership of women’s photos and in turn women’s bodies and get tech savvy with some ‘Social Media Privacy 101′. For lunch we’ll have a nice indoor ‘Pic-nic’ (see what we did there?) at The Joyce Layland LGBT Centre where the summit takes place. Afterwards we’ll be heading to the Contact Theatre for a free live show. Places are limited so you’ll need to book in advance. To do this visit the Eventbrite page at http://goo.gl/7tMi79 Any questions just drop Myrtle a line at email@example.com
We will be reviewing the year just gone and planning the coming year, plus electing three people to be our committee for the year.

Whether you’re interested in campaigning, arts, poetry, history, discussions, the outdoors, games and other great things there is lots to get involved with through the YWG and our monthly summits.
