What we're about

ABOUT US:
This is a multifaceted social club. Preferential recruitment is extended to LGBTQ people of any gender, but STR8's may be permitted with a chaperone.¹ Those who are keenly in tune with the humor and cultural milieu of Gay Twitter receive additional consideration. We read voraciously (ask us for great queer YA recommendations),² we love to learn, we play bar trivia and mostly lose, we hang out at the park and other outdoor locations, we like board games, we like meeting new people. And, we're very nice.

ABOUT YOU:
LGBTQ-identifying or straight but nice about it. Probably (but not necessarily) in your 20's in the SF peninsula area. Looking for friends and things to do. Likes good, wholesome fun. Could be convinced to go for a hike maybe.

STRICTLY FORBIDDEN:
- harassment of any kind
- homophobia, transphobia, racism, sexism, derogatory language, or any other behavior that compromises our ability to create a safe and welcoming space for all members

---------------------
The Fine Print

¹You can come if you're straight, you don't actually need a chaperone. It was just a joke. Also, we won't grill anyone about their sexual orientation or gender identity, so you don't have to disclose anything you don't want to share. Let us know your pronouns though.
²You may be wondering, "If you love to read so much, why are you Book Club Dropouts?" It's because we actually read way too fast for the pacing of a normal book club, plus we like hanging out more regularly than a normal book club does. It's kinda like an Anti-Book Club-Book Club. Something like that. Plus we do other stuff. And we got really tired of trying to pick a cooler name.

Upcoming events (4+)

Virtual Queer Sewing Circle

Online event

Please note: We will not have sewing circle next week on Saturday Feb 5th and the following week, sewing circle will be on Feb 13th, which is a Sunday. After that, we'll be back to Saturdays as normal!

Join for crafts, talking about feelings, and bonding. There's no requirement to do crafts, I just wanted to have a standing time for queer community. I'll be online for about 2 hours, so jump in whenever!

Let's do some crafts together ON THE INTERNET! This is not limited to just sewing, I just want to call it a sewing circle. Do whatever craft you want! We've had people sew, knit, crochet, work on things on their computers, color, or just hang out and chat. Do whatever project you're working on or none at all!

Unfortunately I won't be able to share supplies because we'll be remote but even if you're just there to chat and hangout, that's great! Just getting to spend time together while we're all stuck inside is awesome.

Looking for craft supplies and want to support Black owned businesses? Here's a list from Reddit with some fiber art resources: https://www.reddit.com/r/knitting/comments/gvfnee/black_owned_yarn_stores/

Got other Black owned businesses that arts n crafts people should know about? Share in the comments!
