Queer Speed Dating X Friends and Family Bar, Oakland CA


Queer bars have historically been spaces to find and create community, but those spaces are dwindling, and it's increasingly harder to put yourself out there — hell, even the very mechanics of how we meet strangers has completely changed.


Our intent with this party has never been solely to create a love connection (tho it's real damn cute when it does happen!) This party has come about bc we wanted to create space for cute, flirty, friendly, and even flingy, intentional connections; all with someone you may have never crossed paths with. And considering that queerness at its core is about exploring oneself, challenging vulnerability, and living outside the boundaries of normativity, why the hell wouldn't we fuck around and find out what could be?


Come thru — whether you're single, open, looking for friends, looking for community, you’re poly, you feelin thirsty?! — however you show up, there’s gonna be something/ someone for everyone! We promise we won't bite…unless of course you want us to � Meg & Blake of Friends and Family Bar
