Speed Friending

Join us for a fun night where we get to socialize in new ways and skip the small talk.

This event is free!

We want to redefine and revive the ways we connect in a world where the old ways aren’t working. Be weird and awkward! Be direct! Say a whole lot or nothing at all in an environment where you feel empowered to speak in ways that feel authentic to you. Friendships and relationship dynamics are different for everybody and we all have different needs.

We want to create a space to learn more and get to know other people who are exploring it too. We are located at Belvederes Ultra-Dive! It's a lovely queer-friendly space in Lawrenceville that offers great drinks, music, pool tables, and plenty of space to connect.

Consensual Non-Monogamy (CNM) is the practice of having multiple connections with the consent of all parties involved. Relationship dynamics are different for everybody, and we want to create a space to learn more and get to know other people who are exploring it too.

Feel free to stop by whenever you can make it and make a new friend! We are here for the connections!

Pittsburgh CNM Community
We are a group of CNM folks trying to build more community in Pittsburgh and would love to collaborate on future events.

We want to put on socials, potlucks, roller skating outings, parent picnics, and more. If you have any ideas for a new event, let us know! If you have any feedback or would like to support us, email trishaswindell@gmail.com.
