LFT Kiel 2017
Welcome to our LesbianSpringMeeting (LFT) from June 2nd – 5th 2017. Our Lesbian gathering will take place in Kiel in Northern Germany and has the motto „Lesbians Ahoi! – Different landing!“
The Lesbian Spring Meeting is the largest national political and cultural event organised by and for lesbian women* with interesting workshops, lectures, films, roundtables, good food, relaxation, networking and party. The LFT is held every year on Whit weekend in a different city with a different theme instead and is accessible.
Already in the 1920s, lesbians met in Berlin to a common Whit walk, what after the seizure of power by the National Socialists 1933 was no longer possible. Only 1972 a lesbian Pentecostal meeting was again held in Berlin, since 1979 a different city is selected for each year. Thousands of women from Germany and abroad countries annually participated since 1972 in the meetings. In Kiel for the 44th Lesbian Spring Meeting we expect to host between 600 up to 1.000 lesbian women*.
There will be 3 days of political discussion, arts, dance, workshops, music, (arts and crafts) market, tasty vegetarian and vegan food … and fun. Here you can socialize, educate yourself, get to know yourself better – with much joy and fun.
We will get great rooms during the days from the Muthesius University of Fine Arts and Design (Muthesius Kunsthochschule) and expect you at the Legienstrasse 35 in 24105 Kiel. The evening events will be held at DIE PUMPE, Hassstraße 22, 24103 Kiel.
Main language is German, but English interpretation may be available if needed.
The LFT is highly accessible: All areas are suitable for wheel-chair, a lot of workshops and even music performances will be signed.
Admission price is self calculated by each participant and includes food and drink in all areas (only exception: Pumpe during the evening events). If 600 lesbians attended the meeting and each one paid an average of 80 Euros our costs would be covered. Decide for yourself, if you can contribute more or if you need to pay less – we trust your decision.
Housing is in each participants own responsibility and here we make several suggestions like Youth Hostel, Camping or Gym sleeping.
