Who we are, what we do and how to join
Become a member of Meeup and find our groups Gay And LesBian Social The Netherlands and LesBian Social Club. You’ll get an e-mail when we schedule new events you can then RSVP on the website or through the app. That way we can keep you updated on the latest details of the event and you can contact us on how to find us or if you have any questions.
We are always on the lookout for fun ideas we could do together. If you have an idea for a Meetup just send us an email. Events in the Gay & LesBian Social group are always hosted by a member of the Organizer Crew. We don´t post events orginesed by others on our agenda. Let us know if you would like to host the event yourself after you attended a few of our Meetups!
You can also help us out to by linking to our website or mentioning our events in your agenda or newsletter. If you are running your own LGBTQ Meetup-group we are happy to promote your events in our agenda on this website.
Joining the Gay & LesBian Meetup group is free. We either share the costs or you buy your own filmticket, food and drinks. When we rent a boat we share the costs when we have a picnic we all bring something. We don´t charge for just joining the event, all members of the Organizer Crew organize these events in their own time, ofcourse you can always buy your host a drink.
Sponsors to help run the groups are very welcome.
We are a bunch of friendly faces who organise a couple of LGBTQI Meetups per week in Amsterdam, Utrecht en The Hague like picnics, boattrips, evenings out and afternoon coffeemeetups. Sometimes we meet in the gay-scene but often we meet at a place where we like the athmosphere or where it is cool to hang out. Some people have met before but there are also always newcomers, so if it is your first time, don’t be shy chances are you are not the only one. Our motto is “The More The Merrier” and we are always happy to meet you.
The events in Gay and Lesbian Social The Netherlands are hosted by the Organizer Crew, if you want to join us or share your ideas on a fun event we should host, just drop us a line via e-mail.
Gay and Lesbian Social Connection is a collaboration of the Meet-up groups: Gay And Lesbian Social The Netherlands | Gay & LesBian Social The Hague | and Amsterdam Lesbian Social Club.
Are you running your own Meetup group and would you like to work together send us an Email, better idea, why don’t you just drop by and meet us at one of our Meetups.
The Meetup platform is well known within the expat community for this reason our emailings and posting of events are ussualy in English. We are an international group of Dutch, British, German, French, Norwegian, Australian and Trinidad Gay-Lesbian-Biseksual-Transgender-Queer (LGBQTI)’s we like to hang out together and to meet to meet new people.
We are looking forward to meet you!
In the Gay & LesBian Social group we take our RSVP´s serious. It means that if you RSVP ¨YES¨ that you will definitely be there. Members of the group and Organizer crew will be looking out for you to join the Meetup.
If there are limited spots for an event or if reservations have to be made, we might ask you to reconfirm your spot or pay ahead to make sure you will attend.
After each Meetup we take attendance, people that showed up will be checked in, others will be marked ¨No-Show¨.
In case there is a waiting list for an event with limited spots, loyal members with higher attendance records can be moved up on the list in favor of member with low attendance records.
Please don´t just show up at an event if you haven´t RSVP-ed, this is very unsettling for the event host and the other members.
Gay & LesBian Social Meetup group offers a safe environment to hang out and meet other LGBTQI people. If a member or an Organizer feels that in any way the safety of the other members is in danger or the atmosphere gets unpleasant. Please contact a member of the Organizer crew or send an e-mail in case of un-pleasentness. If an event is hosted at someones home and it is your first Meetup we will ask you some questions and we will ask you to provide a recognizable profile picture, we also might ask you to come to a more general Meetup first so we can get to know you.
Also we are a Social Meetup group if random Meetup members contact you with chat-up messages that you might feel uncomfortable about.Unfortunate to say this is a big problem in a lot of Meetup groups. Please report any unsolicited messages to the Organizer via e-mail.
In case of uneasy-ness or in case there is a safety issue at stake we have a zero tolerance policy and we will remove the member.
