Are you new to Seattle? Do you fall somewhere on the LGBTQIA... spectrum? Are you looking to build and establish new friendships, socialize, and explore this wonderful city? Then check out the Emerald City Queer Transplants. What better way to start than by congregating with people who are in similar situations? This group is open to anyone who identifies as other than straight; straight allies are always welcomed. Feel free to join the group even if you are not new to Seattle, but looking to expand your social circle. This group is designed to build unity and therefore activities will be open to all people. We will not have group outings for "only gay men" or "only lesbians", there are plenty of other groups to join for activities like that. The more time, fun and sincerity members put into this group, the stronger it will become! This group is open to all kinds of social activities: coffee, dining, movies, museums, shows, picnics to exploring the different neighborhoods in Seattle, parks, landmark attractions and etc. If you want to melt the "Seattle Freeze," start meeting people, going out and having fun while building friendships with other newcomers like yourself, join the Emerald City Transplants. You won't meet anyone by staying home and surfing the web. See you soon!

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
