Ben and I are starting a new adventure with a group called “Out in Albany.”

Out in Albany is a social group for the LGBT+ community in Georgia’s “Good Life City.” We help build new relationships by promoting safe spaces and connecting people with each other and equality-minded resources.

Facebook page

Private Meetup group

The purpose of this group is to organize opportunities to meet up with other members of the Albany LGBT+ community in safe, supportive, welcoming places. We will meet in restaurants, coffee shops, or anywhere else where the owners and mangers have committed to ensuring a safe space for everyone. We will also have outings to visit and attend LGBT+ events across South Georgia to help people find more opportunities to connect with other people and resources.

This page is private on purpose–not everyone who is interested in attending our events is interested in making that known to anyone who visits an event page. We also maintain a Facebook page that lists the same events as the Meetup page as well as links to other resources and businesses who have expressed support.
