• Madison Gay Video Club
The Madison Gay Video Club was formed in 1989 to introduce gay/bi men to the wide variety of gay-themed films available, while at the same time providing an opportunity to socialize and share information in a non-threatening party-like atmo- sphere.
Parties meet in a private home on Madison’s east side on the first and third Sat- urdays of each month from 8:00 PM – 2:00 AM. No RSVP is required and it is “open door”, so you may arrive and leave whenever you wish. Newly released feature films from the major studios are shown at 8:30 PM, followed by requests from the Club’s large film library. Titles of the features are published in local papers and several statewide gay publications. Reviews of the current as well as the past features can be found on the Club’s website. Separate viewing areas are provided for the non-sexual, gay-themed films and the sexually explicit hardcore films, including a large indoor hot tub with TV overhead and a separate play room.
All gay/bi/curious men over 21 are welcome. Typical attendance at the parties is 50+. A $10 donation is requested to cover the food buffet, munchies, drinks and towels for the hot tub. There are no additional dues or fees, and you do not need to reveal any personal information.
For more information and the party location, send an email or phone.

• Men’s Coming Out Group
This is a closed group that meets weekly on Wednesday nights for 10 weeks. The purpose of the group is to offer support to men who are dealing with the realization they are not heterosexual and how that affects their everyday lives and to support those people. The group will identify and discuss the stages of coming out and explore topics such as how to deal with one’s own feelings about coming out, fam- ily members, physical and sexual safety, legal rights and discrimination, and more. Future meetings may be set up on a needed basis.
