100% Sign Up Rule

When you sign up for an event it means that you are 100% sure that you can make it. RSVPING does not mean that you "LIKE" an event but you will be showing up. This means that you have not signed up for any other Meetups the same day and that you can make it (you will be in the city). It also means that if you are working that same day you will not be held up at work or asked to stay later. If you also UNRSVP 24hrs before the event you will also earn a NO SHOW.

Call Me Kuchu


Uganda, a country where over 40 per cent of its citizens are Roman Catholic, has become ground zero in an American evangelical war on the “homosexual agenda.” Enter David Kato, a veteran activist who’s been working tirelessly to repeal his country’s homophobic laws and liberate his fellow gay and transgendered citizens—called “kuchus”—from persecution. Kato’s mission is intensified when a new anti-homosexuality bill proposing death for HIV-positive gay men is introduced. Meanwhile, the country’s newspapers are outing kuchus under headlines such as “HOMO TERROR! We Name and Shame Top Gays in the City.” Kato is one of the few to publicly denounce these actions, insisting “if we keep on hiding, they will say we are not here.” Call Me Kuchu documents the courageous efforts of Kato and his team to overcome seemingly insurmountable obstacles. The result is both a hard-won victory and a devastating loss for the international gay community. Shannon Abel, Hot Docs

    Hey Matthew, the movie looks good. I've seen "And God loves Uganda" which I guess is a kind of sequel. Will the group be having a discussion after the movie over coffee perhaps?

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
