One thought on “Coffee & Headlines • April 29, 2022”
With regard to events, activities, and meet-ups for the LGBTQ+ community in Puerto Vallarta, here are a few suggestions:

– A Page in the Sun book shop and coffee venue makes their space available to various groups — particularly book clubs, i.e. a possibility for the LGBTQ+ community (and a comfortable, welcoming location)
– Many volunteer opportunities exist for the LGBTQ+ community: the PURR Project, various churches, Pasitos de Luz, SETAC programs, education helpers in schools, the food bank, Vallarta Garden Club, orphanages, Men’s Gay Chorus, groups at the University of the Coast (on many subjects of interest), gourmet dinner clubs which meet in members’ homes or at restaurants, cooking classes, exercise classes, sports events…
– And I’m sure that most organizations welcome members of the LGBTQ+ community to their events, social get-togethers, and information-sharing meetings: Paradise Church; Democrats Abroad; the American School; International Friendship Club; Chamber of Commerce; Hospitality Association; tour groups; theatre groups; sewing or weaving clubs — fibre arts; art appreciation clubs; excursion groups, i.e. hiking, walking, sailing, kayaking…
