Our mission is to make it easier for queer women to find community & build meaningful connections.
After years of building and managing local online communities for queer women in the Eastern U.S., Laura (co-founder of The LO.) had always wanted to scale the positive impact she had witnessed across the communities she ran to a national (& global) level. When she and Jessica moved to Atlanta and found themselves faced with a lack of spaces and community for queer women again–especially as a couple in their thirties — they decided to take that leap. In 2020, combining Laura’s community management experience with Jessica’s background in social impact, they began building The LO. — to make finding and connecting with the queer womens’ community as easy as it should be in the midst of a technological revolution. Because they believe that a connected community is an empowered community.
