What we're about

1) The purpose of this group is to provide a forum for single gay men who may or may not fit into the traditional stereotype of gay culture to find a place of meaningful connection and camaraderie with other open-minded men.

2) Gay men who are interested in going beyond the superficialities of traditional gay culture. This group will serve those who for one reason or another may have felt marginalized or isolated and give them the space to be the person that they are without having to check the boxes that were pre-selected for them. I'm particularly interested in reaching gay men of color, but the group is not restricted to men of color only.

3) I'm particularly interested in having in-depth discussions with the aim of provoking thought, debate, and even more questions. I also like discovering new venues with an eclectic vibe. Discussion topics will be based on films, articles, podcasts, or other performance pieces meant to generate conversation. The hope is that we can get to know each other in a deeper way while also getting to explore fun venues in the city.
