Philadelphia, PA -- (ReleaseWire) -- 05/05/2015 -- Lesbians Who Tech is a monthly meeting of women in the gay community who work or are interested in the technology industry. The community aims to create an effortless channel for lesbians with a love of all things tech to form connections and build networks of colleagues, associates and friends. While Lesbians Who Tech is a global community of more than 8,000 women in and around the tech industry, they have local chapters around the world for professional and recreational techies to meet like-minded individuals near them. Celebrating the establishment of the new Philadelphia Chapter of Lesbians Who Tech, the group is announcing a Happy Hour on Thursday, May 28, 2015.

The group will be bringing tech love to the City of Brotherly Love from 5 to 7 PM (ET), and invites anybody and everybody interested to join them. CJ Bachmann, VP of Operations for 1SEO.com Digital Agency, has been helping to establish the Philadelphia Chapter and will be hosting the event as the chapter's new City Director. She encourages women in and around the Philadelphia region to come and "get geeky with techy folks just like you."

About Lesbians Who Tech (and friends) Philadelphia May Happy Hour
The Lesbians Who Tech (and friends) Philadelphia May Happy Hour event will take place at the Pennsylvania6 (Penn6) restaurant, located at 114 S. 12th Street in Philadelphia, PA, 19107. Named one of the best restaurants in Philadelphia, Penn6 features a post-prohibition style atmosphere that transports guests back to the 1930s. Admission to the Happy Hour Event is free, and the restaurant features unbeatable food and drink specials. Attendees can enjoy a variety of affordable libations as they discuss a topic they love with peers who are as enthusiastic about it as they are.

Of the total number of people in the science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) fields, women account for only 1 in 15. Adjust that number for applicable lesbians, and it drops dramatically. As an under-represented group, women are rarely quoted in mainstream media as experts and are largely unavailable to participate in many of the industry panels. Lesbians Who Tech wants to change this trend and raise awareness of how amazing the industry can be and the vast opportunities it can present. That is why the group encourages lesbians throughout Philadelphia to join their Happy Hour, represent their community and make new friends and connections.

Interested techies can order tickets via the Eventbrite website.
