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.

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.
