Moon Parties

In the late seventies, Orlando area lesbians wanted a space for their own as the Orlando bar scene remained a man's world and many females, (gay or straight) did not feel welcome there. The moon parties were started by a small group of women (womyn at the time) who had been publishing a newsletter called "Changes," that featured poetry, advertising, and articles about women's issues.  The Orlando moon parties were simple social gatherings held in a home or backyard setting. About 50 women typically attended the gatherings that occured on or near a full moon.
