What we're about

We're gay, we're Dads, we're talking over a pint.

Wherever you are in your journey, you’re not alone: Other Dads are experiencing the same issues and worries, some have struggled along to a brighter place.

The group is inclusive and respectful. GayDads attending are out, in and every stage between; single, partnered, married, civilly-unioned, divorced etc.; Some guys had kids with an ex-wife, some are parents by surrogacy. We are every kind of 'rainbow family.'

We find that meeting up now and again is fun and helps.

Wherever you're at, at London Gay Dads Meetups there’s always a warm welcome.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Gay guys who have children, chatting over a drink. We know the particular struggles of being gay and a father. We make it work, for us it is normal.

It’s a relaxing, fun, positive, encouraging meet. First-time members specially looked out for and warmly welcomed. We don't do 'cliquey.'

People come along as singles and couples, younger, older, out, not out, still married to a woman, divorced, trans and everything in between. 'Wannabe-Dads' and women are welcome too. Every racial group and faith/no faith background has come and been warmly included. Basically everyone from every imaginable background is welcome. The only condition is that you have an interest in gay dads being the best and happiest dads they can be.

If you RSVP "Yes" one of the leaders will know to be on the lookout for you and not long before the meetup starts one of the leaders sends their mobile # to everyone signed up, just to make absolutely sure everyone finds us at the pub. You can just turn up though too, we understand and respect some people’s need for confidentiality. Just look for the LGDM logo signs. Usually, we're around the tables across from the upstairs bar.

Plenty of blokes go for non-alcoholic drinks. No pressure, no judgements. No charge for this meetup, or any London Gay Dads Meetup.

Join us for the gay Panto "New Dick" in Vauxhall

Above The Stag Theatre & Bar

Hey Everyone, this is your invite to the LGDM Panto Outing 5th Nov to get the festive season started early!

https://abovethestag.org.uk/dick-whittington

There'll be a quick dinner somewhere near the theatre (which is a 5 min walk from Vauxhall tube) for those who can make that before the Panto itself at 7:30pm and then surely there will be drinks to follow, for those who'd like to do that part of the evening.

We have block bought some tickets - first come first serve - and when those are 'sold out' we'll let you know if we can get more or if you should buy direct. Tickets are £28, but if that is a barrier, please let Doug know and we'll see what we can do.

Please reply to this Meetup invite and we'll message you to tell you if we still have tickets from our bloc purchase or should buy direct.

Guys who've already been to at least one meetup [in person or online] can ping Glyn {see below or search for 'Glyn' in LGDM 'Members'} to be added to the WhatsApp group which we use both for social chat between meets, and also to NewsFlash any lastminute amends to logistics, including details on dinner and drinks for this event, as well as on here.

Cheers, Doug, Steve, Glyn
