Who We Are

Sonoma GayDar is a casual and extremely social networking group based in Sonoma, California, the heart of Wine Country. Our events attract anywhere from 20-200+ people, who come from all over the North Bay area, including San Francisco, to make new friends, network and enjoy the beauty and hospitality of Wine Country.


What We Do

We gather frequently at local bars, restaurants and wineries that welcome the LGBT community. We also celebrate our families and our love of the outdoors by holding events in local parks. Our events are both planned and “Pop-Up.”

Planned events, such as our popular anniversary gathering and annual Karaoke Night, are organized 3-4 weeks in advance and notice is posted on our social media pages, on our blog and via our newsletter (subscribe on the right). There’s rarely a need to RSVP; attend when you can. Food is often available, along with a no-host bar.

Our Pop-Up events, which are very popular with Sonoma locals, happen at the spur of the moment. Sonoma County is very gay friendly and there’s no shortage of welcoming venues. Follow us on Facebook and Twitter to be sure you learn of these events quickly. Also be sure to keep tabs on our blog.
