Join us for an evening of new connections at this PoC Speed Dating event. This event is designed primarily for cis and trans/nb guys of colour who are into other guys. Monogamous and non-mono orientations; single, open, and polyam folks - are all welcome!

Leave behind the swiping and scrolling and engage in honest, face-to-face conversations with other babes from the 6ix. Whether you're looking for dates, romance, or new friends, this speed dating event is for you!

We want to foster an atmosphere of acceptance, respect, and inclusivity, embracing people from all walks of life, regardless of age, ethnicity/race, HIV status, or body type. We aim to facilitate connection without reducing people to sexual roles. (But please google "sides" before attending!).

Here's how the evening will unfold: Upon arrival, you'll be warmly greeted by your hosts, VIJAY @deejayvijay and RAHIM @ladyativan, who will guide you through the event. You'll be assigned a numbered table, and each round will last a set amount of time, allowing you to engage in a conversation with a different participant. As the evening progresses, you'll rotate through several rounds, ensuring you can meet various potential matches.

Don't worry about awkward silences or running out of conversation topics—we'll provide you with some icebreakers to help kick-start the dialogue.

At the end of the speed dating rounds, you'll have the chance to hang out with all the participants. You can share your contact information with those who caught your interest.

This event is not solely focused on finding a romantic partner but also on building a supportive community. Tickets for this event are limited, so secure your spot early.
