Quaker Lesbian Conference West

From Friends on the West Coast. - sm

Announcing the 27th Annual Quaker Lesbian Conference, July 20-23 2007 in Ben Lomond, CA

Dear Friends,

"Dreams and Visions" will be the theme of the 27th Annual Quaker Lesbian Conference. It will be held July 20-23, 2007 at Ben Lomond Quaker Center in Ben Lomond, California (approximately 30 minutes from Santa Cruz and an hour and a half from San Francisco).

QLC is a sweet gathering of queer-identifying women. We especially welcome younger women and women of color. At this time we are unable to provide facilities for children.

Dreams, visions and nightmares inform our whole being. How do we embody our dreams? How do we transform our lives in such a way as to create the vision of our most essential selves? What do our nightmares tell us about ourselves? Can they benefit our growth?

Conference events include Quaker meeting for worship for both large and small sharing groups along with your choice of interest groups and workshops held by participants. We also have a Saturday night talent show.

Accommodations include camping and the Orchard Lodge (twin beds with shared bathrooms). Wheelchair accessible accommodations are available.

Well-balanced vegetarian meals will be served Thursday night through Sunday lunch. Substitutes for dairy and wheat will be available.

Please feel free to announce our gathering at your Meeting. We are seeking to expand our geographical range and look forward to meeting women from near and afar. At this time we do not have online registration, but interested women may print and email the attached pdf registration form. If you have questions for us, please contact Deva Luna or Terra Lee at 408-259-0446 or email them at

Julie Murphy
Registrar, QLC 2007
