What we're about

About Us:
Originally starting off as a small MeetUp group known as the Miami's Gay 20-Somethings, the idea came about when young adult groups started becoming relatively popular in other parts of the country.

These new groups were critical in providing an awesome experience for the LGBTQ community in a way to interact with other people in their age bracket that didn't involve the nightclub/bar life scene. Noting that Miami didn't have anything like this at the time specifically for this target audience, a group was set up to address that need.

What had once been just a small collaboration of 20-something year olds on MeetUp, led to becoming an extensive Facebook group of over 800 members, to now serving all age groups as a newly-recognized 501c7 non-profit organization consisting of a board, leadership council, and two chapters. Welcome to the Gay Vista Social Club!

Motto:
"Building Friendships Throughout South Florida"

Mission Statement:
-The Gay Vista Social Club (GVSC) builds friendships throughout South Florida.

Vision:
-To succeed in establishing a social environment through programming and service built on the premise of promoting an inclusive, empowered, and respectful brotherhood.
