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 do it? Easy. First, we build a huge community of LGBTQ folks. And then we simply bring hundreds of our members to concerts, theaters, sports games, nightclubs, and travel destinations in and around the city.
Join the movement to find out where we're going next. And if you want to spearhead the movement, help us launch, and make San Francisco an even more awesome place to be LGBTQ, sign up to volunteer as part of the Day 1 Club. Want to keep up with TWC news and scope out takeover pics in real time? Follow us on twitter!

SPRING BREAK TAKEOVER
MARCH 25-29, 2015
Let's cut to the chase. We're taking over an entire island. Puerto Rico is known for colorful tree frogs and rum, so naturally there's no place we'd rather be for the first beach days of the year.
