Community & culture

Feeling the urge to build your queer social circle?
Needing to get out of the house more?
Craving to meet cool new people?

Then Speed Mating at The Laird could be PERFECT for YOU!

After the last few years where ‘social isolation’ became the new normal, this event aims to bring CIS and Trans males together to make some new friends within our greater queer communities. There will be plenty of informal activities and conversations which will give us all the chance to get to know each other better.

And the good news is, this is NOT speed dating, so it wont be awkward, weird or put you on the spot. So if…

– You feel you socially awkward
– Feel shy in social situations
– Consider yourself out of practice with your social skills

Your host Morgan Fitzgerald will really pride himself on helping to make you feel at home during this event.

Who is Morgan?

He is a proud member of the LGBTIQA+ community, public speaker and mental health first aid instructor who cares about making a difference. Naturally leaning towards being an introvert himself, he knows how to ensure you feel safe and supported.

And the venue is just great! The Laird is one of Australia’s longest running gay-owned and operated venues. Formerly known as “Melbourne’s only bear and leather bar”, it progressed over the years to become a haven, meeting place and party space for same-sex attracted CIS and Trans males.

Important: If you would like to come along and cannot afford to pay the cost of event admission, a handful of tickets will still be available for those who may be experiencing financial hardship.

Please reach out to me by calling mobile 0417 021 106 if this is you and I will do my best to ensure you are able to join us on the night. All are welcome!
