I would love to meet someone just for me, someone to love.
However, there is something I want more, something I want first. I would like to find an easier way for everyone to connect with the LGBT community. While I am somewhat connected organizing the Dorchester LGBT Group, it's easy to understand why a lot of people aren't. While there are several groups out there on Meetup.com alone, not every event fits every schedule. It also takes a significant amount of time to get to know people. Friendships aren't built overnight.
Please comment if you have any suggestions for helping people connect to the LGBT community.
Also comment if you have questions you think I may be able to answer or things I you would like to see available to us in the future.

Interested in learning about and sharing Boston LGBT events with other members of the community.
You've found the right group.
Conveniently organized, right on facebook.com.
You'll be able to view and share event information with other members of the Lesbian Gay Bisexual and Transgender community.

Interested in meeting other members of the LGBT community in Dorchester. Please join us.---- www.Meetup.com/The-Dorchester-LGBT-Group/ ----------------- We are a group very open to creative suggestions and we're constantly looking for different locations to meet especially those that are in the Dorchester area. If you are apart of the lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender community, this group might be just what you're looking for.
You don't have to be from Dorchester to join but most of our events will be held there.
If you decide to start a group closer to home, we will be happy to support you.
I would personally like to see plenty of opportunities for people to get out and meet other LGBT members. While there are quite a few groups focused on Downtown Boston, I think it's important that people don't have to be inconvenienced just to meet someone for a few hours. It really takes time to build valuable connections, I simple want to take the commute out of the equation.

Updated December 27th 2015: This group is no longer active. However please consider joining the Dorchester Event Group. We would be happy to have you display your art at any of our public events where room allows.
Looking for artist(s) to display their art at our events.
I organize the Mattapan Roxbury Dorchester Free Events Group and others.
Follow the link to join:
We do not absolutely need art displayed at each event. However, this may be a great opportunity for 1 or 2 artists to display their work. Since we will not have decoration at most events, it will also help to brighten the atmosphere and to stir some conversation. Photography, painting, collage, music, etc. welcome.
1st Step: If interested, the first step is to join. You can respond to this email with questions. You can also email me through the group page after joining.
2nd Step: Send me an email and let me know you're an artists interested in displaying your work. I would like to give each artist a special title under their name so other members know their reason for joining.
3rd Step: Update your notification settings. I get way too many emails from some of these groups. It's annoying. I try to send only one or two emails a month. However, you may also get updated each time someone comments on an event. Please update your settings! I don't want you to spam me!
4th Step: Keep a look out for upcoming event opportunities. Any indoor event and maybe some outdoor events are opportunities to display your work.
About this group:
We are often joined by both the Dorchester Events Group and Dorchester LGBT Group.
This is more than an LGBT friendly group. It's an Lesbian Gay Bisexual Transgender welcoming group.
We welcome everyone young, old, brown, yellow, green, blue, tall, short, rich, poor. There is a place for you here. And if anyone makes you feel unwelcome including myself, please let me know.
I organize a few groups in Boston and I'm always looking for free events for us to attend. Free events mean all my members no matter their budget can attend. They simple need to cover the cost of transportation if they don't already live in the neighborhood. Finding other people hosting these free events and welcoming my group means a good time for everyone with little effort on my part. I will of course be giving credit to the event host.
This group may also be a great opportunity for free event hosts to collaborate with each other. Just maybe a few of us could team up on a free event. Anyone interested in teaming up? What kind of events do you like to host?
