alba's early beginnings
So what was the driving force that led to the creation of alba? In the spring of 2000, a couple of lesbians were bemoaning the lack of places to meet other lesbians in an easy social setting. Some didn't want to just go to bars or clubs. They also wanted a networking space, possibly with speakers or around a theme. To meet other lesbian women, and to have conversations with women who enjoy their work, were possibly in business for themselves, or working in a wide range of organisations, or who simply want to meet other lesbians.
alba now has a long herstory of monthly meetings, a mid winter dinner and an end of year celebration. Meetings provide the space for lesbians to indicate what's on offer during the next month as well as the chance to hear a diverse range of speakers.
