What we're about

Welcome to Out! Riverside. Our Meet-up group’s mission is to build a stronger, more cohesive LGBTQI community in Riverside and adjacent communities by creating social opportunities, facilitating social interaction, and encouraging other members to do the same.

Out! Riverside is the largest Meet-up group of its kind in the Greater Riverside region and that success is due in large part to the active participation of people just like you!

With close to 1,000 members, you can either RSVP to someone’s Meet-up or, just as fun, schedule one of your own. Yes, that’s right! You can schedule your very own Meet-ups. In fact, we encourage it! The more Meet-ups there are, the more to choose from. You can do a one-time event or a regularly scheduled one. It’s really up to you. So whether you just want to hang out for a cup of coffee, go on hike, have a game night, have gals’ or guys’ night out on the town, go for it! Just submit a suggested meetup, and we'll get in touch with you.

And no problem if you just want to invite “_______” (fill in the blank with L, G, B, T, Q or I – or all of the above!). We understand that finding friends who share your specific orientation or gender identity and interests is important. And we value that.

Also, be sure to join our Facebook group https://www.facebook.com/groups/OutRiverside . (https://www.facebook.com/groups/OutRiverside/) It’s an interactive space where you can learn about what's happening in our community, post things that are of interest to the Greater Riverside LGBTQI community, and meet even more like-minded people.

So again, welcome, and looking forward to Meeting-up…with YOU!
