    6:30 PM: Doors Open on a FUNDRAISING NIGHT.
    All guests will be charged $10 admission. 

    7:00 PM: OpenTalk: This week our "discussion or all" will be facilitated by Gordon

    7:00 PM: 20-Somethings: If you're between the ages of 18 and 35, Nick invites you to hang out at the cool kids' table.

    8:00 PM: PASTABILITIES – The Board makes a pasta supper of a variety you won’t forget – and you bring your sawbuck, your ten-spot and enjoy a beautiful meal that’s only exceeded by the spirit of your friends.  This is a fundraiser, so let us know that you’ll be there and how many of your friends will join you so that we have enough food for everyone.  We’ll look forward to seeing you there!

    Our menu will grow as Board members report to their dishes to the webmaster and social committee, but here's what we know of so far:  

    • Bow Tie Pasta with Chicken a la Vodka
    • Chicken Bacon Ranch Pasta
    • Fusilli al Forno (baked fusilli pasta with beef, ricotta cheese, mozzarella, with a homemade basil marinara sauce)
    • Spaghetti & Homemade Meatballs in Tomato Sauce

    You may shorten everyone's time in the line at the front door by paying your admission in advance, online.  Just bring the receipt you receive via email, and Allen will supply your name tag.  Here is a handy, dandy link:  Pastabilities Reservation

    Film Festival:  7:00 PM 

    Have you ever wondered what it would be like to be LGBTQ in another country? Gaycation is an awesome cable series documenting the lives of LGBT people in other lands. We’ll be viewing and discussing the LGBT experience in 2 countries.  A program not to be missed!

    Following the film, Gordon will lead a discussion so we may share our feelings about what we just witnessed on the screen before us.

  • Vote Your Issues Primary Primer

    vote_collage.png

    Each year GAAMC hosts a special night we call Vote Your Issues, where we hear from candidates and others with experience in local politics. They help us identify which issues are most important, and how those candidates would address those issues.  

    2017's election is going to be extra significant for New Jersey residents.  Our list of possible candidates for the office of governor already contains 14 names, with two more names expected by March 15.  We are inviting all of them to come to GAAMC!  

    In addition to the race to elect a new governor, NJ will be electing their representatives in Legislative District 25, Congressional Districts 7 and 11, among others. These races are all vital to GAAMC's membership, friends, and relatives.  Return to this page often for updated lists of candidates, and the status of their invitations or R.S.V.P.'s.

  • Weekly Meeting

    Since September 11, 1972, the Gay Activist Alliance in Morris County has met at the Morristown Unitarian Fellowship every Monday, and that tradition continues.  Our standard format is that doors open at 6:30 PM, with our Open Talk and other discussion groups meeting from 7:00 until 8:00-8:15.  We then have an intermission for refreshments, to chat with friends, or whatever floats your boat.  Our main program begins at 8:30 and typically ends between 9:30 and 9:45.  

    We do not charge admission unless we are hosting a specific event that has an associated cost, such as our fundraising dinner "Pastabilities" in April, or our annual performance by the Shakespeare Theatre of New Jersey.  On these nights there is a fixed admission price of $10 per person.  

    Although we do not charge admission, we are wholly self-funded and we do have to pay for essentials such as rent, insurance, hosting this website, etc.  To cover those costs we ask members to donate $5 at the front door each visit, and we ask that non-members donate $7 per visit.  Of course, no one will be turned away for their inability or refusal to make a donation.  

    As information for this week's program gets confirmed, this event will be updated with more specific details.

  • Primary Election Day

    • Tuesday, June 06, 2017 at 08:00 AM

    NJ_Div_of_Elections_Primary_Banner.png

    Is voting in Primary Elections important?  Here is what some people have to say on the matter:

    Sandy Perry:

    Elections have consequences, and one major consequence of the 2016 election is sweeping changes to federal environmental and climate policy.

    These changes make New Jersey’s 2017 elections all the more critical, according to Bill Kibler, policy director at watershed watchdog Raritan Headwaters.  ...

    Only two states – New Jersey and Virginia – have major elections in 2017, and the world will be watching these off-year elections to gauge the mood of voters.  Read more

    Libby Hilsenrath:

    In small towns such as ours where one political party dominates the landscape, the Primary race is in fact "The Election."

    Absent a contender from the Democrat Party in November, as is the case in both Chatham Township and Chatham Borough, your Primary winners will be the ones who will preside over your Local Government for the years to come. In both the Township and the Borough, there is not enough room for all candidates to appear on the November ballot, hence the need for the Primary Election this Tuesday, June 2.

    This decision process will happen either with you or without you.  Read more

    Bob Jordan:

    Hillary Clinton vs. Donald Trump looks inevitable in the November presidential election, but that hasn’t stopped the last round of nominating contests in New Jersey and five other states on Tuesday from taking on outsized symbolic importance.

    Clinton is roughly 70 delegates (a number that will be reduced by weekend caucuses Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands) away from clinching the Democratic nomination and political observers expect her to scoop up what she needs from New Jersey when polls close at 8 p.m. California also offers enough delegates to put Clinton over the top but voting there continues for three more hours.  Read more
