Who We Are

The OWLS organization was established back in the early 1980's as a welcoming and nurturing community for older lesbians. Today we maintain the vision of our founding members and strive to build an inclusive community of women who value the gift of community.

We offer our members opportunities to serve each other and the community. We serve the Maryland, Virginia, DC, DE, Pennsylvania areas. We are more than a meetup or social group, we are a community!
