Are you a bright, articulate LGBTQ professional who enjoys intellectual stimulation, the arts, and/or outdoors? In this friendship group we visit museums, meet for book club, hike, attend the ballet, swim, see live performances, etc. in a smoke-free, drug-free, mostly alcohol-free environment.

This group is designed for people with these characteristics:

  • Professionals (social workers, teachers, physicians, ballet instructors, engineers, retired, student, etc.)
  • Bachelor's Degree or higher (or worked your way up into a professional career)
  • Monogamous/Respectful of your relationship and other people's relationships
  • Please be a gay man, lesbian, bisexual person, asexual person, transgender person, genderqueer person, or intersexed person who would like to build a welcoming community for each of the aforementioned people.
  • Smoke-free and drug-free. Not a heavy drinker/partier.
  • 21+ years of age
  • Live in or around the Austin area

LGBTQ couples and singles are welcome.

This is NOT a pick up joint.  This group is designed to build a core community of members with similar interests.  The group is designed to be platonic; however, if two people get to know each other as friends over time and something develops into a relationship, then that is fine.  Occasionally, the group might have singles events for people seeking life partners.  Just don't use this group as a pick-up joint because you will be deleted if you cause drama.

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.
