Who doesn’t love a holiday movie? We enjoy seeing people find love and holiday spirit beside a sparkling fire at a snowy chalet or the family home. And we at Lavender Friends especially appreciate it when the movies feature LGBTQ characters in their movies.
Recently, it’s been possible to find several such movies. On Netflix, there’s “Single All the Way.” On Hulu, you can watch “The Happiest Season” and Lifetime’s “Under the Christmas Tree.” There are several others you can search for across the spectrum of channels and streaming platforms. So, whip up some hot chocolate and invite your friends and family over for some holiday cheer, LGBTQ style.
Lavender Friends is preparing to end the year the same it has done for 15 years now — our annual holiday dinner dance. In 2024, we are looking forward to a new year full of activities planned by ACE, the nickname for our activities committee. ACE will get some help in January at our biannual business meeting, which will include an “idea fest,” complete with gifts for those who come bearing suggestions for outings and activities (club members: watch for details in your weekly emails).
Lavender Friends is a club for LGBTQ residents and their supporters in this community. Happy holidays from our club to each of you.
The Lavender Friends Club is a group of lesbians, gays, bisexuals, transgender and those in friendship who reside in beautiful Sun City Lincoln Hills, California.
Our primary goal is to create, and sponsor social gatherings and events that will appeal to the broad base of our members who enjoy getting together with others and sharing quality time and their experiences. Equally important is our goal of supporting one another and offering service to our community.
We believe that strong communities begin with solid relationships and our primary purpose is to build a greater sense of community through social interaction, open communication and shared information.
