What we're about

This is a social group for all LGBT+ adults and teens in Livingston County and the surrounding Southeast Michigan area. We realized that most people go to other farther out cities for the community, so we wanted to start a meetup group in our area. Events include meet and greet, movies, political discussions, board games, craft days, and anything else that interests people!

This group is meant for everyone-that includes trans*, nonbinary, bisexual folks, and lesser-known orientations or anyone else that is marginalized. Allies are also welcomed to come. This is about having fun, so everyone is welcomed!

Note: Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and for the foreseeable future, our group will be meeting exclusively on Discord. Please look at the events for Discord links.

We are hosting events for Teens (13-19) and Adults. Events will be marked with the age group they are for. Teen events are youth-led. Our Discord server is designed to allow teens and adults to have their own separate spaces with separate content and events.

Please note that Livingston County is located in southeast Michigan in the United States. Livingston and the surrounding area are our focus due to these areas not having strong LGBTQIA+/MOGAI support and resources. People from other areas can still join and are welcome, but please be aware that our information, resources, and supporting institutions are limited to the Southeast Michigan area. We encourage everyone to make connections and community in their local area as well as joining us here.

To join our group:

1) Join meet up group and answer the questions correctly.

2) Join the Discord server with any link in an event. (create an account if needed)

3) Once on the discord server, read the rules posted and make an introduction in the teen or adult sections of the server.

Once we see that you’ve successfully joined the meet up and have completed an introduction on Discord, a person from the organizer team will give you the ability to participate in the rest of the server. (If names don’t match up, then just message an organizer/admin through meetup/discord. We’re not here to out anyone and know that meetup is somewhat public.)

Note: If you are a teen (and this applies ONLY to teens) and are unable to make a meetup account, just head on over to the discord server and make an introduction.
