LGBTQ+ Pizza and Boardgames Meetup to be Held at Horace Mann Square - Oct 9

LGBTQ+ Pizza and Board games Meetup to be Held at Horace Mann Square outside Piezoni
The "Non-Scene" Gay Friends of Greater Boston, a social group, will be hosting a pizza and board games meetup for the LGBTQ+ community right here in Franklin! The free event will be held at Horace Mann Square outside Piezoni on October 9th, 2021, at noon. Board games will be provided, but attendees can also bring their own. Attendees are also encouraged to support local downtown dining establishments and eat with us outdoors.

The "Non-Scene" Gay Friends of Greater Boston was established in 2010 to provide an alternative to the traditional LGBTQ+ nightlife. "I've found it very difficult to meet other LGBTQ+ people in Franklin, outside of commonly used dating apps" explained meetup organizer and Franklin resident Maxwell Morrongiello. The meetup is now one of the world's largest LGBTQ+ meetup groups with almost 8000 members.

Town Councilor and ally Cobi Frongillo applauded the upcoming event explaining, "only a few years ago, it was commonplace to see Franklin students wait until college to come out because they weren't sure they'd be supported in town. To now be hosting meet-ups for our LGBTQ+ neighbors is a fantastic step forward in supporting all community members."

Attendees are asked to be fully vaccinated and wear masks indoors, with masks being optional outdoors. "During these crazy times, we want to provide opportunities for people to socialize, while also ensuring people can remain safe," explained Morrongiello.

 "I have had wonderful experiences connecting with the LGBTQ+ community in the Boston area through this meetup, had fun doing a wide range of activities together, and not worry about fitting in" expressed longtime meetup member and event attendee Matthew Shibin. "The organizers do a fantastic job and are always open to feedback and suggestions about new activity ideas."

Attendees are required to create an account to join the meetup group, and rsvp at:
