Little Gay Book is excited to offer our popular Personalized Speed Dating event in an easy-to-use online format.
A safe way to meet new people, these events are a TON of fun. By using Break Out Rooms in the Zoom Video Conferencing App and the same smartphone matching technology used during our in-person events, we remove the obstacles to getting face to face with a new friend and leave the rest up to you.
A lot can happen in 5 minutes, aren’t you curious who you might meet?!?
These events are open to all Lesbian/Bi/Transwomen/Genderqueer/Non-Binary folks. No men, please.
*Until further notice all events are now ONLY online due to Covid-19*
How it works:
Using simple smartphone technology, we tailor the event to the age and “type” of person you’d like to meet. You tell us where your preferred date lies on the masculine-feminine expression spectrum, along with their age-range and we send you a smartphone message after each 5-minute round to meet them. We remove the obstacles to getting face to face with a new friend and leave the real connection to you.
After each 5-minute round, you will add “feedback” about your date (“2nd date,” “Friend” or “Business”). 24 hours later, you’ll receive a smartphone message with contact info for your matches. While it’s not full matchmaking, this smartphone messaging technology allows a more tailored experience than random, public speed dating.
This is a great chance to meet other people who are also looking to connect and these events are filled with great conversations, smiles, and laughter. Lots of date matches *and* friend matches – come check it out!

“By the way, I want to share that I’ve been dating a woman I met at your June matchmaking event! Of all the thumbnails on the screen, I saw her and thought, “Oh, please put us in a break room,” and she was my first session. You knew what you were doing. 😉 ” Hope R
