The Cambridge Men's Group

The Cambridge Men's Group is a social group for gay and bi men in the Cambridge, Mass. area -- and their friends. We meet regularly for social & other events, either at member's homes, local restaurants, theater or movie excursions, day trips, etc. Where we go with this is as much up to you as it is to anyone else.

Although based in Cambridge, we have members who live or work in Somerville, Arlington, Boston & beyond. Come join us!

We use the Yahoo Group CambridgeMensGroup as our main way of communicating, so if you'd like to get on our group list:
