MEEM, a new LBTQ group
Meem is a community of and for LBTQ women in Lebanon.
Meem is a community of and for LBTQ women in Lebanon.

LBTQ is defined as women who self-identify as lesbian, bisexual, transgender (including male-to-female and female-to-male), queer, in addition to women questioning their sexual orientation.

We believe in diversity. Meem is based on values of equality, support, confidentiality, and respect.

The group was created on the idea that women should be encouraged to empower themselves and each other through mutual support.

We are a closed, private group, not out of fear, but because we work hard on guarding the safety and security of our members. We believe in empowerment through self-organizing.

Our goal is to create a safe space in Lebanon where LBTQs can meet, talk, discuss issues, share experiences, and work on improving their lives and themselves.

In a nutshell, Meem is a group of really cool women who look out for each other and work on making Lebanon a better home for LBTQs.
