DCMovieBears is a social activity group for gay and bisexual men and their friends in the DC Metropolitan area. We get together every Wednesday night to see a movie at a local movie theatre. We often meet either before the movie for dinner or after for dessert or coffee.
We began as the DC Area Feminist Chorus, were known as Bread and Roses Feminist Singers from 1983 to the fall of 2009, and became Fortissima in October 2009. We have the same committment to music and social justice regardless of the name. We are open to all sopranos and altos, regardless of gender, and without audition.
Book Men DC is an informal group of men who are interested in gay literature (both fiction and non-fiction). Most of the men live in or near Washington DC, but a few members bring a breath of fresh air to our meetings from outside the Beltway, and visitors to DC are always welcome to drop in and join the discussion.
