Walking Carson Beach - Event with the Dorchester LGBT Group

The Dorchester LGBT Group or

Had fun walking Carson Beach for the first time with the Dorchester LGBT Group July 10th 6PM.  4 of us met at Star Market near JFK Station. By 6:30PM after making sure everyone had what they needed for food, we took off from Star Market to Carson Beach.

We met up with two other members later in the evening.  All together, there were six of us.  10 were RSVPed so 60% showed up.  I'm considering attendance for this event a success.

 I came to this event with the intention of snapping lots of photos.  Not only did I want photos of the Dorchester LGBT Group, but I also wanted photos of the Cambridge Boston Volley Ball Association.  I found out about this organization through my friend Chris.  The CBVA welcomes gay, straight, men, women, black, white, everyone to play volley ball. They are normally in Cambridge for the winter season but play at Joe Moakley Park near JFK station for the summer season Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays.

Unfortunately, I was too late to take photos, but did get to introduce myself to John who I had previously conversed with via a few comments on about the CBVA.

From the CBVA website July 11t: "Cambridge Boston Volleyball Association welcomes players of all skill levels, men and women, gay or straight."

The Dorchester LGBT Group has a Date with The Welcoming Committee

On the morning of June 30th, I just realized the Welcoming Committee was coming to Dorchester Masssachusetts.  I was already familiar with this organization and its objective of venturing into spaces that are not typically LGBT destination.   On July 1st 6:30PM, they were going to Tavolo's.

I was excited and moved as quickly as I could to notify members of the Dorchester LGBT group; however, it was too late. I went, but I went alone

It felt different.  It was the first time in months I had been to an event where I didn't know 1 person there.  I arrived early and sat at the bar watching the socker game on t.v. along with the bar tender and everyone else there on what started out to be a slow night.  Then very slowly at first, organizers of the Welcoming Committee started to arrive. Then guest after guest poured in.  It was a very young crown. 20s 30s.

I definitely had fun and stayed busy to the point where I didn't stop to take one photo. There must have been 50 or 60 people there that night walking around in our reserved space, foot steps from the bar. When I left the group had not started to shrink.  Some guests had already left, but they were replaced with new faces I did not see walk in.

I will be keeping a closer eye on the Welcoming Committee and will definitely try to plan a 2nd date.
