The Welcoming Committee is a movement of LGBTQ folks who want to expand gay life outside of the gay bar.

We build huge communities of LGBTQs and bring hundreds of our members to iconic (and otherwise "straight") nightclubs, performances, sports events, and travel destinations—all in the name of a good time.

Join the movement to find out where we're headed next. And if you want to help make Seattle an even more awesome place to be LGBTQ, join our volunteers as part of the Corps!
