  • LGBT Women in Melbourne UTOPIA VERIFIED JAN 2016
      5 Kurnai Ave, Reservoir
      +61 42-588-7706, email

      Formerly known as Melbourne Rainbow Grrls, created as there are very few events for rainbow womyn that are not held at bars. It can be very hard to meet womyn and make lasting friendships in these venues. However the group has grown and they do now include an occasional group outing to a bar. A meet-up group has a no bars policy on which type of same sex attracted woman attend events (be they bi, transgender, lesbian, etc.). They strive for an open, welcoming environment for discussions, speed dating, movie nights and more.

        Comments from Utopians:

        "Wet On Wellington sauna was busy on the weekend that I was there. Mainly caucasians, but there were also some Asians and other ethnicities. The people are friendly and approachable in general. The crowd is mainly 25s-40s, mostly with relatively fit bodies. I had a good time." -- yinghuantang, Apr 21, 2017
