Being gay in modern society is not the social issue it used to be, at least not on the surface... An important issue is finding a group of people with the same orientation and feeling safe and relaxed to make new friends. The next issue is to find an appropriate venue. Such a place is seriously absent in Cambridge and the surrounding areas, with the exception of clubs and some other isolated venues only catering for the gay population at specific infrequent dates. The purpose of this group is to create an easy-going climate, where people can make new friends and form a local community and pursue social activities together. Working through Meetup this allows the scheduling of events to be as frequent as the group would wish them to be without any central organisation requirements, e.g. committees etc.
