What we're about

The group was founded in early 2015 to bring together LGBT people who wanted to make new friends - and it has done just that!
Renamed as Rainbow Connections in April 2022, we hold a monthly coffee afternoon in central Birmingham, regular nights out in the gay village, and a variety of other smaller scale meetups hosted by group members, which include walks and the chance to connect with others to attend a football match. If you want to organise an event yourself, we'd love to hear from you.

We also urge other community groups to contact us, so that they can use this meetup page to advertise their events too. So you'll find groups like Swifts, the LGBT+ running group and Boot Women the walking group advertising on to he Rainbow Connections page too.

To host a meetup group, (ie Birmingham LGBT Meetup, the whole group) costs just under £200 per year, in a fee to meetup.com, which has been paid for some time by one individual from their own pocket. The six monthly fees are due in February and August. No-one hosting events will be charged, but I've asked each event organiser to do one collection a year.
