You don't have to sing or be an actor, you can buy a ticket and get the chance to hang out with local queers. You don't have to be into public speaking to show up and support others who are out there teaching the public about being LGBT. There are always behind the scenes things that need to happen and every show needs a friendly audience.
And don't forget that one of the easiest ways to meet your LGBT family is to volunteer for your local PRIDE events. And if you really want to kick it up a notch, get involved in PRIDE events in a few different communities around you. PRIDE events are growing and happening in more and more places and being spaced out across many months.
Get off the couch and get out there. Don't let 2013 go by and not get involved. I can't believe how many lesbians and gays I meet who don't participate in PRIDE. We've gotten complacent, don't be part of that crowd.
10. And finally, your local gay-friendly church. If you're a person of faith and participating in a structured spiritual community feeds your sense of well being then perhaps there is an LGBT friendly church in your community. And thank you again Google, here's a resource for you:
Gay-friendly churches. They have over 7,000 entries worldwide of churches that are gay welcoming along with a number of other spiritually focused resources and links.
We're out there, all over the place but you've got to get out of the house! Not all of these venues should be a surprise, but every day I work with clients who've never thought of searching on the Internet to get their need to for community met. There is so much information and its so easy to find it whether you're using Google, Bing or Yahoo. Get smart and use this amazing resource to find out where the LGBT singles are hanging out.
There is only one excuse for not meeting more LGBT people and that's because your butt is stuck to the couch. Get up, get out and get going. Yes you can.
