The New Mexico Outdoors (NMO) is an Albuquerque based gay and lesbian social club dedicated to the appreciation and enjoyment of the outdoors. Any gay or lesbian, or gay/lesbian friendly individual is welcome to participate in any of the NMO events.
The New Mexico Outdoors typically schedules outdoor physical activities in the Albuquerque area but members are encouraged to schedule and lead events anywhere about the state or the southwest. NMO partakes in activities such as day hiking, bicycling, roller-blading, mountain bike riding, campouts, backpacking trips, southwest sight-seeing trips, river rapids trips, horseback riding trips, downhill skiing, cross-country skiing, and bowling just to name a few.
The New Mexico Outdoors usually has scheduled events on weekends but occasionally on weekdays. Every event is led by a NMO volunteer. The trip leader is the contact person for the event and all questions concerning the event should be directed to her/him via Meetup. The trip leader defines the particulars of the trip which includes the meeting place and time, what to bring, what to expect, what to wear, and what time the trip is expected to return.
The trip leader reserves the right to terminate an individual's participation in an event (either before, at the meeting place or during the activity) if he/she feels the physical demands of the event may be excessive for the individual. The NMO members should always make the appropriate decision for themselves as to whether they can handle a particular event based on it's description.
NMO is an inclusive group. We welcome anyone who shares our passion for the great New Mexico outdoors, and a mutual respect for the environment and for our fellow LGBTQ and LGBTQ friendly NMO members. Let's get together and have some fun!
We expect NMO Members to attend (Meetup at) or to organize & lead at least 1 scheduled NMO event every six months (preferably more). Also, as a courtesy to event leaders and participants, we expect NMO Members to always change their RSVP status from YES to NO if their plans change and they know they won't be attending an event.
