In 1988 it became an autonomous section within the association ŠKUC (The Students' Cultural Centre, which is one of the leading organisations for the promotion of non-profit artistic activity in Slovenia, formed in 1972). At the end of the eighties, lesbian activism is a constituent part of the new social, civil-rights movements and alternative culture, oriented toward the establishment of modern political culture and civil society: on the one hand it articulates political demands and on the other it socializes forms of lesbian culture, gatherings and alternative thinking. This period is noted for intensive networking and making ties with related groups at the international and regional level, as well as breaking through into the media sphere, organizing social and discussion evenings and art events (Lesbian Film Week in 1988 in ŠKUC-Gallery in Ljubljana).
In the first half of the 90's the lesbian section ŠKUC-LL, which together with gay-men group Magnus establishes the political association Roza klub, is a cofounder of various cultural and social projects: it launches the film festival, which grew into the annual Days of Lesbian and Gay Film in Ljubljana; it assists in establishing the gay & lesbian magazine Revolver and legendary Sunday disco nights Roza disko in club K4; it is a cofounder of LGBT info and help line GALfon.
