*8/29/21 UPDATE: I remain mindful of keeping everyone as safe as possible and am staying on top of news and updates from local and CDC officials. With the current state of affairs locally, we'll continue to lay low, and I’ll resume scheduling activities just as soon as I feel it's safe to do so. I’ll certainly try to schedule outdoor events as weather permits. This is not an easy decision nor one I take lightly, but I feel it's the most loving, ethical decision possible for our members and for healthcare workers. Rest assured, we ARE an active group, but for the time being, I cannot in good conscience put folks at risk. Take care, stay safe, and know that I cannot wait to see you. ______________________ Hi, y'all! I'm Marisa, and I stepped in as organizer in June 2018.
This is a wholesome, family-friendly group (i.e. NOT a place for hookups) geared toward ALL in the LGBTQ+ community (cis, trans, male, female, non-binary, gender queer, etc.). We warmly welcome singles and couples alike and do open our arms to allies.
I believe in creating a safe, welcoming space for anyone who wants to get acclimated to the area, find friends with whom to enjoy social activities, and make lasting connections. I make every effort to schedule a variety of social events and outdoor activities, both paid and free, and while this is a secular group, there will be faith-based events posted from time to time.
**Please understand that membership is strictly limited to those 21 years of age and older.** (Our current membership age range skews 30+). Children & teens are welcome to accompany an adult parent/guardian/sibling group member at appropriate events.
Thanks for checking out the group - I look forward to seeing you soon!
