I have created this group for people with Italian heritage and who identify as gay/lesbian in all its diversity. In this way we may continue to connect & develop our cultural origins with fellow Paesani.* *Paesani means local townsperson from same village.
Italians love to mingle and be all encompassing and debate loudly. I visualise that we will be a generous, sunny and communicative group. We like to smile; we love to talk - preferably over a one or two hour meal followed by a good cup of coffee! And a game of cards!
Perhaps you are from another Group and want to make new friends in the Italian world ? please feel free to pop in and share some of our activities as we like to exchange stories.
Perhaps your grandfather's, great grandmother's cousin is Italian ? You believe you are remotely related because of your brown eyes ? then please feel free to come along, as long as you have a Passion for all or some things ITALIAN.
For our Gay/Lesbian friends who are not Italian, however are Passionate about all Or some things Italian, i.e. its Language, its Culture, its Food, our way of life, or do you know someone who is Italian? I am happy for you to join us.
The Italian Dinner Dances from different regions will be the main event that I organise as this is a total immersion into Italian Fun Culture. So please bring along your table of friends!
Italian Dinner Dances are mainstream environments and not exclusively gay, however our table(s) will be! It is a great way to mingle and make new friends.
Entertainment & dancing at the clubs is usually mixed/modern/folk with a mix of Italian and English tunes.
I appreciate feedback and new ideas so that we can accommodate evolving needs and continue to grow. From time to time we will link in with other Gay Meet Up Groups. There will be other in between events ranging from coffees to dinners, picnics, outdoor activities, free events, arts and culture, the list is endless and this one is mostly up to you, so please feel free to suggest events as I am looking for hosts or co-organisers to help run this group
A presto! (See you soon!)
