About

Fellowship Indy is central Indiana’s best environment to make gay friendships. Meeting continuously since 1977, we are Indiana's oldest and largest gay men's social organization.

Members are gay men who enjoy good company, good conversation, and the opportunity to make new friends. Dinners are an opportunity to reconnect with friends, and meet new people. Community leaders, gay and otherwise, are active members and give a new twist on happenings in the city. All members are adults over 21.

In every way Fellowship embraces gay pride. We affirm our sexuality; live out our compassion; and heal our wounds through building friendships based on trust, mutual support, and fun.

Our primary activity is holding pitch-in dinners -- once a month, typically Saturday night. We also have weekend pool parties in the summer plus a formal winter cocktail party. Dinners take place in member's homes and in clubhouses located in the Indianapolis metropolitan area. Usually 30 to 80 members attend each event.

Our goal is for every member to be a host – to circulate, talk with as many in attendance as possible, and to greet new members. A good host will introduce himself, chat on the topics of the day, and get to know someone in a social way. After a bit of time, the good host will think of someone with similar interests, and make the introduction.

Membership dues are $15 annually. Couples living at the same address pay only one membership fee. The dues cover the costs of the newsletters, dinner utensils, supplies and holiday food and so on.

 

Orientation

Fellowship Indy is largely a gay community, with bi-sexual members.

 

Composition

Men join Fellowship as both singles and couples. Singles who find a "significant other" commonly continue on as members as a couple.

 

Interracial

Fellowship truly welcomes men from all races and nationalities.

 

Non-Religious

Originally, Fellowship was loosely associated with a church, but now there is no religious connection. In fact, we are people of many faiths and spiritualities.

 

Privacy

Membership is confidential and is not sold or given out to any person or organization.

 

Respect

As guests in members’ houses, we enjoy the areas opened up for the occasion, and respect the private areas of the home.

 

Welcoming

We strive to welcome newest members and visitors as we enjoy our long time friends.

 

Politics

We are not politically oriented. Our struggle, though, has been a civil rights struggle which plays itself out in the political sphere. You’ll find the full range of political opinion here.

 

Smoking

Unless we meet in a home of a member who smokes, we ask that you smoke outside and dispose of your butts in the trash, not the lawn.

 

Special Needs

If you have special needs please talk with an Officer or contact us on the website BEFORE the next meeting to determine if we can meet that accommodation.
