What we're about

Public Group

Join this exciting Meetup for FREE and enjoy engaging First Friday socials, fun activities and adventurous events. Our members are hard-working gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender, queer or questioning (LGBTQ) professionals and advocates from a variety of disciplines such as military, government, banking, law, medicine, new media, interior or fashion design and communications. We all share the same desire to enjoy the company of like-minded professionals in a relaxed, fun atmosphere.

Build a stronger base of professional contacts. Share ideas and job possibilities, tap expertise, or meet potential clients or business partners. Benefit by making new connections and honing ideas. There are no membership dues to be a part of it. Nor are there referral expectations like BNI's. Just show up, meet new people, and have fun. This group sets an exciting new paradigm. It's a new day, a new era, and this facilitates valuable connections for personal, professional, and business success.

Our group is welcoming and inclusive, respectful of everyone under the gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, queer or questioning (LGBTQ) rainbow and straight allies.

Our signature event is the monthly First Friday social hosted by TJ Flavell (https://www.linkedin.com/in/tjflavell). Often we team up with other gay and lesbian groups to co-sponsor events, offering more opportunities for mingling and fun.

Better yet, you may join this cosmopolitan group regardless of where you reside, be it NoVA, DC, or Maryland, or wherever, you are welcome. Our events are the rage!
