What we're about

During the current situation, I am offering Virtual Events almost daily. I publish most (but not every event) in the Meetup and also provide a doc and calendar with every event listed.

DCGAYBUDDIES.COM

This group is for gay/bi men and gay-friendly guys who either work from home, are semi-retired, or fully retired and have time during the day (mostly weekday but open to early evenings and weekend day events too) to socialize with other men in and around the DC metro area.

There are tons of groups geared for people available after work or weekends, but less so when you're wanting to do things with others during the workday. I often try to program events where we pair an event with a meal to allow more social time to interact with other members. We're open to all ages (18+).

Activities include museums, conversation topic events, lunch, music, walks, visual arts, nude social events, day trips, and much more!

If you don't have a face profile pic, please update with one. It helps build a community within the group and put a face with a name when we meet in person.

The focus is on in-person group activities, not virtual connections or one on one meetings outside of group events. While I know that the temptation may be great to contact with guys here (for hook-ups or otherwise), I request you refrain from sending personal messages prior to meeting someone at an event. Of course, once you meet someone at a group event, you two can do whatever you want outside of the group. Any member with a clear face profile pic who has attended at least one event can post a new discussion.

I welcome anyone's interest in hosting an event and this can be leading a group to a venue (doesn't need to be at your place). If you join and then never return to the group online or don't join us at an event within 6 months of joining, I'll assume you don't have weekday free time or interest and may remove you so that we can maintain a group of actively engaged members (you can re-join when you have time).

Once you join, you will receive a welcome email containing survey links which will help me understand your activities & interests and your basic contact info.

Please be mindful of your schedule and intent when you RSVP for an event. No-shows or frequent last-minute cancellations will reduce the quality of our meetup for all. If you learn you can no longer attend after you respond YES, please simply change your response to NO to avoid disappointing others in the group. If you're placed on the waitlist, it means IF a spot opens up, you're ready to join us. So, please remove yourself from the waitlist at any point when it would be too late to attend if you got a last minute notice that a spot opened up -- and please check the platform pre-event to confirm the status. No-shows will be removed from the group.

As I look for new ways for our members to connect (especially in real life via events), I have added another online opportunity via this new "closed" Facebook group @ https://www.facebook.com/groups/dcgaybuddie... (https://www.facebook.com/groups/dcgaybuddies/)

All participants in events agree up front that they accept full responsibility for any injury or loss and will not hold host and organizer responsible in any manner.
