This group is for women of color who identify as queer, lesbian, bisexual, pansexual, etc. and find typical queer spaces...errrr...challenging. If you’ve reconciled with your own awkwardness and wish you could find other queer women of color with similar dispositions, who, quite naturally, aren’t likely creating meetup groups--but probably thought about it--this meetup group is for you. This group will focus on small-group activities to help foster conversation and lasting friendships--attending arts events and getting dinner afterward to discuss them, meeting for drinks at bars that aren’t teeming with people, grabbing coffee on a weekend afternoon, etc. We’ll try to have regular meetups and meetups for particular events. And we’ll always tolerate awkward silences, poorly-timed comments, clumsiness, and tangents.
