Firstly can I say that the objective of this group is not a matchmaking/dating group so singles and couples are all welcome. It is intended to be a complement to the Gay scene in Dublin, sometimes we use gay venues and sometimes we don't depending on each type of meetup.
We arrange meetups for gay men & women that either are new to Dublin, have been here for some time or a homegrown local. Even if English is not your native language don't worry this IS for you too ! Check out the past meetups to see what we have been doing since we started the group. There are cinema evenings, dinning out evenings, theatre and cabaret evenings as well a all day long outside of Dublin. If you have interests that you think might make for a good meetup, whether it's hobbies, foreign language conversation groups, sports or just meeting up for music and dance make a suggestion on the discussion board and see who like your idea. If there's an interest I'll help you set up a meetup for that idea.
It is a chance to make new friends and discover Dublin/Ireland at the same time.
p.s. To state the obvious: Not everybody is open about their private lives so I would ask that we all respect each other's anonymity until invited to do otherwise. Especially if you meet fellow DIGS members in other meetup groups or elsewhere . This includes mentioning who is or isn't in the group to other groups' members and friends or sending greetings on other groups' home pages which are public (please use the email facility if not sure) This hasn't happened and I hope won't but I would just like to make sure EVERYBODY feels comfortable particularly when signing up to the group.
