Where were the women?
As a single, senior-ish lesbian, I could find no other similar chicks to enjoy the events of The Winter Party Festival.
There were the usual number of fag hags there with their gay guy friends, a handful of young lesbian couples, and I think I even saw some lipstick lesbians. But where were the non-dancing, non partyers who wanted to walk the beaches, meet for a glass of wine, go off on a scooter together?
Locals told me to try again for the Aqua Girl, the all-woman event of South Florida. A pity that the Task Force, headed by a woman, was not able to rustle up the 5000 women they needed to make this a truly LGBT community event.
