What we're about

*** This group was created by Gay Asian Men living in Sydney to support the Gay Asian Men community, to create safe spaces where opinions can be openly shared and cultural commonalities acknowledged and respected. ***

This group is dedicated to same-sex attracted males of Asian* heritage and backgrounds. The group meets regularly each month and we alternate between social events to discussion workshops forum relevant to Gay Asian Men, organised by a group of volunteer facilitators.

--> As a support group, sometimes we discuss culturally sensitive topics, so membership is restricted to Gay Asian Men (those identifying as a gay, bisexual and same-sex attracted man of Asian* descent (including South-East, North-East, Southern, Central and Western Asia).

What we are:

- An open, welcoming group for same-sex attracted Asian male community creating events in relaxed, social environments.

What we are not:

- A singles dating group

- A hookup procurement zone

- A forum for gender/queer politics

There is also food and drinks available for purchase at the Hotel.

P.P.S. Please update your RSVPs prior to 3pm on the day of the event if you are no longer coming to give those on the waiting list enough time to arrange travel to get to the event. People who repeatedly pull out last minute will not be invited back as it isn't fair to those on the waiting list who want to come. As usual, no-shows will be marked and recorded.

Sydney Gay Asian Men & Friends: Virtual Games Night - Halloween October 2021

We are 100% coordinated by volunteers. Through our events, this group strives to engage and empower same-sex attracted Asian men within the community in Sydney. Our game nights are a great way for same-sex attracted Asian Men to be themselves, have fun and be social in a safe environment.

Since the start of COVID we are hosting online events. Based on the success of our previous virtual games and request from participants, we are planning another virtual games night.

Instead of our usual onsite games nights, we will have virtual game sessions that we can do at the comfort of our own homes, via zoom starting at 5:45pm. Agenda as follows:

5:45pm - Game rules and Question time for newbies.

6pm to 9:30pm - Online Werewolf Sessions. 2 teams (villagers and werewolves teams) are trying to eliminate the other team, however everyone's identities is secret. This video conference version will be slightly tweaked for the online experience. More game details on the night. Bring a pad of paper/small whiteboard and a thick marker pen to write on (required) and a blindfold (optional)

9:30pm onwards - Social chat a.k.a. afterparty. For those that want to stick around to chat with other participants feel free to stay online.

Spectators and allies welcome though it's more fun to play. Looking for at least 10 players. RSVP to confirm the helps me plan the games. Online event will be hosted through Zoom. Zoom link sent to attendees before the event:

Please arrive on time as coming while a game has started may affect the experience for everyone else, and only RSVP if you intend on coming as this affects pre-game preparations.

See you then!
