LIFE IS AN ECHO. What you send out – comes back. What you sow – you reap. What you give – you get. What you see in others – exists in you. Do not judge – so you will NOT be judged. Radiate and give LOVE – and Love comes back to you. ~ Zig Ziglar

It's not happy people who are thankful, it is thankful people who are happy. ~ Unknown


Our philosophy is simple ... be positive, inclusive, supportive and really enjoy the moments and memories we are building together.

Life is too short NOT to meet new people, make new friends, do something different, scream at the top of your lungs for no reason, commit random acts of kindness just for a smile and REALLY enjoy all that you do. In our group, you will meet and make new friends; you may eat a type of food you have never even heard of before; you could spend a day hiking in the beautiful wooded countryside (or maybe even do that same hike at night under a full moon); you can learn more about the New York Tri-State area through a tour or two; you will feel good about yourself when you help others at our volunteer events; you might learn to meditate, do yoga or tai chi; you can even face your fears with your new friends on exciting, adrenaline pumping adventures.

We are a group of open-minded, fun, positive, friendly, respectful, and supportive people who come from all walks of life.  No matter what your background, we want to meet you.  We want you to meet each other. We all have value as human beings, so let’s share that value with one another. The more diverse our group is, the more fun we will all have!!

So, read the rest, check out and agree to the Legal Disclaimer and Policies, and then join us to make new, lasting friendships and live LIFE OUT LOUD!

Who Are The Organizers:

There is no one organizer of LOL.  The group is run as a committee.  The LOL Organizers are friends that know, care about, and trust each other. We all endeavor to welcome you with open arms and come to know and care about YOU as much as we do for one another.  All the organizers and hosts have a shared vision for this group and share a desire to make new friends and provide an awesome time for everyone that comes to the events.   But, we all maintain that the strength of the group is YOU, the members!!

Our Events:

We do events throughout the five boroughs of New York City and beyond.  Our events range from a simple walk in the park, to flying through a canopy of trees on a zipline, to trying out new cuisines, to walking through the streets as a zombie and much more.  We may even spend an entire weekend away, either hiking/camping or going on a getaway.  The events will range in the number of attendees allowed, dependent upon what type of event.  If the event will involve alcoholic beverages, you must be 21 or older to RSVP to that event.

Don't worry about coming out alone, that's what most of us have done and do ... we'll make sure that you feel welcome, have fun and hopefully go home having had a memorable time. You can get started by browsing our Past Events and checking Our Calendar for upcoming events.
