Rhode Island Women's Association

RIWA-Serving lesbian women of RI, SE/Mass. and CT.

 Join us for our 2019 Season Preview Dance















We have a new venue and will be hosting the Lesbian Lounge at the newly renovated Nelson. We will have our new house DJ Karen bringing everyone up on their feet to ring in the New Year.

Come check out our new space, this event is free to all who are considering membership for the coming season. We will be hosting 6 additional events at the Nelson so come on out and see what you think. The space is eclectic and intimate. There is a full cash bar, dance floor, seating, parking, private entrance for the facilities and an all new menu. Food can be ordered at the bar and served in our private space.

The Nelson is located in the Lang's Bowlarama complex, the space is completely private so you will not be entering through the bowling alley. The entrance to the Lesbian Lounge will be to the left of the main entrance doors. We are excited and feel the space will be perfect for gathering with friends, do a little dancing, have a bite to eat and sit and chat between dances. Looking forward to a great season and looking forward to seeing you there.

Membership forms are available online at link below or at the door on the 26th. Wishing you all a safe and Happy New Year! Check out some pics of the new space here: https://thenelsoneventcenter.wordpress.com/
