Friday: Discussion Group/Tool Shed

Friday, May 9 is the second Friday of the month, which means that it's time once again for our Discussion Group and DFA Night at Tool Shed.

Don't forget that the Discussion Group is now convening in a new location: the LGBT Center's Belardo Building (aka Food Bank), located behind the Sun Center at 610 South Belardo Road, Suite 500.

It's a cool, more industrial space that's both larger and more private. Guys who have toured it really like it!

The Discussion Group meets on the second and fourth Fridays of the month at 7:30. It's followed at 9 pm by DFA Night at Tool Shed. Gear up and join us!

Return of the Book Club: Screenplay Night

The Book Club bounces back this Saturday with a meeting where members get a “sneak preview” of the screenplay of a new gay action adventure movie set in the Coachella Valley.

On Saturday, May 10 at 6:30 pm we’ll be performing a reading of portions of this “work in progress” and the audience (limited to a “dirty dozen”) will be invited to give some constructive comments.

A well-known writer/director of several gay kink-related short subjects wants to hear his screenplay read aloud as well as get input from a gay audience sympathetic to the lifestyle of his characters.

In the feature-length story, one single mistake can cost a government hit man the most important thing in his life, his heart. This hard action-adventure film begins as a very experienced US Government agent takes out the wrong foreign official because of bad intelligence information. After meeting with his superiors, he returns home to find his partner, a former Marine, missing without notice. Eventually he finds out that his partner has been kidnapped by a ruthless drug lord, and that the bad intelligence was wrong on purpose. Now he must find out why he has been set up, while trying desperately to locate his partner at the same time.

Come and be part of the ‘dirty dozen’ who get to listen to this first public offering and comment. We’ll be meeting at Alex and Hank’s house in Cathedral Cove again. Since we’re limiting the audience, please RSVP ASAP to We’re also looking for a couple of good actor/readers [age range 30-50]. Please email Alex for details.

Bondage Boots and Books Party

In response to numerous requests, we thinking of another BONDAGE, BOOTS AND BOOKS party in the summer. We’ll need volunteers – for models, rope experts and guardians. If you’re interested, send a separate email to Alex.

Thank you Matt!

Due to his increased work schedule, Matt has to resign as co-chair. He will be sorely missed for all his efforts to get the club up and running month by month, as well as for his home-baked goodies. But we look forward to seeing him and Rob regularly at the meetings. Any member who feels excited enough to volunteer as co-chair will be warmly welcomed.
