in many cities of Russia, and now come women from the USA, Germany and Sweden. Many publications about our club is on the Internet. http://lesbi.ru/tag/2108
For 10 years we have held festivals of female creativity, there participated bards, musicians, poets and writers in Moscow, St. Petersburg and other Russian cities.
We are involved in human rights campaigns and events dedicated to the "Week Against Homophobia" in conjunction with the
organization "Rainbow Association" and concluded a cooperation agreement with the organization "Rakurs" (Arkhangelsk).
