COFFEE TALK – ORIGINAL BLEND
James Bay United Church, Upper Reception Room, 511 Michigan St.

COFFEE TALKWhere the coffee is fresh (we make it ourselves), the tea is properly steeped (Agatha insists), and women and newcomers of all ages are always welcomed (that’s the way we jellyroll) at this lesbian-oriented chestnut.

Enjoy a coffee break with friends. Over the years, Coffee Talk has been a safe, welcoming place for lesbians new to Victoria as well as returning ex pats, and for the ‘shycomers’ newly identifying themselves as lesbian.

at James Bay New Horizons, 234 Menzies St.

KISS MEIn Kiss Me, the Swedish drama directed by Alexandra-Therese Keining, a young woman engaged to be married finds herself in an affair with her soon-to-be stepmother’s lesbian daughter. The film won the Breakthrough Award at the 2011 AFI Festival and was featured on Autostraddle as one of “Eight Pretty Great Lesbian Movies You Haven’t Seen Yet.”

The night of the big blizzard kept many bundled up at home. Props to the feaarsome four who ventured out on icy roads to join Diane and Susie at the movies.
