Godless Perverts Social Club July 17! Topical Thursday: “So, Where Ya From? Local Differences in Sex and Religion”

Godless Perverts Banner

The Godless Perverts Social Club is now meeting twice a month — first Tuesdays, and third Thursdays! The Godless Perverts Social Club is the socializing/ hanging out branch of Godless Perverts. Community is one of the reasons we started Godless Perverts. There are few enough places to land when you decide that you’re an atheist; far fewer if you’re also LGBT, queer, kinky, poly, trans, or are just interested in sexuality. And the sex-positive/ alt-sex/ whatever- you- want- to- call- it community isn’t always the most welcoming place for non-believers. So please join us! Our next meetup is our Topical Thursday — July 17.

godless-perverts-slide-where-you-fromWe’re doing slightly different formats for the two clubs. Our Third Thursday Social Clubs are a little more structured — we’ll pick a topic, let people know what it is ahead of time, have a moderator/ host who leads the discussion, maybe even get in special guests to guide discussions on particular topics. In July, that’ll be Thursday July 17. The topic for this Topical Thursday: “So, Where Ya From? Local Differences in Sex and Religion.” Community standards of religiosity and sexuality vary across the map (and with race and class even in the same place). Tonight’s moderator is a Yankee who spent most of his school years in the suburban South. Where have you lived, and how did the people there regard their religious and sexual norms — and the people who deviated from them? Are you from New England? Costa Rica? Did you live in Texas? South Africa? Were you a military brat? Did you grow up in an immigrant community? Come tell us about your experiences!

The first Tuesday Social Clubs are more loosely-structured casual affairs: we typically start with a check-in question and do a little moderating to make sure everyone gets to talk who wants to, but mostly we just nosh and sit around schmoozing about whatever topics happen to come up. Our next Casual Tuesday will be Tuesday August 5.

All Social Clubs are at Wicked Grounds, San Francisco’s renowned BDSM-themed coffee house — 289 8th St in San Francisco, near Civic Center BART — for an evening of conversation and socializing. All orientations, genders, and kinks (or lack thereof) welcome. 7:00 – 9:00 pm. There’s no admission, but we ask that you buy food and drink at the counter, and/or make a donation to the venue. (Their food is quite yummy, with both full dinners and lighter snacks/ beverages, and they have the best milkshakes in town.)
