Lesbian Group of Victoria began in 1992, when
three Jewish Lesbian friends got together to organise a workshop for
Jewish Lesbians, as part of the Lesbian Festival
being held in Melbourne that year. The turnout
to the workshop was phenomenal, filling the room
with warmth, laughter and tears of recognition
and relief. We knew we had to keep on meeting!
So our group began...
Since then, we have kept meeting regularly.
Mostly, we meet in each others homes. But also,
we have social meetings at restaurants, cafes,
theatre etc. We celebrate the Jewish festivals
together. The Jewish Lesbian Group of
Victoria has worked consistently and
successfully to create significant change
in Jewish, Lesbian, Feminist and LGBTQI
communities around Australia.

In 2012 we celebrated our 20th anniversary!
Part of our celebrations included the planning,
fund-raising, production and editing of a
half-hour documentary film, “It’s Who We Are –
Celebrating 20 Years of the Jewish Lesbian Group
of Victoria”, which tells our remarkable story.
Now in 2014, our film is ready to be screened
at Jewish and LGBTI film festivals around the
world. We will be posting regular news about our
film on our facebook pages:
