Our #TEAMTALL community successfully celebrated turning one last weekend and our series of like-heighted social events saw over 100 tall women gathering across 3 continents.
Our partygoers ranged from 20 somethings to 60 somethings, standing at around 5’9 to 6’9 (without heels!) and although we are all connected by height, the diversity we saw at these events was a beautiful thing! I’d like to say a special thank you to all of you who joined in; you made it a positive and energising day to remember… we’ll definitely be doing it all over again next year.
EUROPE : LONDON
“Is anyone else still amazed by the feeling of having been in a room with other tall women? I had a hard time speaking, thinking properly even because it was a kind of systemic shock. The photos have also been so amazing because it’s cool to see your body re-framed. My proportions look different in perspective next to equal and taller women. It was in a small way like becoming a different person”
” Probably like many of you I’ve been told by cultural signals I wasn’t properly feminine. Having an official tall women’s gathering in a place decorated like this sends a signal. And it’s appreciated.”
“I had a fantastic day, meeting new people, a great atmosphere, thanks everyone x”
A special thank you to Marsha for all her support & help organising our London event
NORTH AMERICA : LA & THE DC AREA
“It was so lovely! Thanks for a great afternoon gals and a fabulous party bag… So wonderful to meet such amazing women”
“So excited to celebrate the #teamtall birthday just steps from the beach!”
“It was amazing. I’m sad I didn’t get to talk to more people! My sister and I were on a real high when we left. Home now – and time to investigate the goodies in my gift bag! What a fab load of goodies! Thanks to all who contributed”
AFRICA : SOUTH AFRICA & OUR #TEAMTALL PARTY BAGS
“What a happy time spent yesterday with a special group of long legged gals! We were too busy yapping to remember to take lots of pics, but I did manage to snap a few”
“One physical thing I noticed: I could not stop myself from automatically ducking my head when one of you spoke to me. My body equates female voice with having to bow my head to hear. I kept having to jerk it back up again”
“Absolutely loved meeting fellow tall ladies and sharing stories, can’t wait to do it again soon. And thank you for the amazing gift bag!”
A special thank you to Kristi for organising a fantastic Love Long Length event for all the #teamtall women of South Africa
Since the event, a couple of the #teamtall women have vlogged about their experience at the London event, which gives you a real flavour of what it’s actually like to attend one of our Global Gatherings. Both Sherene and Uche are fairly new to the vlogging scene so we’d also like to encourage you to show your support by subscribing to their channels or liking and commenting on their videos – watch the videos here
