What we're about

About Us:
Originally starting off as a small MeetUp group known as the Miami's Gay 20-Somethings, the idea came about when young adult groups started becoming relatively popular in other parts of the country.

These new groups were critical in providing an awesome experience for the LGBTQ community in a way to interact with other people in their age bracket that didn't involve the nightclub/bar life scene. Noting that Miami didn't have anything like this at the time specifically for this target audience, a group was set up to address that need.

What had once been just a small collaboration of 20-something year olds on MeetUp, led to becoming an extensive Facebook group of over 800 members, to now serving all age groups as a newly-recognized 501c7 non-profit organization consisting of a board, leadership council, and two chapters. Welcome to the Gay Vista Social Club!

Men’s Spotlight Film & Party: The Blonde One

Regal Cinemas South Beach Stadium 18 Movie Theater

TICKETED EVENT Men's Spotlight Film & Party: The Blonde One Thursday April 25, 2019, 6:45 pm FILM In the suburbs of Buenos Aires, Gabriel has just moved in with his colleague, Juan. Shy and reserved, Gabo is reluctant to follow Juan’s wandering hands and meaningful looks. With a revolving door of beauties streaming out of Juan’s bedroom, his machismo seems firmly in place. However, the attraction between the two men is undeniable. What starts out as a sexual relationship based on convenience of location soon develops into the engrossing evolution of a tender and intimate relationship, which is as sweet as it is heartbreaking. As reality begins to intrude on the couple’s homemaking fantasy, something has to give, or does it?
