Grove Girls | 59 min

From volleyball on the beach to emergency drills at the Fire House, hosting dinner parties or Community Association Board meetings- for decades gay women have been flocking to Cherry Grove to experience the natural beauty and establish a strong community of activism and equality.

GROVE GIRLS explores the female history of this "homo-haven". With interviews from Grovers and archival imagery, we are taken through the trials and triumphs of the women who were finding themselves, discovering their sexuality and building a strong community of freedom and expression since the 1940's.
