Looking to make more friends in the LGBTQ+ community? Trying to meet some new faces after 18 months of the pandemic? Then come join us for an upcoming night of ‘Speed Friending’, hosted by Go Gay DC!

Based on the popular ‘speed dating’ format, ‘Speed Friending’ is a social event where attendees are paired-up with strangers for multiple rounds of platonic conversations. There will be approx. 10 structured rounds (5 minutes each) where participants will be randomly paired-up with each other. Using recommended ‘icebreakers’, both participants will engage in friendly discussion about a wide range of topics. And once they hear the bell ring, participants will thank each other and ‘rotate’ to the next person.

COVID-19 Protocols: this event will be held primarily indoors (with an open patio door for ventilation), and vaccination cards are subject to being checked upon arrival. And in accordance with DC law, folks will have to wear their face masks if they’re not eating or drinking.

Attendance is free and guests will have access to a full hotel bar (to purchase snacks and libations), so we encourage you to register your attendance in advance! We hope to see you there!
