Monthly Meetups

The LGBTIQA+ Over 50’s Project

The LGBTIQA+ Over 50’s Project supports people in the LGBTIQA+ communities who are over the age of 50.  The aim is to provide an opportunity for people to connect on a social level.  We have a number of regular social activities as well as one-off gatherings, information sessions and events.

You can download the flyer here for the various social activities listed below.

Monthly LGBTIQA+ Community Dinner

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

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

LGBTIQA+ Over 50’s Book Club

The Book Club is a social group of LGBTIQA+ book lovers. Unlike most book clubs where the entire group read the same book, this one is less formal and more social. The group meets and brings along the book/s they have been reading and let people know a bit about the book/s and if they thought it was worth reading or not. People are welcome to come along at any time and given the informal nature you can attend when you are available or each and every month.
Date: First Wednesday of each month
Time: 1 pm to 3 pm
Location: Catalyst Foundation, 149 Currie St, Adelaide

LGBTIQA+ Coffee Catch-Up

The Coffee Catch-up is an opportunity to connect and catch up with other LGBTIQA+ people who are over 50 in a relaxed and welcoming social environment. Anyone is welcome, look out for the rainbow flag!

Date: Third Thursday of each month
Time: 11 am to 12.30 pm
Location: Lucia’s, Adelaide Central Market (South West edge), 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
