The purpose of this group is to enhance social opportunities for gay  men twenty-one and over.  If you scan our activities over the past year and a half you will discover that it is the most active gay Meet-up group in New Mexico.  Our focus is exclusively on gay men, and I encourage disabled members of our community to participate, whether your disability be related to hearing, vision, mobility, or anything else. My intention is to include activities that are Inside; Outside, and About The Albuquerque region. Albuquerque already has three vibrant outdoors groups and a number of private social groups that are word of mouth, or,  by invitation only, but In, Out & About is open to all gay men whether you are new to the community, a visitor, or a long term resident. It is a comfortable way  to meet and socialize without experiencing that intimidating self-consciousness often associated with bars or interacting on internet dating sites.

The goal of In, Out & About is to straddle the outdoors and the indoors, and to offer activities that reflect "out of the box" thinking. You'll find hiking in the wilderness, but you'll also find  full-moon walks along the Bosque. You'll  find Jazz and classical music performances as well as plays and movies. You'll find pot-lucks and fancy "theme" dinners; get-away weekend in a log cabin;  intimate discussion groups as well as  "silent-sittings" designed for reflection or contemplation. You might  come across a lecture on Sex and Intimacy, or, an author commenting on his gay theme book  You will find socially conscious meet ups focusing on  LGBT youth and the homeless.  The point of In, Out & About group is to meet and socialize with like minded men. It's not an internet dating site, but you will be able to browse through profiles and connect with our members.   If  this Meet-up is going to be successful for you it will require participation and a willingness  to come-up with- and even host, interesting activities.   If that appeals to you, then welcome.  If not, then I'm just glad that you dropped by to have a look.

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.
