Building a Community

For over twenty years, Lesbian and Bisexual women in Cork have been providing support services for others in our community and have been active in promoting equality for Lesbian and Bisexual women.

This culminated in the foundation of LINC, an organisation committed to informing and impacting upon social inclusion policy and practice and providing peer support services to all in our community.
