The newly formed Blacktown Outdoors and Social Group has a new website.

The group, which organises activities and outings for western Sydney’s gay men, was established last year.

“There are already a few groups for lesbians, but nothing to support gay men in our area, something I had to change,” group founder Mike Moore said.

“We get together on the second Sunday of every month for activities in and out of Sydney.

“It’s just a great way to meet gay people in the area. New friendships have been formed and it’s doing great things for all involved.”

He said gay groups of this kind have had tremendous success, especially in western Sydney and rural areas. They assist in building strong support networks in the area.

“More gay men and women are moving to western Sydney. There is definitely a gay male population in Blacktown,” Moore said.

“We only hope our group will grow and move forward, catering for the growing gay population.”

The new website is at www.users.on.net/babybear8 and their email address is [email protected]
