How can I meet LGBT people in my country?

A+ A-

I feel so alone and I really want people I can relate to and empathize with. But I don't know how.
I also want a girlfriend, but it seems like I'm surronded by straight girls (and even if there are girls who are not straight, they'd probably hide it) so, how did some of you meet your boyfriends/girlfriends? Or your other LGBT friends? .

    This is such a common issue. If only we were more comfortable speaking about our identities and sexuality in public without fear of persecution we wouldn't be dealing with these concerns.

    I have the same question and usually I can only meet people in person if I first confide in them online which is risky, but I am not sure if where I am there is like a secret get-together of lesbians, bi's, trans people etc. I am SURE there are. I just don't know where they hang out!! When I have my own gettogethers it's always in my apartment and done very informally. And we call it "girl's night out" but actually it's a dinner and a hangout night for just LGBT people so we can share our secrets and be open about our relationships and thoughts.

    There isn't a cafe or a place where we can just walk there and expect to find them. Unless I don't know about it!

      I'm glad to hear that you meet LGBT people in your apartment. That's so nice. I would like to do the same here in RAK. But i am not sure if there are other lesbians here besides me and my gf. It's kinda frustrating not to be surrounded or be able to talk to people like us. I would love to share my experience being in a lesbian relationship for 4 years here in UAE and vice versa. Cheers!!!

  • I think we should develop this site and chat to help us get to know each other better , so we can prepare a real meeting to the members also it will help us find partners that may share the same interests especially that this site is not a porn site where it will be overwhelmed by immature ppl and fake personalities

    I guess that would be risky if you don't know the person who you will meet enough at first you should know him well trust him talk to him on the phone know some private stuff about him like his job or anything like that and his social accounts in case of something happened and then you can meet him but sure in public place like street or cafe or whatever but not a car or his house

      Sorry there was a mistake in my comment some of it didn't get post
      I was sayjng I knew online gays from whisper tinder and grindr it's not safe at all you completely talk to a stranger sometimes it goes well and sometimes it ends so bad I guess it's almost impossible to know LGBT people in your real life without social media help I mean if your friends are lesbo or gays the won't ever show it so I guess you will need social media help
