I started this group in January, 2013 and it has developed into one of the more active gay men's group in the Albuquerque/ Santa Fe area. I intend it to cover rural and distant areas of New Mexico as well, so don't be put off by our Albuquerque base. I encourage members to post regional Meet-ups whether that be in Truth or Consequences, Socorro, Pie Town, Gallup or Hobbs. The purpose of this group is to enhance social opportunities for gay men twenty-one and over. The group includes single men; partnered men; ; men who are completely out; and men who are just exploring their same gender attraction. I also encourage participation by gay men with disabilities. If you scan our activities over the past three years you will discover that In, Out & About is the most active gay Meet-up group in New Mexico. . My intention is to include activities that are Inside; Outside, and About The Albuquerque as well as activities in rural New Mexico. Albuquerque already has three vibrant outdoors groups and a number of private social groups that are word of mouth, or, by invitation only, but In, Out & About is open to all gay men whether you are new to the community, a visitor, or a long term resident. It is a comfortable way to meet and socialize without experiencing that intimidating self-consciousness often associated with bars or interacting on internet dating sites.
The goal of In, Out & About is to straddle the outdoors and the indoors, and to offer activities that reflect "out of the box" thinking. You'll find hiking in the wilderness, but you'll also find full-moon walks along the Bosque. You'll find Jazz and classical music performances as well as plays and movies. You'll find pot-lucks and fancy "theme" dinners; get-away weekend in a log cabin; hot springs soaking in Truth or Consequences, sheering at a member's alpaca ranches; intimate discussion groups as well as "silent-sittings" designed for reflection or contemplation. You might come across a lecture on Sex and Intimacy, or, an author commenting on his gay theme book You will find socially conscious meet ups focusing on LGBT youth and the homeless. The point of In, Out & About group is to meet and interact with like minded men. It's not an internet dating site, but you will be able to browse through profiles and connect with our members. If this Meet-up is going to be successful for you it will require participation and a willingness to come-up with- and even host, interesting activities. My only stipulation is that you access our home page and participate in at least one event within a six months time period. If that appeals to you, then welcome. If not, then I'm just glad that you dropped by to have a look.
