What we're about

***Calling all people of the LGBTQ community: Maybe you are new to the city of Chicago. Maybe you are just looking to make some new friends. Or maybe you only want a reason to leave the house once in a while! No matter what the reason, Chicago Queer Folx 30+ welcomes those wanting to make connections and create community with like-minded people.***
We aim to be a fun, inclusive group with a wide range of activities - from nightlife and entertainment to outdoor recreation - we embrace experiencing a variety of what Chicago has to offer.

***PLEASE NOTE: Everyone in this group is given event organizer status. This means that you can, but are under no obligation to, host events yourself! You can do this either in-person or virtually (over Zoom, Google Meet, etc.). Please see the links below for further information, and if you still have questions, feel free to contact me!

UPDATE as of June 2021: As many Meetups have done, we are now a hybrid of virtual and in-person events! That means we are now open to members all over the world! Join us for a movie night, happy hour, or online games! Or, in person, for exploration throughout Chicago and nearby areas!


Please be sure to read the following two message board posts about the group's mission and expectations as soon as you are approved:
