“Sometimes going to your first event is the hardest part. But what you will find is a welcoming group of couples who are eager to get to know you.”
—Steven and Ken
Seattle Gay Couples events provide many ways for couples to get to know each other. Potlucks, dinners and brunches, bowling nights, date nights, holiday and Pride celebrations, day and weekend excursions in and around the Pacific Northwest, and more round out our busy CALENDAR of events.
Our leadership plans about 10 or 12 larger, group events every year. Individual couples are free to organize their own, smaller events around these. Most take place in members’ homes, public establishments and cultural centers, and public recreation areas around the Puget Sound region.
One of our most popular programs is our biannual 3×5 Group program. It is a great way for three couples to get to know each other in a small group setting where they can have more in-depth conversations. Member couples sign-up to participate. The program organizer then groups three member couples who are located close to one another. The three couples meet three times over a five-month period, deciding where, when and what to do. Some participating couples prefer hosting events in their homes. Others enjoy hosting a picnic, restaurant meal, museum visit, a hike, or some other type of gathering.
