ActiVets is based in San Diego and is for primarily for LGBTQ Active Duty and Veterans from the U.S. as well as any military branch in the world. We are open to all STRAIGHT military members as well. We do not discriminate and are open to ALL who serve or served in the military.
I am prior military (USMC) myself and know what it is like to want support and friendship of others who serve or served but cannot seem to find that right connection. Sometimes those around you are not there or you prefer to keep your private life away from work. We will be there for everyone for any reason. I just started this group and hope that it will grow (especially since Meetup groups are not free).
I will do my best to host at least 2 groups per month, this way if you miss one, you may attend the next. For now I will start with every other Wednesday of each month starting August 3rd. As the group grows, we will be able to offer more days.
I am also available for 1-on-1 sessions for those who just need a friend to listen. Anything spent on the group is out of my pocket. There is no need to contribute any monies but on occasion, I may request that members bring a food or beverage item to share with other members. I will also host potlucks, bbq’s and social events in my home. On occasion, we may meet at a coffee shop, club or dining location to get some fresh air.
Thank you all for serving and for those who served.
