Mummolaakso - A Moominvalley for older lesbians and bisexual women

Mummolaakso (Granny valley) is a non-profit association that works to promote solidarity, social interaction and well-being especially among older lesbians and bisexual women in Finland. The name Mummolaakso is inspired by Muumilaakso (Moominvalley), the home of fantastical yet very human Moomin creatures invented by the Finnish author and lesbian icon Tove Jansson.

The organization is based in Helsinki but offers support to local initiatives nationwide. We cooperate with the Turku-based association Turun Seudun Mummolaakso and the Mummolaakso peer group operating in Tampere. Mummolaakso is a member of the national LGBTI rights organization SETA and the Feminist Association Unioni.

Meeting like-minded lezzies, staying active, and ageing with pride

Since its foundation in 1994 Mummolaakso has sought to make life more enjoyable for lesbians and bisexual women in all periods of life, including old age. We arrange regular dances, visits to cultural events, outdoor recreation, weekend trips, discussions, reading circles and other events. Although Mummolaakso caters to the tastes of middle-aged and older women, many of the activities are equally of interest to younger dykes and queers. All activities are run on a volunteer basis. Mummolaakso cooperates with SETA's work involving lgbtiq seniors.

We encourage visitors, new-Finns, foreign residents and others interested in the Helsinki lesbian scene to check out coming events on our calendar. Listed below are those where knowledge of Finnish language is not important, more things to do on the Finnish pages.
