What we're about

If you are new to the Ventura County area or have lived here forever and just need to expand your circle of LGBTQ+ friends, join us!

This is an inclusive group for singles, couples, other pairings, and families of all ages interested in meeting other LGBTQ+ folks, making new friends, or just checking out some fun activities.

If you would like to be an event organizer, please message me (AJ) and let me know.

Hope to meet you soon!

Here is an article you might want to read before attending our events. We are non-binary-, gender fluid-, genderqueer-, and trans-friendly, so please be prepared to respect all of our members if you attend our events.

Distance Energy Healing (Free and No Link/Zoom Needed)

Needs a location

Join us for a remote energy healing session from the comfort of your home.

You do not need a phone, tablet, or computer to join. All you need to do is find a comfortable, peaceful spot where you can sit or lie down for 20 minutes.

During the healing session, find a comfortable position where you can meditate or simply focus on your breathing and be open to receiving positive, healing energy.

You may want to focus on a particular thing -- physical, emotional, or spiritual -- that needs healing, or you may want to just take this time for yourself and relax.

If there is something specific you would like me to focus on, please message me (AJ) at least a couple of hours before the session to make sure I receive the message.

If you plan to join us, please RSVP. (When I am doing distance healing sessions, names and photos are helpful as I channel and focus the energy.)

As with any healing modality, whether in-person or remote, remember to stay hydrated for the next few days.

This is a free offering. There has been some interest from attendees in having a way to give something back. For folks who are interested in this, donations can be sent via PayPal to [masked] to help offset the costs of hosting the group on Meetup.

Energy healing is not a replacement for medical care or mental health care.

Queer Arts & Crafts Circle (Via Zoom)

Needs a location

Let's get crafty!

Get together with other artists, crafters, and makers to socialize while we work on our latest projects.

We can show off our work, swap crafty tips, or just chat about how our week has been.

So, set up your laptop in your art studio or grab your knitting basket and head to a comfy chair with your phone and join us for some artsy-crafty fun!

In the future, I'd love to also see about maybe including some tutorials or mini-classes if folks are interested in sharing their knowledge.

For now, we will meet on Zoom. Once it is okay to meet in person, we can decide as a group how we want to move forward.

The Zoom link is available after you RSVP.

If it doesn't work for some reason, message me so that I can send you the meeting ID and passcode.

Hope to see you there!

A couple of folks have asked how they can give back or help these activities keep happening, so, if anyone is interested in helping with the costs of Meetup and Zoom, my PayPal is [masked] or my Venmo is @AJ-Davis-Varela.
