If you apply for membership now, you will be automatically denied. Thanks for understanding. 

This is the Bay Area Goth Meetup, where individuals identifying as goth/alternative and dark culture can get together and explore the darker side of fun. Activities include clubs and concerts, movies and shows, game nights and parties, arts and crafts,  fairs and cons, makeup and clothing shopping, and other wondrous adventures.  Take a step out of your mundane reality and come play with us!

NOTE: We require members to pay  $3 dollars a year. This isn't much considering how much time, effort and money we as organizers put into this group and our outings/food/movie nights etc. If this is going to be an issue you may choose not to join. Thank you for understanding.

Here are a few things for our members to remember:

    We want our members to be active, meaning visiting the board every once in a while and also participating and coming to meetups. We put a lot of effort, time and money into these so please at least visit the site or RSVP to a few events in the year. We know things come up however and we try to understand. If there is anything we can do to help you out with something don't hesitate to contact us about meetups, ideas or just to chat!

    We want people who join to put up a real photo profile picture of your face not someone else or a cartoon. We want to be able to spot you at a meetup, as we have had people having trouble finding other members.

    Although we will consider everyone who applies for membership, this group is really more for those who already identify as goth, dark culture, steampunk, etc., or who have just "come out" to themselves as such, rather than for those who are just curious about who/what we are.

    We do not tolerate racism, sexism, homophobia or prejudice of any kind. It's bullshit and it does not belong in this group.

    Lastly, this group is NOT a dating website. If your profile implies that you are using the group for romantic/sexual intentions, your application will be denied. We want our members to feel comfortable, not being subjected to unwarranted hit-ons.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
