Getting back into the swing of things!


We are back to posting after a few months absence. While we have been partnering with the Queer Night Out Waterloo Region MeetUp group and have been regularly hosting our monthly events, maintaining three sites (the website, Facebook, and MeetUp sites) has proven more challenging than initially thought! We will try to do better moving forward!

Note that we are also returning to basics - with the revival of our coming-out support group! We have had a number of people request that we revive the group, but to host them on a weekend. We are partnering with the Queer Night Out Waterloo Region MeetUp group to trial a Coming Out to Breakfast group on the 4th Sunday of each month. Check out the Events listing for all of the details.

June Waterloo Welcome Wednesday!

It is the first Wednesday of the month and we are hosting our Waterloo Welcome Wednesday at Starbucks!

We have not been as diligent as we would like in updating our blog posts, but are doing our best to keep the events listing updated. - always be sure to check out our events listing for all details. 

"Welcome" Back

The Wednesday Night Discussion Group is happy to be returning this Wednesday with our very first "Waterloo Welcome Wednesday"! These informal chats are targeted to new members of our local rainbow community, who are interested in learning more about the local LGBTQ+ community. You can find all of the details on our Events page.

We apologize for the unannounced hiatus over the past few months. Unfortunately, as a completely volunteer-based "labour of love", the WNDG is dependent on a (very) small group of dedicated volunteers to run our events. Sometimes, unanticipated "life" events can get in the way and our volunteers are no longer available.. We hope to ramp up to weekly events again soon, but will likely keep our events to once a month until we have more volunteers available.

Join is for the City of Waterloo's Neighbourhood Discussion

We hope that you will join us for a discussion with the City of Waterloo regarding their Neighbourhood Strategy! See the Events page for more details.

Note that we are adjusting the meeting location to accommodate the number of RSVPs. Those who have RSVP'd will be advised of the meeting location. If you still wish to join us, please RSVP to get the location information (see the events listing for RSVP details).

New Look.. new formats!

It took a bit longer than expected, but we have refreshed the WNDG website and group formats! Be sure to check out the site and our updated Formats page for all of the details.

We also hope you will join us for our monthly Dinner group this Wednesday.

We are a wee bit behind... but will be updating soon!

We are currently in the midst of our annual re-vamp of events and website and have fallen a little behind in updating our website (more details coming soon)!

We are in fact joining the Queer Night Out Waterloo Region MeetUp Group for dinner this week. We will be meeting at the Starbucks at the Corner of King and University at 7:15 pm. Check out the MeetUp group for more information (you need to be a MeetUp member to view the event):. Otherwise, just Contact Us for the details. 

Hope to see you there!

It's a Double Header!

This Wednesday we are hosting TWO events! Join us for a Po-Gay-Mon Go Walk at the University of Waterloo, followed by our regular Wednesday Night Dinner Group!

Check out the Upcoming Events listing for all of the details!

Taking a break this week but then returning... to Pokeman?

We will be taking a break this week and will NOT be hosting our regular discussion group at the University of Waterloo.

However, we will be returning next week with TWO events! In addition to hosting our monthly dinner group, we will be joining the Queer Night Out Waterloo region group for a Pokemon walk at the University of Waterloo. Check out our Upcoming Events listing for all of the details.

Dinner Adventure!

This week, we will be hosting our monthly dinner group, along with the fine members of the Queer Night Out Waterloo Region Meetup Group!

Rather than selecting a restaurant in advance, we are getting adventurous and meeting in a central location (close to a bunch of restaurants) and then seeing where people want to dine! Check out our Upcoming Events page for all of the details.

Apologies... over Dessert!

First, we apologize for not keeping the site up to date! It has been a busy June and we have not been able to stay on top of site updates. We will do our best to get our schedule for July through September posted shortly.

In the meantime, we hope you can join us for our monthly dessert group this Wednesday. As always, check out the Upcoming Events page for the details.

No Discussion This Week... But Consider Attending Local Vigil

Just a quick note that there is indeed no discussion group scheduled for this evening. Normally, we would have hosted a Guest Speaker dialogue at ACCKWA. Unfortunately, we had some scheduling conflicts and had to cancel the group this evening.

We will likely take a break from Guest Speakers over the summer months, focusing on our two more social events (Our Dinner and Dessert groups) for June, July, and August.

Instead of the discussion this week, we hope that you will consider joining the Waterloo Region Candlelight Vigil for the Orlando Shootings. You can find more details here.
