**People connect in many different ways and for many different reasons. While we work to bring people together here at Social Tinkering, we also acknowledge that living different experiences affects how we interact with the world and how the world interacts with us. Our smaller group meetups are designed to create opportunity for deeper connections with relevant topics and activities associated with each related group.
Monthly Meetups and Events
While we enjoy our year-round LGBTQ+ community socials, we especially love to make space during the month of June to celebrate Pride. We celebrate and honor those who were involved in the Stonewall Riots and all those who've led the way since to fight for justice, equity, diversity, and inclusion for the LGBTQ+ community. Join us in our activities throughout the month to show our own LGBTQ+ community they are seen, valued, celebrated, and most importantly - they belong. CLICK HERE to learn more!
Light Up Rutland! is our signature holiday lights competition and fundraiser. Every year we encourage everyone in Rutland County to decorate to raise holiday spirit and connection to show each other we're here and happy to celebrate the season together.
