If you're more of an introvert, and also identify as LGBT, then maybe this is the group for you.

For those of us who are introverts/loners and/or "live inside" our heads, making new friends can be more of a challenge since even the chattier types of us tend to be more quiet overall in new social situations. We don't mind awkward silences and tend to "observe" others for awhile first before joining in.

Or, we don't fit into the typical "extrovert" social cliques because the idea of meeting others at bars, clubs, or the usual social groups, makes us cringe when we'd rather go to a bookstore, museum, theater, park, library, (our own computers) or other "low key" areas/activities. Our nervous systems get easily overstimulated so we need some "space" from too much of it sometimes.

Please keep in mind...

**This type of group is going to work best for those who have more flexible schedules, especially on the weekends since meetup dates or details may get adjusted from time to time.**

This is not a singles group. This is a laid back activity group meant for folks to get together in a safe and non-threatening environment. However, we're all adults and if you happen to click with someone at one of our meetups, we won't stand in the way.

Please make sure pictures are "appropriate".

This is a private group, so only other members will be able to see what you post after you become a member.

Members can host and post their own meetup ideas on our calendar as well.

Any questions, don't hesitate to contact the organizer(s).

Please note, that Meetup charges organizers a fee to run our groups, but most of us do not pass that cost onto our members so you usually get to join our groups for free. It's a reasonable fee, but since we are paying for our groups, we get to set the basic rules for our groups. If you do not care for the rules we set for our groups, then find another group, or start your own. Meetup allows organizers to run up to three groups under the fee they charge, which is a pretty good deal.
