Dublin, Ireland – The vast and vibrant LGBT community in Dublin is being brought together through GayToDo, a website and comprehensive guide to events, clubs, and activities throughout Ireland. GayToDo’s mission is to encourage friendships and help cultivate a sense of community for those in Dublin and beyond, achieved by their constantly updating calendar and ever-growing network of groups and clubs.
Many LGBT Dublin residents are unsure of where to connect with others in the community, outside of bars and nightclubs where attendees tend to focus on dating. Those looking for social events have traditionally relied on word-of-mouth to find activities intended for those in the LGBT community, making it difficult for some to expand their social circles. By recognising the collective need for a central, public calendar and an index of gay Dublin social groups of all types, GayToDo is providing a service that’s gaining notice among members of the community in Ireland for being, above all else, genuinely welcoming and useful.
GayToDo’s commitment to inclusivity is exemplified through their far-reaching network, where they hope to provide information on social opportunities for all members of the community. They provide up-to-date listings for events and club meetings, including relevant maps, directions, and information on tickets, among other details. Their search function allows users to look for events throughout Ireland or focus on a major city of their choice, including Dublin, Cork, Belfast, and even London. Additionally, results can be filtered by cost of attendance, time of day, and venue location.
In addition to events, the website features listings of associations that meet regularly and range in subject from gay Dublin acting groups, gaming clubs, choirs, and many more. Of particular note in their network is the Greenbow Deaf LGBT Dublin group, one of the only organisations for deaf and LGBT individuals in Dublin. Sports clubs also feature prominently, including both men’s and women’s teams for rugby, football, and tennis. The website is open for groups to add their activities and events, meaning GayToDo is always expanding their offering of social functions.
GayToDo is filling a niche for those interested in connecting with people of like mind across Ireland in a variety of group settings outside of the traditional pub and nightclub locations. With its constantly updating calendar and warm, friendly attitude, GayToDo is proving itself an indispensable resource for the LGBT community in Dublin.
