LGBTI+ Social Groups


Changes to LGBTI+ Social Groups during COVID-19 restrictions:

Catalyst Foundation has made some changes to our LGBTI+ groups for over 50s in response to COVID-19. Whilst we have returned to face-to-face activities for most, our coffee catch up remains online (via zoom). Please see more information below. 

An updated calendar of dates for our activities is available here.

Please email lucyh@catalystfoundation or call 0436021896 for more information, and to gain access to the code numbers required to join the online groups.


Overview of the LGBTI+ Social Groups

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

Monthly LGBTI+ Community Dinner

**(Bookings essential until further notice)**

The 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 interstate and overseas visitors are always welcome.

Please note: the hotel is currently approved to host 45 people in their restaurant area. However, due to concerns about how people will maintain social distancing, it has been decided to reduce our booking to 24 people for the foreseeable future, which allows for 2 tables of 12, and adequate space between. Bookings are therefore essential, which you can do by emailing lucyh@catalystfoundation.com.au.

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: Currently online until further notice. Please see the calendar of events for the Zoom meeting ID. For help using zoom, please read on, or contact Lucy for help.

LGBTI+ Film Screening

A monthly screening or discussion 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


Need some help using or setting up Zoom?

Zoom is the program that we’re using to meet together online. It’s a great tool that means you can see everyone while you’re talking. It’s like a big video call. Sometimes it can be tricky to set up, and so we’ve written a page of instructions. Keep in mind, they may not work for you as everyone’s phone/tablet/computer is different. If you have any problems, or need any help setting up any part of your technology to enable you to join in with our LGBTI+ social groups, please call Lucy on 0436021896. The information sheet is available here.


NEW Facebook Group!

We have also created 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 0436021896 or email lucyh@catalystfoundation.com.au.
