Under the current administration, it is more important than ever, that those of us in the LGBTQIA community and our straight allies, stick together and support each other.
Since we pay taxes too, we shouldn't have to worry about losing our jobs, housing, basic human rights, lives, being discriminated against, etc, based on how we were born.
However, we also need the chance to be able to relax and have some fun with each other, since the world is such a stressful place right now.
So, let's get together for various activities in Lake County, and occasionally surrounding counties. This is not a singles group, but if you happen to meet the love of your life, we won't stand in the way.
Please remember to treat each other (and your organizer) with the same respect and kindness you'd like to be treated with. Trolls or harassers will be reported to Meetup and removed.
This group is also open to LGBTQ allies, whether you have a family member who is someone in our community, or a friend, etc; or if you consider yourself an LGBTQ ally in other ways.
I wanted a group for us farther north, since the majority of LGBTQ, etc, groups seem to be in the city or south of Lake County. I have a disabled brother at home, and occasional issues with my asthma, so I can't be driving down to the city all the time for LGBTQ groups and events. I need to keep events I schedule a little closer to home.
However, members are more than welcome to schedule meetups for our group as well. Just shoot me a message, and I will make you an event host. You can schedule your meetups in any location you like. That includes LGBTQ rallies, or more "political" type meetups. I am ok with those too.
If you have any questions, don't hesitate to shoot me a private message, or post a question in our discussion thread.
