Meet fellow Kinky folks through facilitated mingling and dialogue!

We've loved hosting our monthly ENM speed friending/dating events at the Sycamore, so we're having a variety of events there this month to ring in the summer!

Let’s make some Kinky connections in real life! It’s not easy finding complimentary kink & BDSM partners in person. Bloom Community has heard your requests and we want to create a new space for kinky folks to congregate! Come make new friends, and explore new connections at our new monthly event.

All genders, sexualities, gender expressions, ENM styles, etc. are encouraged to attend our version of Los Angeles speed dating!! We welcome LGBTQ+, trans and non-binary, queer, BIPOC, kinky, and polyamorous folks of all kinds.

The White Horse Bar: Established in 1933, the White Horse is the oldest continuously operating gay bar in the nation and a location of significant events during the ongoing struggle for equality. While people of all orientations are welcome here we ask that everyone respect that this venue centers the LGBTQ+ community, its long history, and its rich culture. Thank you!

WE HAVE THIS EVENT every 2nd Thursday at The White Horse in Oakland, and every 4th Tuesday at The Sycamore in SF!
