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.

Aqua Tutus Diving Club

San Leandro, CA

Aqua Tutus Diving Club

Diving the California Coast since 1955.

Aqua Tutus Diving Club was founded in 1955 and became a non-profit organization in 1958. Our goal is to educate the general public about the sport of Skin and SCUBA diving through quality instruction.

We hold a General Meeting at 7:30 p.m. on the first Thursday of each month, at the Ricky's Sports Theatre and Grill located at 15028 Hesperian Blvd in San Leandro, CA. The meeting is held in the large banquet room alongside the parking lot and is open to the public. If you're interested in scuba diving or want to learn about the marine environment, please join us.

Aqua Tutus Diving Club's membership is made up of a diverse group of individuals with common interests in sport diving, skin diving, diving instruction, underwater photography and abalone diving. Two of our members are PADI-certified dive instructors who offer subsidized training to Aqua Tutus members. Membership costs $40 a year and there is a discount for members living in the same household and for students. Club membership subsidizes diver training and guest speakers who come to our meetings to talk about marine ecology and dive sites around the world.

Our members have a wide range of diving ability from not-yet-certified to thousands of dives. They hail from all over the San Francisco Bay Area, as well as our extended family in Washington, Nevada, Hawaii and the Monterey Bay area. We dive primarily in the Monterey Bay area each month and organize a couple California North Coast dives each year. Some members plan trips to warm water destinations, such as Mexico and countries in the South Pacific, and make those trips available to other club members.

Aqua Tutus uses this meetup as a way to simplify members diving together. Visit our website and our Facebook page.

Bay Area Studio Fashion Photography Workshops

Oakland, CA

Bay Area Studio Fashion Photography Workshops

Our workshops are exclusively for those photographers searching for coveted information about the often secretive and highly guarded world of fashion photography.

WATCH MORE ABOUT OUR WORKSHOPS: https://youtu.be/QsEC7Cq1CNs 


Fashion photography is a genre of photography which is devoted to displaying clothing and other fashion items. In doing so, your goal is to accomplish three things; sell a product/garment, sell a lifestyle and sell a story. 

Fashion photography is most often conducted for advertisements or fashion magazines such as Vogue, Vanity Fair, or Elle. Over time, fashion photography has developed its own aesthetic in which the clothes and fashions are enhanced by the presence of exotic locations or accessories. Fashion Photographers not only photograph garments but also interpret the underlying ideas or themes of the season, the clothing range, the designer or the brand.

They work in studios and on location to produce imaginative and eye-catching images that advertise clothes, accessories and lifestyle. Fashion photographs are commissioned for a variety of publications, ranging from mail-order catalogues and websites, to high-fashion magazines and Sunday supplements.

Fashion photography is a is not only an art, most importantly, it’s a business!
