DiningDs - Lesbian Events, Social Group and Dining Club based in London and Brighton
Dining Ds (also known as DiningDykes) is a Lesbian Social and Lesbian Dining Group based in London and Brighton that has been running for 7 years.
Members are able to go to events in both cities and it provides the perfect opportunity for women to meet new friends and discover the other city.
In addition to meals in both cities, we plan weekends away, meet ups at Brighton, London and Manchester Prides and picnics and BBQs in the summer.
DiningDs - Lesbian Social and Lesbian Dining Group is in association with GayGirlNet.com - a friendly lesbian community that has lesbian chat, lesbian dating and is a fun lesbian social network.
This means both that new members have the opportunity to meet other members online before attending events and that existing members can chat online and arrange activities with each other.
DiningDs was started so gay women could have a way of meeting other gay women off the scene. It's a great way of meeting new people, networking and there have also been several romances, two Civil Partnerships and even a baby!
The group is made up of women whose ages vary from 20 - 50s but the majority are in their 30s and 40s.
Although many of the members are professionals, the emphasise is very much on friendliness and meeting other gay women rather than being a group for 'Power Dykes!'
Don't worry if you're coming alone - nearly everyone will be in the same boat or at least will have been. One of the great things about the group is how everyone is made to feel welcome and people are never left out.
What we do
So far members have had their own candle-lit live music events, picnics, BBQs, Sunday roasts, speed dating, a charity treasure hunt, an adventure day, Champagne Dining, visited The Painting Pottery Cafe, been bowling, clubbing and been out for drinks.
And when do we do it
The meals are every month. One month they will be in London and the following month in Brighton.
Members from both cities can attend all of the meals.
They will usually be the last Saturday of the month and can be either lunch or dinner. Please visit the event section for details.
Members are emailed details of events before they are added to the website so they have priority booking. (Most of the meals sell out quite quickly).
