Lesbian parties differ from all other parties. At such parties, you can meet great people who belong to the LGTBQ+ community, make friends, find a one-night stand, and even find the love of your life.
Have you ever attended lesbian festivals? Have you felt that special vibe of such events? We highly encourage you to visit a lesbian party in the coming months and enjoy a brand new experience.
A lesbian party is a safe space for queer women, trans, and non-binary people. Here you can be yourself while enjoying good company and exploring your sexuality. Participation in these parties is a great way for you to gain new experiences and embrace the different sides of your personality.
Another great thing about such events is that most of them exist to support a greater cause. Typically they are organized to raise money to help queers through scholarships, grants, and initiatives.
Americans are one of the best party makers in the world. They know how to create a big show and make people love it. So it's not a surprise that the vast majority of the best global lesbian events take place in the US. Here is a list of the top parties that are worth your attention.
Have you ever heard about the Club Skirts Dinah Shore Weekend? It's one of the largest events for lesbians not only in the US but in the whole world. Gay people come to this place to enjoy comedy shows and concerts, have fun at the noisy pool parties, meet the celebrities that they have a crush on, and participate in other fun activities.
If you like to be in the crowd and dance all day and night, you will love this party. Come to California, and spend five fantastic days with queer people like you.

Hanging @CapeCodMall food court while car being serviced...Lesbian teen couples outnumbered all others 3 to 1. I take #Provincetown for granted and with the world right now, seeing 2 😊 girls holding hands was just good 🏳️🌈.— Felicia Wichrowski (@Felicia02652) March 21, 2022

People who are questioning their sexual orientation and haven't come out yet may doubt whether they are ready to attend a three-days lesbian festival. So if you hesitate to join such events, that's totally fine.
Here is a tip for you. Before you go to a "big party", spend a night at a local lesbian bar. If you like the atmosphere and feel comfortable being surrounded by queer and trans individuals, that's a positive sign.
Lesbian events are supposed to be a safe place. But still, you should take care of your personal safety and follow some basic rules:
Consume alcohol responsibly. You can drink some cocktails to make the night brighter, but please, avoid binge drinking. Otherwise, you will have no memories of the party.
Avoid dehydration. When you stay under the sun, drink plenty of water to cool down and reduce the effect of alcohol on your body.
Practice safer sex. Of course, you can make out with any random person you meet. Just don't forget to use condoms when having penetrative sex (yep, if you use sex toys, condoms are a must).
Have a buddy system. It's always a good idea to have someone to look out for you just in case.
Now you are all set. It's time to choose a party from the list and plan a travel itinerary!
