Is there something you’ve always wanted to teach? Or something you would love to learn more about? Please suggest it for a workshop! In the past, we have had activities including workshops on topics such as LGBT-related issues, alternative media, astrology and dream interpretation; arts and crafts including self-portrait painting, mask-making, and hanko-carving; team sports such as softball, soccer and hugby (yes you read that right!); other movement-based classes including yoga, walking meditation, hip-hop dance and belly dancing; musical and theatrical performances, cooking lessons, sex-related workshops on dildos, S&M and safe-sex practices; relaxing river BBQs, and much more.

This year, we are thinking about more yoga, Mexican cooking, and workshops on topics including trans* issues and language. Now we need *your* ideas! When you register for the weekend, please let us know what types of workshops and activities you would like to see…and whether you are willing to organize it!

Introduction to Improv Workshop, 2013


Herstory The Women’s International Group first gathered lesbian, bi and trans women for a weekend of politics and advocacy in 1985 for a Dyke Weekend (DWE). The gatherings grew to 3 to 4 weekends, and over time, DWE became a rite of passage for all lesbian, bi and trans women in Japan. Today, DWE is still active in bringing together queer women for weekends, which have grown to include workshops, seminars, guest speakers, sports and the much anticipated BBQ. DWE is a safe and encouraging space for women to explore, relax, contribute and catch up with the queer community. DWE is an entirely volunteer run group of women interested in keeping queer women connected in Japan and keeping the queer community in Japan connected to the queer dialogue. All ideas and support are welcome and necessary to keep the DWE epic! Keep in touch!
