LOT Get-together For Documentary

A number of women who were involved in LOT (Lesbians Organising Together) during the 1990s met last month to remember and record LOT history. The gathering animatedly recalled the breadth of services LOT provided and the scope of LOT’s external involvements.

“We were aware at the time that we were able to set up the organisation due to the hard work of previous groups and women,” says original LOT member, Susan Miner. “The motivation to gather now came from the upcoming Outitude documentary about the lesbian community; the get-together was filmed and some content may appear in the documentary.”

Along with a drop-in centre, LOT provided space for women first coming out or exploring their sexual orientation, agitated for better healthcare, made legal submissions, and hosted social and community events including, for three years, the Wild and Wonderful Women’s Weekend. LOT partnered with WERRC organising several Lesbian Lives Conferences. LOT and Dublin Lesbian Line were both members of the NWCI.
