A new gay men’s discussion and social group was launched in Baltimore earlier this month. Based on the success of a similar group—the Gay District in Washington, D.C.—Charm City Gay Social was formed and meets each Friday from 8:30-10 p.m. at the First United Church – United Church of Christ, 1728 Eastern Ave. in the Fell’s Point area. A move to the Mount Vernon neighborhood may take place eventually.
The group, which was founded by David Sugar and Ian Damm Luhr, is aimed at gay men 18 and over. It holds weekly discussions on a variety of subjects, including “What Kind of Gay Are You: New Gay Stereotypes” and “How Have John Waters Movies Helped Shape Gay Culture in Baltimore.” The organizers are seeking discussion facilitators for future meetings.
There may be a game night added to the mix or other activities to be determined. Following the discussion, participants go out for dinner in the area or head to the clubs.
“Charm City Gay Social is a community-based social and discussion group with the focus on building an understanding of gay culture and personal identity, and awareness of community events and civil rights for gay, bi, trans, queer, questioning, and inter-sexed men,” says Sugar.
To join the group, visit Charm City Gay Social on Facebook or call 410-790-3592 for information.
