Eugene Gay Men's Social Network (EGMSN)

GLBT Movie Night

Group Purpose:
The purpose or mission of the group is to provide an opportunity to view, enjoy and discuss GLBT films. The films to be shown are "GLBT" in that they contain GLBT themes or involve the work of GLBT actors, directors, writers, etc. Anyone interested in GLBT films is welcome and encouraged to attend. Group participants are invited and encouraged to host, but there is never any obligation to do so. A group discussion will be held after each film is shown.

Background:
The GLBT Movie Night group here in the Eugene/Springfield area meets EVERY Thursday night to view a GLBT film and discuss it afterward. It's a nice way to meet and chat with fans of GLBT cinema. We start the film at 7:30pm, but start arriving at 7:00pm to socialize and chat. We view the film at the home (or other chosen location) of one of our members. The hostess or host welcomes the movie group EVERY Thursday night for one month, then we move to another member's place for the next month, and so on. Although we started with a core group of 10-15 people, we've recently been having steady turnouts of about 20+ people!

If you're interested in joining this group, just show up or email me at rwold@pacinfo.com, and I'll add your email address to the group's email list. Membership in this group is FUN and FREE! :) We are open to men, women, gays, lesbians, bisexuals, transgenders, straight allies, and anyone else who enjoys watching films about the GLBT community.

Facebook: I've created a Facebook group for our Movie Nights and am posting the monthly film information there, as well as sending out the usual email. If you would like to access the group, just open Facebook and do a search on "Eugene/Springfield LGBT Movie Night Group". As soon as I start typing "Eugene" a list pops up with our Movie Night Group at the top. You'll need to join the group to see the contents. The group is "closed", meaning that anyone can see the group description, but only members can see the Wall, discussion board, and identity of members. In addition, nobody can join the group without the administrator's (my) approval. So members' identities and personal information will not be accessible to the general public. Check out the group and let me know what you think. Ron

Radical Faeries

The Radical Faeries are more a movement than an organization, started in the late 70's. There are now Radical Faerie gatherings in Europe and Asia; in Oregon, there are large gatherings at Brietenbush Hot Springs and at a Faerie Sanctuary near Wolf Creek at various times in the year. Faerie gatherings bring together gay and bi men (and sometimes others) interested in 'playing on the edge of who we are' spiritually, emotionally, sexually, and communally.

The Eugene/Springfield Radical Faeries have been revived and meet regularly. Also, there is an email list you can join to get emails about some out of town events and any local ones. To find out more get on the 'eugfae' list, contact Pippin. You can also visit the national website for general information on the Faeries: www.radfae.org

Talkie Walkies

The Talkie Walkies are a diverse queer men's and women's social group that started out as a weekly morning walk with a stop for coffee and conversation. Over the years, we have added other events, including going to movies and dinner out, hikes, attending plays and concerts, camping, going to track meets, and other fun activities. We usually meet every Wednesday at 9 AM at Alton Baker Park and then walk along the Willamette River, with a stop at 5th Street Public Market for coffee and an activity planning meeting. From that meeting, a Talkie Walkie Update, a calendar of upcoming activities, is developed and e-mailed to interested persons. A core group of about 20 people are involved, with over 160 people on the e-mail list who join us for the activities they wish to attend. New folks are welcome!

To receive the Talkie Walkie Update, or for more information, just e-mail Jerry Jacobson
