Welcome to Fellowship of Older Gays
Fellowship of Older Gays (FOG) is a California Mutual Benefit Corporation to provide social activities, emotional support, and education for older gay men. The primary focus of FOG is to provide weekly activities for its members.
FOG has started additional in-person activities – breakfast, lunch, and dinner events. These will be held in places that have OUTDOOR venue & service. See calendar for specifics.
Saturday coffee event on December 25th is cancelled.
Time to renew memberships. Members not renewed by January 21st, 2022 will no longer receive a newsletter. The annual dues has increased to $20.00.
Even with the increase, the dues does not cover ALL the expenses of this organization. We have been able to maintain the basic dues because many members have voluntarily contributed above and beyond the annual membership fee. Your dues AND extra donations helps cover insurance, subsidizing the Anniversary dinner & summer picnic, this website, and other expenses. With your continued support and dues, we will continue to make a difference in the lives of many gay men in San Diego.
