What we're about

Discovery Community, Inc. is an all volunteer group of self-identified queer men. It was founded in 1987 in response to the AIDS crisis, and was later incorporated as a non-profit 501(c)3 organization. The mission of our community is to provide itself with ongoing opportunities for social connection, personal growth, and community development to develop long lasting relationships that support ourselves through various personal and societal changes over time.

We help each other organize a variety of monthly social activities and events to share and enjoy the experience of either personal and/or group interests and talents. We also organize some weekend retreats in non urban areas around the Bay Area to experience the uniqueness of living in our community while we explore and celebrate our life challenges and successes, as we adapt to personal and societal changes over time. Our activities are open to all self-identified queer men who are either familiar or new to Discovery. We support each other by volunteering either to plan an activity or event, actively participate as a leader on our Board of Directors, or simply donate any amount of either time, effort or money, at any time, to sustain the general well being of our Discovery Community over time.

Book Discussion: "Funny Boy: A Novel," by Shyam Selvadurai

Private Residence

From Booklist: “Although this falls into the crowded coming-of-age category, Selvadurai adds the foreign, funny, and unusual in a novel that is as personal as it is political. While growing up in Sri Lanka amid Tamil and Sinhalese conflicts, Arjie, a young boy who likes to play with dolls and girls, observes the social constraints abhorred and perpetuated within his own family and in society at large. … Selvadurai, much like E. M. Forster, reveals truths subtly, with poignancy and grace …” This is a casual gathering of gay men on the second Sunday of the month: we have fun and stimulating discussions about quality gay literature while sharing a potluck meal. Books are selected by participants several months in advance, and the only requirements for attending are to RSVP, to bring food and/or a beverage to share, and to have read a substantial part of what’s being discussed. If you're coming, please add a "comment" on this page saying what you'll be bringing for the potluck so we're less likely to end up with only one type of food. The potluck's not a cooking competition, and store-bought food is fine! Gather at 6:00 for potluck; discussion begins at 6:45 and ends by 8:30. **** Note to all Discovery Community members: Want to host an event? Please fill out this google form with all the pertinent info and submit to the event committee, or one of the Meetup organizers. https://docs.google.com/document/d/1PirJszAEoQFI-K_8yVtQYYc7uQ8ts6fwZrCOLKJ3Y2Q/edit?usp=sharing
