I learned the sad news a couple of days ago that Women Together attendee Nancy Unwin has passed. Nancy moved to Fox Run a number of years ago and has not been an active WT participant for some time.
Nancy found her way to the LGBT community later in life and dove right in! She started a group called OUTSkirts in 2001. That potluck/discussion group was modeled on Women Together, with outreach aimed at the older adult lesbian community, especially those like Nancy who had not been part of the LGBT community in their younger days. Nancy & Paula Knight met with Affirmations and as a result, OUTSkirts was affiliated with Affirmations. OUTSkirts met on Sunday afternoons for a potluck and discussion. The group lasted 10 years and eventually when Nancy retired, was merged into Women Together.
Nancy also started a group called Women OUT & About (WOA), which was a group oriented toward social activities for lesbians. Through WOA, Nancy and others sponsored picnics, dances, and other social activities. WOA was turned over to Linda Brincat and is included in her GOAL activities to this day.
