This is a group focused on LGBTQ culture, heritage, social issues, and politics from a Russian and Eastern European perspective. Originally focused on Russian-Speaking LGBTQ individuals, our group welcomes progressive people who identify with and support Russian LGBTQ culture and heritage. We welcome everyone who has ties to Russian (and neighbors) LGBTQ communities to join us. This is the Bay Area branch of RUSA LGBT Meetup group located in New York City and in Boston. Anyone from the Bay area or visiting from another state or another country is welcome to attend.

Let's celebrate our identity and fight for diversity, social justice, human and civil rights for LGBTQ people everywhere we live. Let’s join together in creating a social network and community united by common culture.

Bring along your family, friends and significant others. Let's get together, hang out, share our stories, have fun and create a Russian-and-friends LGBTQ community along the way. We are single, we are couples, we are parents, we have parents, sisters and brothers - we are just like you!

Tell us a few words about yourself. Our approval process is quick and easy. We are very friendly bunch and our meetups are a lot of fun. Go ahead and join us. We hope to meet you soon!

We also invite you to join us on Facebook -

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
