Yankee Cruising Club

gay bostonDid you know that the Yankee Cruising Club was founded in 1983 with the intention to bring LGBTQ boaters together to meet, make friends and most importantly get out on the water?

Yankee Cruising Club’s next event is this Sunday, May 19th at the Volvo Ocean Race Stopover in Newport, Rhode Island. If this sounds interesting, click here to visit their event page to learn more.

The social group plans events year round but now that the weather is finally warming up, look for more social programming designed to get out on the water. You can learn more about the group by checking them out online at meetup.com/Yankee-Cruising-Club or on Facebook at Yankee Cruising Club

I want to feature the LGBTQ groups and organizations that help people connect and enrich Boston’s gay life. If you’d like to have your club / team featured, please email me at bosguymail@gmail.com or via FB messenger.

Boston’s LGBTQ swim club: LANES

SwimmerEach Tuesday I feature a different LGBTQ club or organization to help connect gay men living in the Boston area. One such group you may not know about is Boston’s great swimming club, LANES – Liquid Assets New England Swimming.

LANES swims year round so you can join at anytime and with five practices scheduled each week (three during the week and two on the weekends) you are sure to find a time that will work for you. Everyone is welcome to join. LANES has everyone from former collegiate swimmers to those who are swimming to stay in shape – and of course the social aspect, which you can learn more about by visiting them online and joining them at one of their upcoming practices.Brian Moynihan, William Lawson, LANES, Liquid Assets New England Swimming, gay boston

Gays for Patsy Boston chapter

gay bostonSometimes meeting people in Boston can be difficult so each Tuesday I feature a different gay / gay-friendly group or team to share with you ways to connect with people. BTW – by connect I don’t mean that you need wifi, I mean actually interacting with them in person. This week I wanted to feature the Boston chapter of Gays for Patsy who meet regularly.

The group happens to also have their Spring Stomp! Hoedown in Ptown later this month (April 27-29). It doesn’t matter your skill / level to participate but you do have to register and you have to be open to having fun.

For more information about the Boston chapter or to learn about their upcoming event in Provincetown visit them online at gaysforpatsy.org and definitely like their Facebook page, Gays for Patsy.

Frontrunners Boston

Temptation TuesdayIn less than a week 30,000+ runners will undertake one of the most difficult marathons in the world when the 122nd Boston Marathon takes place. It is hard not to be inspired by these people but for the majority of people a jog around the Charles River might be all you can commit to.

For those of you who may be looking for an excuse to be more active, I wanted to suggest checking out the Boston Frontrunner’s chapter. This club meets each week and has a social element following their Saturday runs, which gives you the chance to get to meet and connect with others. Do not worry about needing to be some amazing runner to keep up. Different distances are available for you to choose what is best.

The Boston Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence

gay bostonEach Tuesday I’m featuring a different LGBTQ club or organization to help connect gay men living in the Boston area. One such group I’ve wanted to feature since I started this weekly post is The Boston Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence. This group is one of Boston’s more unique and visible LGBTQ groups. The group freely gives of their time to virtually every LGBTQ organization and event you can imagine throughout New England.

The Boston Sisters are a House of The Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence, Inc, which was originally founded in San Francisco nearly forty years ago and now includes more than 2,000 Sisters worldwide. The Boston chapter was founded a little more recently in 2009 and they have definitely been a welcome addition to our community. I love seeing the Sisters out in public and anyone interested in learning more about the good work they do as well as the more social component of their convent, I’d recommend you reach out to them.  They are lovely – every single one of these sisters. For more information about this fabulous group of gals, check them out online at thebostonsisters.org.
