It is possibly one of the longest-running lesbian social clubs in the world and Feathers Gold Coast is about to mark 25 years.  The Gold Coast has just launched the new gay and lesbian event, Glitter Festival, but the city has long been a hub of same-sex acceptance.  For almost a quarter of a century, Feathers Lesbian Women's Social Club has offered local ladies a welcoming community.  Club president Jan Curtis has told ABC Gold Coast's Bern Young that it could be the most long-lived group of its kind.  "We have researched it a bit, we are one of the longest ones in the world," she said.  It started in the early 1990s at a small gatherings where Jan and friends were discussing the lack of local clubs for gay women. "One of the ladies suggested a club and we all jumped aboard and started it all off," Jan said.  This year marks the group's 25th anniversary.  The not-for-profit club now hosts regular social events such as dances, luncheons and catch ups.

 

A voice for lesbians on the Gold Coast

Membership numbers have grown over the year as the club has become an established voice for lesbians in the community.  "I'd say the number... could be [around] 300 lesbian women on the coast" Jan said.  "Politically it's been very quiet; we're just starting to get the LGBTI community united a bit."  The upcoming inaugural Glitter Festival will be a celebration of local LGBTI culture and Jan is looking forward to it.  "It's going to be a very interesting and hectic program by what I can see of it," she said. 

The Gold Coast Glitter Festival begins September 28
