Monterey LGBTQ & Friends Meetup
We're trying to create a safe, fun, supportive group to get out and about in our beautiful local surroundings. We plan to hike, dine out, go dancing, play trivia, join community events and more! <br>
If you're looking to get more involved, there are plenty of resources available! There's The Epicenter of Salinas, the county's first youth-led resource and community center, that hosts wonderful community events. A handful of our members are also involved with Rainbow Speakers and Friends as well, a volunteer group that provides education and outreach about LGBTQ issues in the local community.

Los Angeles Vampires
North Hollywood, CA
It is a meetup for Real Vampires, Witches, Werekin, Otherkin, Donors, Supporters, Edge Players and those who are simply curious about us.
This group is NOT about role playing games, vampire literature, movies, or TV (although most of us love these aspects), we are also NOT a free resource for reality TV shows (see our media policy).
We are NOT a fish bowl for your anthropology class or other college classes. We do not wish to be studied, interviewed or observed.
Also we cannot turn you into a vampire (see above about this is not an RPG group).
You do not need to be a vampire or a donor or any other label to join.
This group is LGBTQ inclusive, Kink Friendly.
We are NOT a charity or social service group. We can not assist you with legal problems, housing issue or discrimination.
Since we meet at public restaurants and pubs we require both a small donation and that you patronize the venue (buy food or drink). Please do not bring outside food or drink to the venue.
In order to join this group it is REQUIRED that you answer all the profile questions. Membership requests with incomplete profiles will not be approved. We screen our members through the profile questions. I will no longer be approving everyone who requests to join. You have to use the profile answers to convince me that you are really planning to attend.
You must be over the age of 18 to join this group.
LOCAL MEMBERS ONLY. You must be in the Southern California Area (roughly from Bakersfield to the North, Catalina to the West, Las Vegas in the East, San Diego in the south). This is not a online group, its about meeting in person.
I am going to be very strict about who I let join, and very liberal about who I deny, delete or ban. The previous open door policy had lead to the group being filled with deadwood. The deadwood has been purged, and membership will be tightly controlled.

All the best in one place!
Think of this as Summer Camp for Adults.
In our digital world the more online, plugged in and connected we become the more disconnected we become from others. This group, with intention uses social medial to be Social in Real Life.
The mission of this group is its name.
Los Angeles is vibrant and diverse city. We have the opportunity to explore it and make new friends while doing so. Meetup is one of the few (maybe only) websites dedicated to having it's participants get offline and do things in reality.
There are no strangers here; Only friends you haven't yet met. (William Butler Yeats )
EVERYONE IS WELCOME INTO THE GROUP!
This is a place where everyone can just come as they are, and mingle with people who are like them AND who are NOT like them. We are not limited, restricted or exclusive by age, gender, gender preference, national origin, relationship status, etc. To put it more simply this group is open to all. All ages, all genders, all sexual orientations, all types - And that includes you!!!
There are plenty of meetups that exclude based of one reason or another. Or there plenty meetups where people self segregate. This meetup is neither of those. Diversity is coveted here. People are not monochrome and neither are we. You will fit in perfectly and find a lot of folks who just like you in certain aspect, and differ from you in others. It's the good kind of variety of life.
Some events on this group may specify limits at times. Those will be clearly noted when needed. At times they may be age delineated, or even gender related. Limits are placed often as a means to control size. The event can then be repeated/recycled with a different limit range. If there is an event you really wish to go to with a limit, . . . please contact me. You can be the impetus and the catalyst for the next event in the different limit/range. Other times the limit can be waived or bent as needed.
Challenge yourself and importantly, BE yourself and expand your horizons and comfort zone. Let your hair down! Go wild! Be open minded and be non-judgmental. The group is based off quality events to bring people together from positive social interaction. Anyone who wants to explore an alternative, bohemian, experimental, strange, obscure, weird, wild, absurd, bizarre, avant garde, unconventional, wild-at-heart side of Los Angeles is welcome!
In the interest of making events successful . . . I will spread events across other meetup groups to bump up attendance. For as you know, . . . sometimes people don't show up. Some Organizers get really bent out of shape about that. I do however know that life happens. Even if it's 10 mins before the event. Just change your rsvp. No worries. No harm-no foul. There is not any sort strikes or penalty system, and there is nobody keeping score. The exception will be if it is listed as a "no flake" event. On those you gotta give good notice of changes. It's about fun and community. What I have found is that by being mellow and and having good events more show up. We tend to have 80% or more attendance. I approach with compassion. So if you don't make one event or another. . . try and make it to the next, or the one after that. When you do make it, .. . . we will be glad you are there and all are welcome.
Here are the basics of group rules.
Do NOT contact members who you have not met in real life.
Avoid Put Downs.
Speak For Yourself.
Listen To Others.
You Have The Option To Pass.
Expect Unfinished Business.
While there are flexible attendance rules. There are sex/gender related rules. As a guideline do not message people you have not met in person. This is not an online dating place. Ladies: If a guy messages you please contact me. There have been problems with that happening over meetup in general. It's just not cool. Meetup is about real life and not virtual. Guys, . . . get off your computer and come to an event. Say hello in person. Smile, . . . be personable and decent. And just be there to get to know people and make friends of whatever gender. You can always use new good friends. And this is one way to make/meet them. Wingman tactics and and Pickup artist tactics are similarly not allowed in this group. Organizers of another group that are not an organizer or host here are also not allowed to solicit members.
The rest of the rule are just good ways to live and be.
These rules apply here AND on like-minded sister groups. So it also applies on the following
Photo and Name: You are allowed to join with whatever name and whatever photo. HOWEVER the main organizers may request you change either name or photo a their discretion. Names that are products, promotional, advertisements are red flags that will be requested to change or be removed. If you are using a photo that is not your face, a current face photo may be requested. Here is the rule of thumb. Fake name and fake photo will be requested to change to a real photo and a real name or face removal. Real photo and fake name is usually fine. Fake photo and real name is usually fine.
IF you need to maintain privacy of both then contact the main organizers and just ask. That's all it takes usually.
All organizers on the group do have different set of rules.
The rules simplified.
• No Emailing (do not use the bulk email feature in any way)
• No outside links
• Great Copy
• Great Pix
• 4 weeks notice is best.
• List any money costs in the first 2 or 3 lines.
Not too many rules. Not too complicated. They all have to do with respect for the membership.
Let's talk a little more about age: Are you in your 20s 30s 40s 50s 60s 70s 80s 90s ? (btw some write 20's 30's 40's 50's 60's 70's 80's 90's ). I am often asked "What age range is this group?" 20 40 maybe? 30 50 perhaps? Or even 60 70. Forties ( forty's forty ), Fifties ( fifty's fifty ) of sixties ( sixty's sixty ) or older does matter. 24-39 3000 20+ 30+ 50+ 60+ & under or over. We are just aiming at good community.
Yeah, . . . All that is great, . . . But I still have one question, . . . What age is your group?
Age is a state of mind. And our state (this group) has no borders.
If so then you may be looking for us!
We do NOT discriminate by age, sex or gender, gender preference, origin, religion, belly button lint, etc . . . .
Do you enjoy friendship, activities, key networking, casual socializing, parties learning, sharing, inspiration? You do!?!?! How about personal and professional development with active nerd adult ( adults ) who like adventure ( adventurers, adventures, adventurous ) stuff that may involve silly dance game ( games ) and cool nerds with addicting, amazing fun? Great!!!! There will be sweet things to discover while engaging in retro revival underground unique geeky exploration of fringe play plus speed punk quirky sophisticated spectacular geek socials with high society making savvy friends. It will be an offbeat odyssey of an outing to nerdy paradise and we will party at random places (see locations below). Come and share fine no flake ( flakes ) fun that is free or inexpensive and goes late into the lovely night. Left, right or center, we will live life together and enjoy.
We do some sports related events. Are you interested in teammates players for your sport or hobby? Such as bowling, trivia, camping, biking, hike, hikes, hiking, snowboarder, snowboarding, ski, skiing, kayaking? Or even related to bmi, exercise, fitness, healthy, lock pong, recreation, recreational, outdoor, york Halloween, mammoth mountain, St Patrick's, Ensenada, un scrabble solitaire poker or more!!! We run the range.
A bigger majority of what we are cultural ( culture ), language, travel, music, arts, festival, performance, crave, dining, exotic, restaurant, food, foodie, architecture, art, artistic, urban, or ballet. But it does not stop there. We also do comedy, concert ( concerts ), cook, cooking, theater, theatre, culinary, cultural, tours, sub-culture, subculture sponge ( sponges ), performances, dances, dancing, museums, musical ( musicals ), bars, foodies, dinner, dinning, bbq, beach, restaurants, trips, cruise ( cruises ), cuisine.

Did we miss one? Oh. . . OK then, . . Send that so we can add it to the list.
Aside from the High Brow we do engage in the Low Brow such as wine, beer, drink, bar hopping, dive bars ( dives ), rave ( raver ravers raves raving ), hip-hop hiphop, hole holes-in-walls, crawl crawls, trance techno, dubstep, night nightclub, nightlife, nights. As well as classic club clubbing, clubs eclectic, edm electro electronica, pubs, pub speak, speakeasy, drinks, meet meeting mix mixer mixers mixing, greet, happy hour hours haunts, Did somebody say volunteer mingle? Let's DoLA or make a Timeout and TimeoutLA. LAist anyone?
So the High Brow and the Low Brow get together and make up THE KNOW BROW and that is all about people and who makes us up.
By ethnicity we very much match the instagram ethnic makeup of Los Angeles with Caucasian and Non Hispanic Whites, Latino, Black or African American, Native American,Asian, Native Hawaiian and Other Pacific Islander and others such as Middle Eastern such as Arab or Israeli, and many more from across the global atlas.
Different than ethnicity is Nationality, or National Origin. And again . . . from that we run the range European, Filipino, Japanese, Korean, Pacific Islander, Indian, Taiwanese (Taiwan), Thai, Vietnamese, Chinese ( China, Cantonese, Mandarin ), Hong Kong Mexican ( Mexico ), and more and more. Even USC or UCLA
And that makes for sooooooooo many languages. We like language and the culture it is able to unlock It brings English, Spanish second ESL and ELL and ASL are big here. Hebrew, Yiddish, German, French, And the gamut of others to translate ( translation translator ) with class (classes).
Tolerance is a main tenet here as we are Christian ( Catholic, Mormon, etc), Jewish (Jew Jews), Muslim, Sikh, Hindu, Buddhist, tech Scientology and more. And even Republican, Conservative, Liberal, Democrat, Libertarian, Bernie / BernieCrat, or even Trump or Trumpian or Scientologist. This is a big tent and since it's decent social we will all be decent.
What it comes down to is we are making new friends ( friend freind freinds ) and to be friendly. Almost like finding your entourage Made up of Men (man men's mens) and women ( woman women's ) and non-binary too. Members may be young or old, married, single ( divorce divorced separated and never married ) or coupled (couple as part of a committed relationship / relationships ). Many are likely singles and looking to date in one way or another. Going on dates or dating is fine. But it does NOT happen via using the group like Tinder, Match.com, POF or eharmony.
This group is about real life. So online messaging of people you have not met in real life is not allowed. Why such a rule?
Because it is heterosexist of you to assume that all people are interested in you. Like is says above there are married or those in committed relationships. There is is also the range of sexual preference in the group. Gay, lesbian girls lgbt lgbtq queer bi poly swing swinger swinging and any sort of variation such as transsexual and transgender. We do accept all. Even rs40 and rso40. We do NOT accept SpeedDating or Speedating or whatever you call it. It's forbidden.
Whoever you find cute, hot, sexy or find attraction to that comes in person. Plenty a match and romance or spark may happen. You may find your love (or lover). But you also may just make great friends girlfriend ( girlfriends ). It's just down to good decent social. Conscious communication and engagement that makes for self-improvement and improvement of others. Conversation and network or networking of professionals. That's just smart l33t leet api entrepreneur groupting that will lead to inspirational international consciousness.
We just added Game of Thrones GOT and The Walking Dead viewing parties.
Where do you do events? We do them ALL OVER!!!! I have taken the time to look at past events and the cities they have happened in and near and put it together with the upcoming location too. Our groups IS different, . . . we DO range all over the city. Here are where we HAVE BEEN, and where we are GOING!! All of it is obscure or obscura.
So I have gone in great detail to cover who we are and what we do. This is accurate and verifiable by going to our past events and looking that what we have done. This is all fact based on the breadth, scope and mission of this group.
If you have made it this far. Then watch this and then, . . .get off social media and on meetup. The social part of social media. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GEWnXmDfVZg

The San Diego Gay Christians Meetup Group
San Diego, CA
We’re here to provide a fun and informal group where LGBTQ Christians can meet, hang out, and get to know each other. Any gender, any age, single or coupled—all are welcome!
The group is not affiliated with any church or denomination. No doubt some group members are conservative and some are more liberal. Some love traditional hymns and some rock out to contemporary praise. Some (perhaps many) are uncertain about faith and church after being wounded by religious institutions in the past. Some may even have experienced ridicule and rejection in the gay community for being a person of faith. This is a safe space to come with all those preferences and experiences and questions and doubts, a safe place to be both gay and Christian!
Due increased "bot" and spam activity, as of March 2019, an organizer must approve new members. Please fill in the sign-up questions in such a way that we can tell you are a real, local human being with an honest interest in joining the group!
A note on Meetup's discussion feature. Please remember you are posting to a multi-gender Christian group made up of people from many backgrounds. Non-commercial posts sharing Christian music, events, or resources are great. Personal, non-sexual posts are also welcome ("who wants to hang out this weekend?"). If you're organizing a group event at a public place, public replies are fine. To organize a private meeting, or to share personal contact info, please reply in a private message. Regardless, always be safe when meeting someone you don't know!
We look forward to meeting you!

This group is accepting of all parents, married, single, LGBTQ and straight. We especially want our children to know other adopted kids to gain support from also. They grow up feeling more connected having other adopted kids as friends. While we grown ups talk, fun, child care is provided in a safe, secure setting, just outside where we are.
We meet every other month, usually the 4th Sunday of that month in Tarzana, CA at 3pm. Sometimes we meet up in between for fun family get togethers. We offer support and share resources.

GLASC Dinner and Social Club
Santa Clarita, CA
A group for Santa Clarita LGBTQ, family, and friends to get together and share a meal, see a movie, socialize at parties, and so much more. Our main events are the Tuesday Night Dinners when we meet every Tuesday night at a different restaurant in the Santa Clarita / Canyon Country area, and the Friday Night Coffee which meets every Friday at a local coffee shop.
In addition, there will be "surprise" alternate events including, but not limited to, movie nights, book clubs, coffee clutches, concerts, theatre, and anything else we decide to throw into the mix.
Due to the size of the group, there will be limits to the number of people who can attend Tuesday Dinners. This limit is in place so that we can get a table together. If too many people RSVP for a dinner, we will be forced to split the group into multiple tables. Sometimes this works out and we are close to each other and can still socialize. Please RSVP early to ensure your seat at the table.
This group meets in conjunction with GLASC - The Gay and Lesbian Association of Santa Clarita. GLASC has been in the Santa Clarita / Canyon Country area for over 30 years and is the oldest gay and lesbian association in the valley.
NOTE: Due to the billing methods used by MeetUp, any member who is not active for more than one year will be removed from the group. While MeetUp is free for the member, the organizer is billed for the services rendered by MeetUp. Thank you for your understanding.

Hiking, movies, happy hours, bowling, dinner, etc. If you want to meet more people in the LGBT community in OC, this is the group for you!

Find Your Path: Somatic Transformation and Healing
Welcome to those of you seeking change, healing, and transformation or maybe just more aliveness and joy. This virtual group is for people interested in personal or professional transformation through connecting with the wisdom of the body. The word Soma means body and in Somatics, we view breakthrough change as happening not when one gains enough new insights and knowledge about an issue or pattern but rather when one engages in new practices that transform who we are at the physical level as well.
This group will include dialogue, discussion, and mainly practices that help you connect with what matters most to you, build your relationship with your body, and increase resilience for managing life stressors. I am a Somatic Coach and my work is especially affirming of LGBTQ+ folks, people experience chronic illness and pain, and people in recovery, though I welcome all people interested in transformation through the body.
