LGBT social groups and events are a great way to connect with other LGBT people, in a relaxed and informal way.
All of our social groups are strictly over 18's only, for under 18's please contact Lisa in shOUT! at firstname.lastname@example.org.
One of our most attended and longest running social groups is Saturday Drop-In. This is a casual social space for LGBT+ people, people who are questioning and allies. It runs every Saturday 2-4pm either online, or in-person at Westside Resource Centre. You don't have to attend for the full time, people are free to 'drop-in' for as long or as short a time as they want. Come along for chats, a cuppa and a few biscuits.
Queer & Crafty is one of our newer social groups, it is an arts and crafts based social group. This group currently meets every second Thursday evening 7-9pm at Westside Resource Centre. You can bring your own supplies and project to work on, or you can use any of the many supplies that are provided.

Anseo & Aiteach is a LGBT+ Irish Language Group. This group is for all levels of Irish, or indeed those with none at all who are keen to learn! It is not a formal Irish language class, but a casual social group which gives people the opportunity to speak a few words of Irish. They often run different activities and games as part of the group to make engaging with the language as fun as possible! This group runs once a month, alternating online and in-person.
