Dear Salon member,

You have indicated your interest in meeting other intellectually oriented gay men for spirited and intelligent discussion of current issues in the world, history, philosophy, politics, social trends, pop culture, etc.  A few of us met recently to plan a series of meetups.  We generated some topics to put things into motion and hope you'll suggest additional topics.

Starting in September, the group will meet on the first Wednesday of the month.  We planned dates and tentative topics for the next three meetings and will plan further with the help of those who attend.  Below is a preview of the next three meetings.  In a about a week, we will send out a formal meetup invitation for the first meeting.

Please plan to attend and do tell friends.
