This group is a safe and welcoming space for ALL members of the LGBTQA community to come together and socialize. Labels NOT required - everyone is welcome. No discrimination, no judgment; just new friends and old ones having fun. We are still fairly new to SW Florida, so we are VERY open to ideas for fun meetups! Some examples are: rollerskating, biking, walking, visiting area attractions, picnics, beach fun, brunch, dessert/coffee, dancing, dinner, movies, book club, and possible specialized meetups for writers, artists, thespians, or professionals -- whatever people are interested in. There's a lack of LGBTQA-themed gatherings in this area, so hopefully we will fill some of those gaps. :)
Meetups will be family-safe unless specifically noted as adults only (ex: dancing at a niteclub).
PLEASE READ: This is NOT a pickup group. Respectful and inclusive behavior will be expected of everyone, so please play nicely. :)
Anyone can request to join this group. The "A" stands for our straight Allies! Requests will be reviewed by one of the Organizers ASAP. Suggested -- but never mandatory -- membership dues are $6 per year, and serve only to cover the organizer's $20/month fee that must be paid to Meetup.com in order for them to host this group. You may contribute IN PERSON to Vixanne at a Monthly Brunch, OR pay online at Meetup.com.
Please note: Effective 6/25/2014, you MUST have a photo of yourself in order to join! This is purely a safety protocol to ensure that if you attend one of our meetups, we recognize everyone. Thank you for joining us. We hope to see you at an Alphabet Soup meetup soon!
