  Ding-ding, Topica is dead!
Discovered the old SFQ Topica list with its annoyingly difficult subscription regiment stopped working. So I've created a new list for advance notice of events, particularly those that require advance registration, notices of application for classes, grants, etc. Not every single event on the website will be emailed out. To join the SFQueer announcemnt list go to the List info page and enter your email address, or email SFQueer-request@sfqueer.com with the word help without quotes in the subject. Check your spam filters for messages. Also check out
http://twitter.com/SFQueer
for reminders two hours before each event.


About this webpage:
What I list is basically events that I'm interested in. It's not a complete list of gay-related events in San Francisco, nor are all these events strictly about promoting the homosexual agenda, whatever that is. I tend to list events that are about people creating local, direct live entertainment, especially as related to spoken word, rock, hip-hop, and electronic music, art events, and so on. While I like to get email about events, I can't promise to list everything in this calendar that I'm told about. I prefer to publicize events that are gender-inclusive for attendees.

Email larrybob@gmail.com with event info. Please send plain text-- avoid attachments, gif or jpg flyers, e-vites, and html mail. ALSO DO NOT USE ALL CAPS EXCESSIVELY. Facebook links will only be posted if they can be viewed by someone not logged in on Facebook. I now do have a Facebook page, but not everyone does, so please take that into account.

    "Help us improve the treatment and awareness of urinary and sexual health of women who have sex with women (WSW) and men who have sex with men (MSM)!

    Researchers in the Department of Urology at the University of California in San Francisco are conducting a study on the urinary and sexual heath of WSW and MSM. We hope to promote understanding, attention and awareness of this topic in the medical community.

    If you are 18 or older, WSW or MSM, We need your help completing a TOTALLY ANONYMOUS internet based survey. The survey takes about 15-20 minutes to complete.

    For WSW: http://urology.ucsf.edu/wswhealth.html
    For MSM: http://urology.ucsf.edu/msmhealth.html

    Questions? Please contact the study investigators: Benjamin Breyer, MD (bbreyer at urology.ucsf.edu ) and Alan Shindel MD (shindela at urology.ucsf.edu)

    Writing Group for Gay Men:
    GuyWriters, a Bay Area network for gay men who write, is currently seeking writers to join our two writing groups -- one for poets and one for prose writers. The writing groups are a helpful and lively way to improve your craft as a writer by sharing your work with other writers and receiving constructive feedback.
    The writing groups meet twice a month and are run on a quarterly basis: members send the group at least one piece of work before the first session, then gather at a member's home for six consecutive meetings to critique each other's work, and finally share their work with an audience in a GuyWriters public reading or publication.
    GuyWriters members are diverse in age, backgrounds and writing styles, and writers of all skill levels are welcome.
    Both writing groups meet on the second and fourth Tuesdays of the month. If you want to join us for the next session or have any questions, send an email to GuyWriters@yahoo.com by April 6th, 2007. We look forward to hearing from you!
    GuyWriters celebrates and supports literary creativity in the gay male community through a speakers series, member readings, writing groups, and a monthly newsletter. Check out our website for more information: http://www.GuyWritersOnline.org
    There's a cool new Google maps mashup which shows gender-neutral bathrooms in San Francisco and elsewhere. Check it out and add bathrooms you know about to the list! http://safe2pee.org/

    20 Something Gay Men's Potluck!
    - Are you somewhere in or around your twenties?
    - Are you looking to make new friends?
    - Are you interested in cooking or willing to give it a try?
    - Can you come to a PotLuck once a month?
    If you answer yes to these questions then you should read on!
    Here are some more details.
    This is a club for men in or around their twenties to build friendships with their peers, practice entertaining and cooking for more then just one. The potluck has been going now for two year and has a really great bunch of guys.
    The group has a yahoo group web page that we use to chat with each other and announce pot lucks and other activities. So you have to have access to email and be willing to join yahoo groups.
    We meet on the first Saturday of every month at someone's house in or around San Francisco. Your not required to be a host (although we always need hosts) to join but we do ask that you do come to as many pot lucks as possible.
    Since the potlucks are usually held at member's houses we like to screen our members closely. If you could write a bio about yourself, including, what you do, where you live, how long you have been in the city, where you came from, why you moved here, why you want to join the pot luck, what your hobbies are, what your cooking experience is and anything else you would like to add, that would be great! If you have any specific questions just ask! I look forward to hearing from you! Contact me at cobalt555@earthlink.net
