True Colors Queer Women's Meetup Monterey Bay

Monterey, CA

True Colors Queer Women's Meetup Monterey Bay

Welcome! This group is for all queer women. If you self-identify as a queer woman, this group is for you :) 🏳️‍🌈 

As the Admin and Organizer of this group, one of my primary objectives is to create well-defined boundaries so that the members of this community feel safe. With this in mind, you are welcome to become a member of True Colors if you are a lesbian, bi female, or an MTF trans lesbian. 

Established mid-October of 2020, this social club offers adult (18+ years of age) women, of all colors, single & partnered, an opportunity to create new and meaningful friendships and participate in common interest activities in the Monterey Bay Area.

Activities, adventures, and events will include but are not limited to hiking, biking, walking, running, kayaking, ropes courses, ziplining, backpacking, camping, frisbee in the park, book clubs, photography, coffee and tea, breaking bread, pub nights, farmer's market meetups, dancing, escape rooms, board and dice games, cards, tours, concerts, movies, parties, BBQs, trips, travel, whitewater rafting/tubing, skiing/snowboarding. The sky is the limit!

On average we offer about five meetups each month, usually one meetup per weekend, and then an occasional meetup on a weeknight. Often our weekend meetups are short local hikes or coffee & pastry get-togethers although occasionally we turn it up a notch and run a bigger, less local meetup such as whale watching, kayaking, or an e-bike ride. Our weeknight events have been brewery meetups so far, while we do have a full moon hike coming up in July and we'll add monthly Twilight Cycling at Laguna Seca when they get up and running again. 

We primarily hold our meetups in the greater Monterey Bay (Monterey, Carmel, Pacific Grove, Marina, Seaside, Salinas, Santa Cruz). We've talked about putting together trips to Guerneville and the Mendocino area this coming summer or fall. 

Everyone will be given a warm welcome. An ethos/culture of mutual respect, courtesy, warmth, dignity, 'positivity', and inclusivity for all members is expected. We endeavor to create an environment where members can feel confident, comfortable, and happy being their true selves. Our group vibe is warm, friendly, welcoming, inclusive, casual, and social. 

Feel free to suggest any ideas you have for events; your ideas are always welcome ;) After coming to a few events, you will likely also have the opportunity to become an Event Organizer and host events, if you wish. 

This Club is non-commercial/non-profit. Membership is free.

Please add a profile photo before applying to join our group. 

Note: Unless otherwise stated, True Color events are for queer adult women only. Just to be super clear, no pets, kids, or allies are invited to attend unless specified for a one-off event. If specified, the event will clearly state "+ dogs" or "allies welcome" in the event title or near the top of the post.

Let The Good Times Roll

Vista, CA

Let The Good Times Roll

We're all about good vibes and great times with better people. This all started in our dimly lit garages and parking lots after hours with warm whiskeys and static tunes. A few friends and family, good laughs, and beers. 

We like to change things up and keep it fresh. Never put baby in a corner. Theres far to much to explore. Wether we get down on a wine & paint night, get together to ride & dirt bike, or plan someones little monster a birthday, were just tryin to get back to the good old days of bare foot, babes and barbeques and bring community back to the neighborhood. Locals for locals. No instagram required.

We used to know each other, let our children run wild in the streets long as the sun was out and called our friends family. We shared when we had too much, asked when we needed a hand, and supported our neighborhoods.

We didn't keep up with the times we just lived and let live and let the good times roll. We've been missing the vibes lately and we think you might be missing it too. In studios, workshops and our friends garage, were all doin what we do. Creating, collaborating and cultivating OUR tomorrow. Lets get back to the drawing board. Together this time. Worlds' been rough and times are tough and there's never been a better time for a 'block party'. We're building an army of those who were raised wild, lost in the right direction.

SoCal Wildlife and Landscape Photography Meetup

Torrance, CA

SoCal Wildlife and Landscape Photography Meetup

Photographers of all skill levels should join us as we share and learn about wildlife and landscape photography from Michael Bargeron and the group as a whole. Michael has photographed wildlife and landscape around the world for the past 25 years. He leads annual expeditions to photograph wildlife in some of the worlds most amazing places such as the Amazon River, Africa, Galapagos, Madagascar, Australia, and the Seychelles Islands. Michael loves reptiles, especially turtles and tortoises and has been the Executive Director of the California Turtle & Tortoise Society for the past 20 years or so. The goal of this group is to learn techniques and to test them in the field. Our home base is The Madrona Marsh Nature Preserve in Torrance. We will do regular meetings with presentations and slideshows to work on technical knowledge and then go into the Marsh for hands-on experience photographing wildlife. In addition, we will schedule fieldtrips to interesting places near and far to take photos we can share and discuss at later meetings. Any skill levels are welcomed, especially new shooters! It is best to bring a camera that allows manual settings for aperture, shutter, and iso, but bring what you have and get ready to have fun! Those interested in big adventure will have the opportunity to join expeditions around the world to photograph wildlife and landscapes that are breathtaking with this group. Most classroom meetings will last 1-2 hours, field meetings may last for several hours.
