The Boston Gay Professionals Meetup Group Pages


Meet other local gay professionals and business people. Make new contacts. Find new clients and customers. And make new friends! :oD

Get ready for Meaningful Networking!™

We're a friendly and outgoing group of people of all ages and from all walks of life, occupations, and backgrounds. Our events are relaxed and have no attitude. Many have remarked that we are the "un-Club Cafe." In other words, people will be happy to look you in the eye, walk over, and talk to you! ;o)

We typically hold 2 networking/social events per month around Boston--usually on the third or fourth Tuesday of each month and on a Wednesday which "floats" around--sometimes more if there's a special event planned. Attendance ranges from 65 to about 90 people (and we limit attendance to that, which makes the events more enjoyable for everyone). Come join us and make some new friends and professional contacts!

The only thing we ask is that if you RSVP that you're attending, please be sure to attend. If your plans change and you can't go, kindly update your RSVP. Our events sometimes generate waiting lists, so if you RSVP that you're going but then don't show, you're taking a spot away from someone who really wants to be there. We simply ask that you be considerate of other members. And the places where we hold events reserve space for us and often hire extra staff, so it's important to know how many people are actually attending.

There is a $9.00 fee to attend the Tuesday or Wednesday networking events (although we have reduced-price and free events too every so often). However, if you're new to the group and have never been to an event before, YOUR FIRST EVENT IS FREE so you can check us out. You'll need to e-mail the organizer (Dan) separately though, so he can put your name on the RSVP list (as the Meetup system will not let you RSVP without paying).

Also, please do NOT announce our events on social media like Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn etc. Feel free to talk about the group there, but we prefer that interested people actually join first given that attendance at the events is limited (and admittance at the door is not always possible).

Keep in mind that this is a NETWORKING group. By definition, people who come to our events are looking to meet other people and not stand around and simply "be seen." (Again, this is not Club Cafe!) While the organizers and hosts do their best to facilitate introductions and to engage others, you're expected to go over and say "hi" to people--and vice versa. That's why people are there. If you do, we promise that you won't burst into flames . . . and that you WILL meet some nice, friendly, and approachable folks! ;o) It only takes a minimal amount of effort on your part to meet some great people and do some really Meaningful Networking.™

The group continues to grow through Meetup and by word-of-mouth, which is a large part of why we've been so successful and why people enjoy our events. Contrary to popular belief, there really are friendly and welcoming gay venues in Boston!

Thanx for taking the time to read about us. We hope you join and look forward to seeing you soon! :o)
