Hey Potential UnSceners,

The  best place to start is here on our public website GayUnScene.com  or you can read through this "About screen".

We welcome the FULL SPECTRUM of the Gay Community including:

★ Straight Allies

★ Lesbian

★ Gay

★ Bisexual

★ Transgender

★ Questioning Sexual Orientation

★ Gender Queer

★ Intersexed

★ Asexual

This group is not for everyone, but it could be for you!  If you read about how our group operates with a inclusive and intimate culture you will most likely adjust to it quickly.  The UnScene culture is a stark difference from the Bar Scene.  We are trying to bridge the gap so people can function in both environments in a healthy way.  Please read through this "About" screen.  I would also like to direct you to our public website that has tons of great information.  

public website gayunscene.com

Thanks for your interest and I hope you can support us in some way.  It's changing moods and lives for the better every week!  You've got ALL my contact information below.  This is NOT a dating service and we are friends with people of all different SHAPES, SIZES, COLORS, and GENDER IDENTITIES.  We do not choose members based on looks EVER! Take a risk apply and come out for an event... we'll be waiting to greet you with a smile and a handshake!

Faithfully Yours,

Cash in on a Better Mood... Get into the Express Lane!

Our mantra is all about "right sizing" events with the best hosts that create a comforting, inclusive, and intimate environment.  This all happens with implementing a "bigger is not better" philosophy.  The words we march, prance, and play to are "15 items or less" (15 people or less).  Hop in the cart to make your way into the "Express Lane to a Better Mood".  People have limited time and want the best experience possible that's why we compare it to the express lane at a grocery store.  There will be waiting lists to events because of limiting the size, BUT we will just host mutiple events in a week.  The possibilities for fun activities in Pittsburgh are infinite.  The positive energy of the "UnSceners" (UnScene Members) is infectious.  You can come stressed by the outside world and leave our events in a better mood!  Sign Up, RSVP for an event EARLY, mark you calendar.... and GET OUT THERE!

The Pittsburgh Gay UnScene Mission

Mission Statement
To unite the Pittsburgh Gay (LGBTQIA) Community inside and outside of the bar scene through showcasing different venues to encourage friendships based on mutual interests that go beyond food or alcohol

To create a social environment that's comforting, inclusive, and intimate through continually doing outreach to the community, hosting multiple events each week, limiting the total number of people admitted to each event, and keeping it platonic.

To provide affordable event admission through limiting cost to less than $20, hosting many free events, and fundraising to offset costs.

To help friends sync up schedules through providing a calendar of events at least one month in advance.


Gay Community = LGBTQIA 

Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Questioning Sexual Orientation, Gender Queer,  Intersexed, Asexual, and Straight Allies.

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.
