What is a good place to find friends with similar interests in NYC?

Asked by DarkLightWolfBoy11 (49points) August 11th, 2010

Hey fluther! Darky here. I was just wondering what websites could I go on to find people who are homosexual or with similar interests I have and lives in New York. The reason for this is because I am Bisexual(mostly on the gay side) and I am trying to meet new friends. They can be people who accept me for who I am, who is Gay, Bisexual, Bi-Curious, Lesbian or could even be a transexual. Please leave a comment below if you have a idea of a website that I could visit. Thank you.

Well, honestly, I would suggest for you to go out in your neighborhood somewhere to meet new people instead. Does your school/college (if you’re that age) have a Gay-Straight Alliance? If so, that’s a great place to start.

Go online and look for a Gay community center in your area. New York definitely has a lot of that. They might even have something posted on a bulletin board at your local YMCA or youth center. I believe that PFLAG has a lot of meeting places in NYC. You could attend a meeting there and ask around about support groups for gays and lesbians.

Being online to meet new people is a a good start, I guess, but I think it would be even more beneficial to meet people in real life. :)

Best of luck!

Meetup. They have a meetup for everything and everyone. They have more groups in NYC that you could beat with a stick.
