The Welcoming Committee is a movement of LGBTQ people who want to experience the whole world, and not just gay bars, in outrageous comfort.

How do we it? Easy. First, we build a huge community of LGBTQ folks. Then we bring hundreds of our members to concerts, theaters, sports games, nightclubs, and travel destinations.

Join the movement to find out where we're headed next. And if you want to spearhead the movement and help make Atlanta an even more awesome place to be LGBTQ, apply to join our volunteers, the Day 1 Club!
