Bridgemen is a group of gay, bi and trans guys interested in expanding our social world beyond the bar scene. We welcome men of any age to get together for a good time—and to make a difference in our community. Join us for community service projects across the Bay Area, social events and leadership opportunities. We organize many types of group service projects that can range from feeding the homeless, to helping the environment, to improving the lives of kids, LGBT members and others in our community. Do right by your city—and make friends while you’re at it.
Meet some of our members, below, and find out how they have made a difference. Then, join us!
Douglas helped serve holiday meals to hundreds of LGBT seniors in partnership with Openhouse. Bridgemen dished out food, shared friendship with our elders, and strengthened bridges between generations in our community.
Dennis helped to collect and deliver toys to hospitalized children and teens living with HIV and their siblings at UCSF. The toy drive and delivery helped make the holidays much brighter for these families in need of some joy.
Mike helped to restore a critical salmon habitat at Muir Beach. He and other Bridgemen brought in hundreds of indigenous plants to help endangered Coho salmon follow their natural migration pattern from the creek to the ocean. When Mother Nature needs a little help, she can count on Bridgemen.
Obay helped to build a 36-unit condominium building for low-income families in Daly City through Habitat for Humanity. By reaching out to communities in need, Bridgemen tear down walls between gay and straight, young and old, rich and poor. We are making San Francisco a better place to live for everyone.
