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.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org, 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.

now Radical Faerie gatherings in Europe and Asia;
in Oregon, there are large gatherings at
Brietenbush Hot Springs and at a Faerie Sanctuary

the edge of who we are' spiritually, emotionally,
sexually, and communally.

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 15 people are
involved, with over 50 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
