Overview of the LGBTI+ Social Groups

Monthly LGBTI+ Social Dinner

Catalyst’s social dinners, running since 2015, are held on the 1st Thursday of each month and open to all LGBTI+ people and their friends or partners. The dinner is a great opportunity to connect or re-connect with the LGBTI+ community, in a safe, friendly and welcoming environment.  New people and visitors are always welcome.

Bookings are essential, which you can do by calling 81688715, or emailing

Date: First Thursday of each month
Time: 6.30 pm to 9 pm 
Location: Arab Steed Hotel, 241 Hutt St, Adelaide

LGBTI+ Over 50’s Book Club

The Book Club is a social group of LGBTI+ book lovers. Unlike most book clubs, where the entire group read the same book, this one is less formal and more social. Bring along the books or other written sources that you’ve been reading, share your thoughts, and get tips for new things to read from others. You are welcome to come along at any time and, given the informal nature, you can attend when you are available or come along every month. All welcome, no bookings required.
Date: First Wednesday of each month
Time: 1 pm to 3 pm
Location: Catalyst Foundation, 149 Currie St, Adelaide

LGBTI+ Coffee Catch-Up

The Coffee Catch-up is an opportunity to connect and catch up with other LGBTI+ people who are over 50 in a relaxed and welcoming social environment. Anyone is welcome.

Date: Third Thursday of each month
Time: 11 am to 12.30 pm
Location: Diverse-City, 116 Grote St, Adelaide

LGBTI+ Film Screening

A monthly screening of LGBTI+ films. All welcome, no bookings required.

Date: Second Thursday of each month
Time: 1:00 pm – 3:00 pm
Location: Catalyst Foundation, 149 Currie St, Adelaide

Facebook Group

We have an LGBTI+ Over 50s Facebook Group for sharing things we’re watching, reading, doing, making and listening to. Feel free to join!

More information about the specific groups is available below, and a flyer for the groups is available here.

For more information or to come along to any of our social gatherings and events, please contact Lucy, our LGBTI+ Project Officer by calling 81688715 or email
